AVENUE headed over to 583 Park Avenue (between 63rd and 64th Streets) for a sneak peak at Hermes’ festival of crafts on Tuesday evening. What we found was nothing short of impressive; devoted craftsmen and women, explanations behind some of our favorite items, and a whole new appreciation for the art of sewing!! Make sure to check it out–if you have ever wondered how the scarves are made (hundreds of cocoons of silk and sometimes 40+ layers of print!), how the iconic saddle is stitched (you have to see this one for yourself), how the timepieces tick, the handbags are constructed (that handle will not quit on you) and more.


 


It’s on at 583 Park, now through September 9.
