Hermès is one of the many big high fashion luxury goods manufacturers that are originally from France. The company was established in 1837 by Thierry Hermès and it mainly specializes in leather, lifestyle accessories, home furnishings, perfumery, jewellery, watches and ready-to-wear. The logo of Hermès is, since the 1950s, one of a Duc carriage with a horse.
Originally Thierry Hermès started as a creator of high-quality wrought harnesses and bridles for the carriage trade. His sons, and grandsons, took over the business afterwards and ‘changed’ the business into what it is doing now, this was after 1915. Already in 1924 the first stores outside of Paris were opened in New York and the first women’s collection was put out for sale in 1929. From that moment on, the more ‘familiar’ products, that will still see and know now, were introduced.
From 2008 till now the company has 14 product divisions with different types of products such as encompassed leather, scarves, ties, men’s and women’s wear, perfume, watches, stationery, footwear, gloves, enamelware, decorative arts, tableware and jewellery.
