Hermès. What’s not to like? Established in 1837 and still going strong, actually stronger! As for oozing class, style and authenticity – it’s the favourite, hands down. But at the same time, they can have fun, be edgy, urbane and cool and in doing so, connect with a broader, more current, hipper market. Like at last night’s event, orchestrated by the indomptable Karin Upton-Baker. What a brand!
