Hermes, Behind the Scenes

Our post yesterday got us thinking of perhaps the most revered orange in the world, that of the Hermes box.  For 2011, Hermes in collaboration with directors Frederic Laffont & Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat present a documentary Hearts and Crafts to honor the true craftsmanship and the individuals at the heart of the creation process at Hermes.

The video premiered on the Sundance Channel this past Saturday, but can be viewed in full on fullfrontalfashion.com.  Needless to say, the imagery is stunning... an artistic behind-the-scenes look at the craftsmanship behind this revered brand.

"A good craftsman can create a world that a machine's incapable of."  Hearts and Crafts is a beautiful film honoring human craftsmanship in our sometimes overwhelming age of technology.  (How ironic that it can only be viewed online?) Either way, if you appreciate the superior products and attention to detail found behind the name Hermes, it's a must see!
