Hermès à tire d’aile, 30 years of window display exhibited at Paris Grand Palais

For one months, Hermès takes over Paris Grand Palais with a lovely exhibition called “A tire d’aile”. Throughout this beautiful exhibition running from November 8 to December 3, 2017, Maison Hermès pays homage to Hermès window display designer from 1978 to 2013, Leïla Menchari, by reconstructing 8 window displays in the galleries of the Parisian monument.

Whereas Paris superstores window displays are attired in thousands of jewels to celebrate Christmas 2017, at the Grand Palais, we attend an incredible show, an exhibition of Hermès most beautiful window displays highlighted from November 8 to December 3, 2017.

These displays are the fruit of Leïla Menchari’s work. Tunisian painter graduated from Tunis school of arts and later from Paris school of arts, she arrived at Hermès in 1961 and in 1978, she became the art director entrusted with Hermès stores window displays. In 35 years, Leïla Menchari created over 150 each more wonderful than the next for the store located 24 Faubourg Saint-Honoré with a strong taste for Oriental decors and silks.

Moreover, like a tribute, Hermès offers us a trail featuring eight playlets around the extraordinary universes thought up by Leïla Menchari, a Christmas story before time…
