On Friday, May 18th, Hermès opened a new store at the Stanford Shopping Center located in Palo Alto. The Hermès Palo Alto boutique will be the house’s 34th store in the United States. The new address is likewise a marriage of state-of-the-art technology and traditional craft. The architectural features of the Hermès store in Palo Alto evoke a sense of comfort by connecting with the local environment, embracing natural light and the surroundings, and celebrating the handmade, while simultaneously moving into the future. The composition of the space provides a streamlined, elegant setting not only for the Hermès collection of métiers, but also its collection of art, including digital installations by artists such as Eric Vernhes.
