Leather Forever” is an invitation to discover the exquisite world of Hermès leather.  The exhibition is both poetic and informative. It appeals to all our sense from the second you get into the museum. The smell of leather, the background music, the beautiful display of their bags, trunks, saddles and equestrian accessories and the carefully lit rooms. All together reveals the history behind Hermès and the reason why the simplicity and the elegance of this brand will be in vogue forever.

The spectacular installation by Japanese Flower Artist Makoto Azuma, whose approach to flowers as art is extraordinary.
