Hermes is a famous French fashion and luxury brand. It was founded in 1837 and today it specializes in leather, accessories, fragrances, luxury goods, and ready-to-wear. Since the 1950s, Hermès has been identified as a horse’s carriage.
Thierry Hermes, the son of a French man and a German woman, was born in Krefeld (Germany) and his family moved to France in 1828. In 1837, Thierry Hermès founded Hermès on the boulevards of Paris, a company dedicated to serving the European aristocracy.
In 2000, Hermès opened its first John Lobb footwear store in New York. In 2003, the solo Margiela left Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier as chief designer, and launched the 2004-05 autumn / winter fashion week.
After 28 years, Jean-Louis Robert Guillame Frédéric Dumas-Hermès retired from Hermès in January 2006 as head of the company. Patrick Thomas joined the company in 1989.
