The Best Gifts Come In Orange Boxes

Brooke Friedman

Legendary French manufacturer Hermès is a name synonymous with luxury. Known for their sought-after accessories and wait list worthy handbags, Hermès is an iconic powerhouse in the world of high-end fashion. Since establishing the company in 1837, Hermès has been recognized for hand crafting the finest leather goods and accessories. The Hermès Fashion House was started in Paris as a harness making shop for caliches and carriages. It provided the finest bridles and harnesses for nobleman throughout Europe. It wasn’t until 1922 when the company introduced their first handbag, and in 1929 released their first collection of women’s fashion. During the 1970’s, Hermès continued to expand their empire, creating international shops to reach larger and richer markets. While other fashion houses crumbled to the ground, Hermès continued to grow and became one of the world’s most valuable luxury brands. Today, owning a piece of Hermès is far more than a fashion statement; it is a symbol of exclusivity.

Our upcoming January 25th auction features a large collection of bandannas, pocket squares, stoles and more! Whether you are just starting your collection, or a certified Hermès addict – Alex Cooper has the perfect accessory for you.

All of these classic Hermès treasures can be tied and accessorized in countless ways. Making them not only staple fashion pieces, but also a versatile way to add a touch glamour to any outfit.
