Here are three words that you never thought you'd read in succession: Hermès. Sample. Sale. And it's happening in our own fair city. Yep, we're hyperventilating a little, too. Hermès is holding a sale event starting today, with prices slashed for men and women's ready-to-wear, as well as footwear and scarves. We have a sneaky feeling that this might be the sale event highlight of the year. In other words, cancel all plans right now.
Details of the precise nature of the swag have been kept on the down-low, and while we assume that getting our paws on a Constance or a Kelly at 95% off is not in the cards, it's definitely worth a trawl for some of Christophe Lemaire's highly-covetable creations.
The French fashion house has a fan-base that verges on the obsessive, so we imagine it's going to be pretty rammed in there. With this in mind, here's some friendly advice: Make sure those elbows are nicely sharpened, and consider accessorising your look with shin and shoulder pads. Just a thought.
When: Friday, January 11 from 8:30 a.m. - 7 p.m., Saturday, January 12 from 10.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
