(belated) RIP, Jean-Louis Dumas
Photographer: Paolo Roversi
No points for timely reporting here, since Monsieur Dumas passed away on 1 May. It seemed superfluous for me to say anything about his passing and his achievements at Hermes, but I found these two images saved on my computer and remembered everything I like about Hermes and well, it seemed only right to make some space for the man behind all that.
Mr Dumas seemed to understand what was the best of Hermes and turned illustrious lineage into something relevant, modern and timeless, prestigeous but not too precious.
