Hermès present their iconic products in their new 640-square-metre boutique, opened in March 2017, just opposite the opera. When you enter the rooms, refurbished from the historic Münzarkaden (mint arcades), you immediately see an impressive room divider, a frame of rhythmically-arranged strips of impeccably-polished wood with a variety of silk items presented on it. In the boutique you can find ready-to-wear products, the famous Hermès scarves, handbags and perfumes. In the lower floor, the Living department is stocks tableware and riding accessories, while upstairs, there are elegant women’s wear, leather goods, jewellery and watches. At the heart of the store is the spiral staircase, which links the three floors and is topped by a luminous ceiling. To emphasize their vertical lines, the stairs have a surround made of cherry-wood strips, with steps that seem to be supported by an invisible hand.
