Bleus d’Ailleurs evokes the countless sea voyages of exploration and trade between Paris and Asia world taking inspiration from the traditional Ming porcelain and from the array of shapes seen in nature. Honeycombs, blooms and petals, outlined in black so as to give a modern spin to the traditional porcelain design, combine brightness and simplicity yet with a sense of depth and heritage. The designs are functional and reminiscent of ancient pottery where the stunning geometric shapes in graceful nomadic blue stand out against the dazzling white background bringing together daily life and imagery of travel.
Founded by Thierry Hermès in Paris in 1837, Hermès began as a purveyor of fine leather equestrian goods for European nobility. Over the next two centuries, the house grew to offer luxury bags, clothing, timepieces, and refined housewares that reflect a continued focus on quality and an unmistakable French flair.
