As part of its Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Collection, French luxury brand Hermès has worked with French graffiti artist Kongo. The artist created several scarves in his signature style, featuring an all-over tag design. Available at Hermès boutiques around the globe now, part of the proceeds will be donated to Kongo’s graffiti collective kosmopolis, which supports young artists.
We like the cause of the projects a lot, yet we are not sure how excited we are about a graffiti collaboration in this case. One of the things that we always most appreciated about the French brand, is that they did not do collaborations of such kind. What do you think?
