Hermes

Walk past the Madison Avenue windows of Hermès this summer, and you may find yourself in a brighter mood. The house recently unveiled its latest Vitrine d’Artiste edition—a series of windows conceived by Brooklyn-based artist Edward Granger. This year’s theme—the series has been ongoing since 2005—is Flâneur Forever, (translation, forever strolling), which Granger interprets as an immersion in the urban environment. In his window displays, architectural elements reference scaffolding, geometric building forms and even the classic perspective drawing, referencing Granger’s own background in architecture. Here, we speak to the artist about the project—nearly a year in the making—his architecture heroes, breaking boundaries and some wise words from James Turrell.
