We’ve covered the exquisitely detailed work of Hermes Window Design Director Leïla Menchari previously, and she continues to create unique, spellbindingly intricate designs for the brand’s Paris flagship with the change of every season. Hermes released this photo of Menchari’s Winter 2011 work on Facebook yesterday, leaving all of us playing a dazzling game of Where’s Waldo with some of the world’s most expensive handbags. How many can you spot? Click the image for a larger view.

  • Ellen

    I found 6 bags; I would like to know how many there actually are. The display is lovely! (ipad)

  • FashionIsMyHobby

    Wow, way over the top and lots of fun! (ipad)

  • CMM

    I found 5…pretty sure there are more. (ipad)

  • Vitta

    For once, I don’t find such opulence appealing. What I like about Hermes is their sleek, clean, sophisticated, minimalistic lines. This display is just too much… and impossible to see the product. But perhaps that was the idea in the first place – Alice in the Wonderland?… (ipad)

  • Stacy

    All that ‘busy’ is hiding the beautiful bags! Boo!!! I think I saw 6 bags, but 5 for sure. It is very pretty tho. Different. (ipad)

  • Sue

    Very pretty. Would love to see a coffee book of their window displays (ipad)

  • Norlite

    Stunning! (ipad)

  • Sosti

    Wow, what a beautiful display! I agree with Sue! I would love to see a coffee table book of their windows too! (Ipad)

  • 19yearslater

    Very pretty, but I like ads who show me a situation I would like to be in or person I would like to be. This window does neither for me, personally. (ipad)

  • Donna D

    Beautiful! and I found five. (ipad)

  • Heather

    It’s so beautiful, like a flowery Hermes fairyland! (ipad)

  • Lianne

    It’s a gorgeous display, but since I can only see three bags, maybe a little *less* busy so that you can actually see what they’re trying to sell? (ipad)

  • Limey

    too much going on here!!! (ipad)


    this is a window display!!!! (ipad)


    WOW! (ipad)


    i love it (ipad)


    never seen anything like it (ipad)

    Beautiful! I can only imagine how long that display must have taken to put together!


  • nick

    Too much going on… (ipad)

  • Merve

    Talk about totally removing focus from the product. I know Hermes bags kinda sell themselves but seriously was there a free for all at the flower market?

  • Raquel

    i live in paris,i saw the boutique, it’s Pierre Hermé Macaron in the store !!! very delicious and amazing windows

  • Antonia

    Amazing! (ipad)

  • christine

    Very Alice in Wonderland – very spring and fun, but the pretty bags get lost. But I guess it forces you to stop stare and look for them. Where’s Hermes (waldo)?

    • christine

      Wonder if you can smell the flowers there so many (ipad)

  • Genius Loci


  • Jelita78

    this is frustrating!
    i can’t see the bags clearly!!
    i can tell that hermes wants to create the mysterious-kinda-display but wish they would put the bags on a better-viewing position!
    after all, it’s the bags that we want to see!! (ipad)

  • Donna C.

    Wow very pretty. I spotted five (ipad)

  • Mochababe73

    I saw about five.
    Is this to display the bags or the flowers? I would love it if this were some little girl’s birthday party.
    However, it’s a wonderful marketing strategy. It’s so much going on that you have no choice but to go inside of the store to see the handbags. Which may also lead to a purchase.

  • edoardo

    It looks dreamlike, I lvoe this window!


  • edoardo
  • quimerula

    OMFG! (ipad).

  • Diane

    feels like wonderland! (ipad)

  • swati

    Is this some sort of a game ? Spot as many bags as you can ? …. the window is creative and colorful but totally overshadows the bags and kill the first rule of marketing – never trade product focus for style (ipad)

  • dalex

    It’s creative but it looks borderline tacky. I didn’t even notice handbags. (ipad)

  • Shana

    Wow, stunning! (ipad)

  • Heather

    Beautiful! I can’t find more than 4 bags, but I guess they don’t need to “sell” in the window. (ipad)

  • Lorie

    Just goes to show you that Hermes land is a special, dreamy place that only the chosen few can go. Sigh.

  • Joseph

    Has anyone ever purchased or heard of hauteexclusives.com which is a reseller of Hermes Bags.

    I would like to purchase a bag from this store but my banker/accountant has demanded that I reassure them that this is indeed a ligit business since I am being asked to send monies to a person that I’ve never talked to in person.

    Any feedback is more than truly appreciated.

    With thanks
