Leïla Menchari has done it again. Hermes’ Window Design Director always comes up with fantastical displays for the window at the brand’s Paris flagship store, and her design for Spring 2011 debuted yesterday morning on Facebook. In contrast to some of Menchari’s previous work, spring’s look has a stark, industrial quality to it that highlights not only the sharp lines of Hermes’ iconic handbags, but also the details of the brand’s trunks and saddlery. What say you – do you prefer Hermes displays to be more opulent, or is this a welcome change of pace?

    Cool, I like it. Sometimes I find the fantastical window displays a bit too overwhelming – I can’t find the actual bags to check out! Also this fits into the current minimalistic mood. Nice job Hermes!

    If that’s for spring, it looks miserable, like non-stop rain when everyone finally wants some sunshine. Where are the happy flowers and bright colors? Blah!
