If you’ve never seen the windows at an Hermes flagship store, I would highly recommend making it a priority if you’re ever in New York City, London or Paris. The brand’s designers and merchandisers go to great lengths to make the visual presentation of the store’s goods captivating and unique, and the Paris store at 24, Faubourg Saint Honoré in particular has seasonal windows that are the stuff of legend.

Hermes Window Design Director Leïla Menchari has done a nearly magical job of turning displays of handbags and silk scarves into fantastical dreamscapes that sit right at the intersection of art and commerce, season after season, for more than three decades. Hermes recently uploaded more than 50 photos of Menchari’s Paris windows to its Facebook page, and we’ve got our picks for the best after the jump.

You can view the rest of the photos via the Hermes Facebook Fan Page.

    It’s amazing the mysterious taste of these windows…I love them, they are so full of energy and express the great value of Hermnès. I believe that only a hige brand like Hermès is could do this wodnerful window….Everything is put to concentrate the attention of the customer on the Hermès creations….
