Hermes limited edition sari line
"Hermès admires India and has a lot to learn from India." So says Patrick Harris, chief executive of Hermès International. Indeed. The patterns and mix of colors (often colors that you think wouldn't work together) found in Indian saris would be an inspiration to the French luxury leather goods maker known for its "beyond classic" silk scarves.
Now Hermes has launched a limited edition collection of saris for the Indian luxury market. At $6000-8000 a sari, I can see only Bollywood stars (and some uber-rich) being able to afford it. While I think that this picture is intended for fashion spreads only, no self-respecting Indian woman would go without a blouse!
