The story behind

A harness is the name given to all the elements that go together to attach a horse to a carriage. This complex piece of equipment includes many buckles. At the end of the 1970s, inspired by pieces preserved in the Émile Hermès collection, Françoise de La Perrière designed a composition called Bouclerie d’attelage, thus paying homage to the original trade of the house’s founder, the Parisian harness-maker Thierry Hermès. In a modern take on the original design, Bouclerie d’attelage has been stylised and simplified, favouring flat tint areas and boldly drawn outlines to emerge anew as Bouclerie moderne.
