Hermès Carré Club I Hermès

The Hermès Carré Club in Paris

29 November to 8 December 2019 at the Carreau du Temple

Free admission, booking required

Under the glass roof of the Carreau du Temple, Hermès presents a multiform immersion in the world of silk. This vibrant exhibition plunges visitors into the imaginary world of creation and joyfully celebrates design in all its forms.

At the Carré Studio, the centrepiece of the event, visitors can meet our artists, watch them work in real time, and share in their passion. In Carré Stories, the scarf has many a tale to tell; at Carré Cut, collectors, enthusiasts and the simply curious can learn the art of scarf knotting; while others can watch skateboarders weave their magic on the Carré Park ramp. The Carré Café is the place to take a break, with live music and discussions on the theme of design; Carré OK invites visitors to sing along to some well-known tunes, while Carré Click captures the moment for posterity.

Practical information
29 November to 8 December 2019 12 noon to 8 pm open until 10 pm on Thursday and Friday evenings Le Carreau du Temple, 4 rue Eugène Spuller, Paris 3rd arrondissement
