Private tour of Hermès “Harnessing the Roots” exhibition and Shang Xia
Hermès is beginning a worldwide tour of their “Harnessing the Roots” exhibition and it’s first stop is the Hermès Maison in Shanghai. The special exhibition focuses on the culture and heritage of the brand and covers horse harnesses and other equestrian equipment, referencing Hermès’ origins as a harness maker and demonstrates how these have influenced bags, garments and accessories throughout the brand’s 180-year history.
Mrs. Jet-Set will guide a tour through the exhibition and the stunning three-floor Maison discussing the importance of the store and the building’s long history.
We are also invited as special guests to tour Shang Xia. Backed by Hermes, Shang Xia is a lifestyle brand focused on preserving ancient Chinese handicraft. Shang Xia is widely considered China’s premier luxury brand and with only three locations in the world, it is a sight not to be missed in Shanghai. We will tour the store and hear about the unique artisans that create masterpieces for the brand and enjoy a cup of their exclusive tea.
