Hermès opened in Abu Dhabi

Hermes Abu dhabi

On May 2nd, 2012, Hermès celebrates the opening of their Abu Dhabi store, on the second floor of Etihad Towers in the Al Ras Al Akdar beachside district. RDAI, a French agency responsible for the architecture of all Hermès stores worldwide since 1978, has overseen all the work necessary to capture the spirit of the Parisian House, in the 295 m2 store. Each entrance opens onto matching ex libris, set in the mosaic floor of linen, red and white tiles, familiar from Hermès flagship Paris store at 24, rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. Initially, visitors encounter the Silk, Perfume and Leather areas, with, Hermessence and Perfumes situated between the Silk universe—whose mirror-finished panels sandblasted with a horizontal-striped pattern are the perfect foil for Hermès’ carrés, while at the same time reflecting the floor’s mosaic pattern, extending and softening the space—and leather craftsmanship, with Equestrian separating the latter from the Men’s Ready-to-Wear, which leads on to Jewellery and Watches, nestled opposite the Women’s Ready-to-Wear. The Art de table universe is central to the store, as it would be in any elegant home, and is graced by a chandelier, and the modernist lines of Jean Michel Frank’s furniture.
Last year, Hermès extended its presence in the Middle East and opened a new store in Kuwait City. 2012 will be remembered for the birth of the third location in the United Arab Emirates: the new Hermès store in the Etihad Mall.
