HERMES - OF HEARTS AND MIND

I was commissioned to design Hermes UK Summer windows the Theme for the year was The Hermes Dream. I took the theme and thought about it as a celebration of one mans bravery to follow his instincts. We are often, as humans, told that our physical reaction to a situation is the most honest. This window plays on this idea of instinct and how one should trust how you feel in your heart and mind as the ultimate guide. I used the emblems of the brain and the heart to represent where we process our hopes and dreams. These positive emotions manifest themselves as heat in the body so I wanted them to be represented as light in the window design; this coloured light tells the story of how we navigate ourselves through ideas, decisions and dreams. Colours are often used to represent different feelings so I have researched this and taken what I feel are the core values of The Hermes Dream and used these in the window.
