Affiliates of ABC toured the very private collection of the Hermes family at their corporate headquarters on rue du Faubourg St. Honore. The Hermes collection stems back to artifacts from Marie Antoinette and Napoleon and running through the Belle Epoch of nineteenth century France to the present. From Napolean’s travel chest trimmed in gold leaf and inlaid leather, to an Hermes riding outfit borrowed by Jean Paul Gaultier for one of  Madonna’s fashion shoots, this collection houses some of the most exotic items of nineteenth and twentieth century France.
