The first Hermès store in China opened in 1997. Since then, more than twenty stores have satisfied the Eastern faithful clientele with a passion for beautiful objects. September 15, 2014 was the date of the opening of the first Maison Hermès in Shanghai, in the historic Middle Huaihai Road, following the establishment of other stores in Paris, New York, Tokyo and Seoul. The combination of the lively spirit of the city and the historical heritage of Huaihai Road area was the guide for the choice of location. Through its composition in brick, stone and wood, the building connects the historical and the contemporary. This is a house in which the client is expected to pass the time pleasantly. Its spacious and soft lighting create a welcoming environment in which the diversity of the brand is expressed.
