As part of their Fall 2011 collection, Hermès has teamed up with graffiti artist Kongo for his first commercial collaboration to produce several silk scarves based around his signature tag style. Kongo’s graffiti is not only found on the walls of Paris and France but also in New York and Hong Kong; and while graffiti prints are not a novelty in the fashion world, it is surely a big step for the artist.
Part of the proceeds going towards graffiti collective Kosmopolis which supports young artists.

Finished in the XVIIIth century this old house now is the home of MUMEDI (Museo Mexicano del Diseño – Mexican Musem of Design), with collections of the most avant garde mexican designers.
