Hermes is one of the oldest French high fashion houses and it is undoubtedly one of the most iconic as well, as you will see in this gallery of Hermes designs. Founded in 1837, the brand now specializes in leather, lifestyle accessories, perfumery, luxury goods and ready-to-wear clothing.

Its logo -- a horse and carriage -- has been widely recognizable since the 1950s and is still one of the most prominent fashion logos in current pop culture. Perhaps what Hermes is most well known for is its iconic silk scarves. The first one was produced in 1928 and since then, they have become something of a status symbol.

Hermes also creates incredible leather handbags, the most famous being its 'Kelly' and 'Birkin' bags. The Hermes Kelly was named after Grace Kelly, while the Birkin was named after Jane Birkin.
