Hermès has put on a fashion exhibit on Bond Street in England for the holiday season. The show lights up the fluorescent tubes shaped like craftsmen's tools, heralding the arrival of 'Petit h' in London.

The 'Petit h' exhibition adopts discarded Hermès materials and recycles them into new desirable objects. The show hones the Japanese idea of "wabi-sabi," where imperfections of nature are viewed as assets of beauty. Not only is the exhibition extremely creative, it identifies the problem of waste and provides a solution by creating something from nothing.

The exhibition follows a theme of red mahogany and white, showcasing bags and small leather goods. Each piece is an exceptional object that's distinct in its own right, portraying the company's spirit of invention and quality in execution.
