Inspired by classic record stores, Hermès launched the 'Silk Mix' pop-up in New York City. The experiential space takes the form of an art installation that would appear to be all about music—but at its heart, the designer label is giving consumers the chance to explore its luxurious materials.
Upon stepping into the Silk Mix shop, people are greeted with albums that are covered with different silk designs from Hermès. After a consumer has picked a favorite style, they are able to put the record on a turntable for an interactive experience. As Hermès describes, the experience is meant to convey that "the joy of selecting a scarf or tie is the same as that of playing a favorite record: chosen to match one’s mood, the weather or an encounter."
