Hermès has come out with the ultimate well-dressed gentleman’s accessory – a valet stand in solid mahogany, fine leather and brass with ebony detailing.
The luxe piece is a limited edition re-issue of a classic item created for Hermès in 1930 by famed French decorator and designer Paul Dupré-Lafon.
It features a calfskin hangar for a suit, a calfskin tray for one’s watch and cufflinks, a mahogany shoe rack, and brass hooks and rods for ties, belts and braces.
The Arceau wristwatch imagined in 1978 by Henri d’Origny lends itself ideally to a pocket-watch version.
Its asymmetrical attachment and its lugs naturally invite a cord-strap fixed to the arch like a stirrup leather to a stirrup, thus evoking the saddle- and harness-making origins of Hermès.
Whether in a trouser or jacket pocket, the manner of wearing the Arceau Pocket further accentuates the innate classic chic of the original watch design.
