Girl About Town | Hermès Mens Celebrates Music, Fashion and Art With “Silk Mix” Record Store Installation

Silk scarves and ties were the centerpiece of the night.

Hèrmes Mens transformed their Fifth Avenue flagship into a record-store themed party to celebrate “Silk Mix,” a temporary art installation featuring the brand’s iconic silk scarves and ties. Crates of records featuring music played during their men’s fashion shows over the years were on display on each floor, along with artful patterns of silk scarves and record coverings.

Guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and cocktails inside the store, which was padded in sound absorbing foam, like you’d find in a recording studio session. DJ Patrick Vidal got the party grooving; notable guests included Hermès CEO Robert Chavez and Alex Assouline. The party favor included an authentic record named after the installation, encased in custom Hermès artwork. 

Girl About Town had a fun night out with the boys. See below for exclusive pictures.
