Maison Hermes Dosan Park
Hermes’ fourth flagship store in Tosan Park, Sinsa-dong, southern Seoul, this past Weds, November 15th.
Hermes International CEO Patrick Thomas said the company selected Seoul to launch its newest flagship store because South Korea is Hermes’ fourth biggest market in the world _ after Japan, France and the United States, respectively _ at a press conference yesterday.
Maison Hermes Tosan Park, a cube-shaped building with a copper silkscreen façade, consists of four floors. La musee-Promenade, a retrospective on the company, and book cafe Madang are situated in the basement, the first and second floors are the shopping area and the third floor is Atelier Hermes, an exhibition area. – The Korea Times
WOW! And I thought that the UNIQLO SoHo Flagship Store was very big, take up to 35,000sqft, but the Maison Hermes Dosan Park is double the size, approx. 77,450sqft! AMAZING, their invitation included a cowhide leather planner for their guests (wish I was there!) and check the limited edition items for the Dosan Park store…envious, I want that 1of1 Hermes Birkin Bag!!! I’ve never been to Korea before but DEF want to check this place out when I visit! More pics after the jump…
