Hermes is one of my favorite brands, though due to the limitations of my wallet, I typically have to worship from a safe distance. I received these two orange boxes as a gift and I love them – they have a beautiful hand poured, lacquered finished and are the exact same shade of Hermes orange. I placed one of my own Hermes boxes on the bottom to complete the trio.
The boxes are velvet lined on the inside. Now the question is: do I need a third one to go on the very bottom, or should I keep the little real Hermes box I have on the bottom stack below? My decorating skills are close to nil.
Also a side note: did you know that during World War II, a shortage of materials forced Hermes to use the only paperboard available – which was orange? Prior to that, boxes were cream and mustard colored.
