Hermès taps into heritage and craftsmanship with digital launches

Hermès has launched a fun campaign through its Paris Mon Ami blog that engages with its fans while promoting the heritage of the company.

The ‘My Horse And I‘ initiative, encourages consumers to upload pictures of themselves with their favourite bangle or scarf alongside their equestrian best friend – be it hobby horse or real thing.

“Share your adventures, your friendships and your style,” reads the post dedicated to the search.

Meanwhile, the French luxury brand also has a microsite called Hearts and Crafts that provides an inside look at the making of its goods and those responsible for them.

10 employees are featured ranging from leather cutters to glass-makers, a jeweller and a colourist. Each one is profiled in a short video.

The site is based on the brand’s 48-minute feature film of the same name, created by Frédéric Laffont and Isabelle Dupuy-Charant. It was released in select theatres last year.
