Hermés has opened a new shop in shanghai called shang xia. the interior was created by famed architect kengo kuma and the brand is run by shanghai designer jiang qiong'er. the walls and ceiling of the shop are draped with a shape-retaining, hexagonally cut cloth that gives an airy, cloud-like feel. the rest of the store is minimal but rich, displaying delicate porcelain teaware, capes made of cashmere felt, and fine jewelry. what's not to love?...as usual.
