Visual Merchadising – Hermès

If you are passing by this window of Hermès shop in Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona you probably stop by because it caughts your interest. And then you might start asking yourself why a store like Hermès decorates their window with horses. What is the reason behind?

For those who are interested in finding out more here you go…

Thierry Hermés first established Hermès as a harness workshop dedicated to serving European noblemen. He created some of the finest wrought harnesses and bridles for the carriage trade. Back in the days people had only horses as a transportation. Hermès’s son, Charles-Émile Hermès took over the management and offered later leather bags, specially designed for riders to carry their saddles with them.

The story continues by adding more products to the portfolio over the years but the only thing that remains is that everything started with the horses.

Since the 1950, its logo is of a Duc carriage with horse.

Hermes 3And this brand strategy continues including the decoration in the stores and the window decoration.

So now you know the story behind about the horses in the window of a Hermés shop.

How to get a beautiful summer skin?

5 Jun

Do you want to look fabulous this summer? Do you want to have a healthy brown skin colour?

Then read this:

There are two ways that you should combine to achieve that goal:

1. Protect your skin with natural sun protection creme.

The two creams that I can suggest are from the brands Lavela and Dr. Hauschka. The reason why I always suggest to use natural sun creme is because it gives you the protection that you need and keeps your skin beautiful. The ingredients like plant essences and natural essential oils care for and stabilise sun-stressed skin.

Long time before using natural sun protection I got spots in my face and on my body when using other sun protection cremes. If you have this problem as well use a natural sun protection creme.

It is:

  • 100% free of  artificial preservatives, fragrances or colorants
  • 100% natural essential oils
  • good to your skin

dr-hauschka-sunscreen-spf20

You can find those natural sun protection products only in a Health Food Store or online.

2. Eat special food during the summer that helps you to develop a healthy brown skin colour.

Tomatoes, carrots, watermelons and olive oils are supporting your skin from the inside.

Tomatoes have special ingredients that make you more active, awake and protect you from the sun.

Carrots, watermelons and olive oils are good against wrinkles, sun allergy and sunburn.

With this special tips nothing can go wrong. Enjoy the sunshine and keep your skin healthy and beautiful.

With Love,

La Kukita
