GQ: Ten coolest things to do in London this week

GQ, October 12, 2020

Hermès has a legendary status that very few reach in the realm of fashion. Its bags are considered by many to be works of art in themselves, and of course there are those who appropriate them as canvases for their own art (remember the Kanye West bag?) Omer Tiroche Gallery in Mayfair is presenting Hermès bags alongside artworks by some of the most influential post-war artists including Warhol, Fontana, Christo and more. The exhibition highlights the similarities between the bags and artworks, emphasising the parallels between a unique work of art and the exclusivity of a hand-crafted Hermès bag.
