Thursday was Hermes's annual beach party, and this year - was situated in no other than Carraigeworks! A little dislocated from the usual beach location, but we were all in for a surprise - in true Hermes style. We were welcomed by Australia's managing director and lead through mirrored art installations lit with prints and colours that were true of Hermes's scarves.
Dress code: Barefoot
Stated on the official invite, this would come to make sense as we were lead to a shoe concierge, floor covered with artificial grass, and later... the main room. Hermes brought the beach to Carraigeworks, and with zero flaws.
THANK YOU, HERMES
I couldn't help but feel like I was in a 80's beach party, glitz and glammed - Oversized floating inflatables, French waiters in vintage tees and spirtzin' faces, explosion of pastels and fluoro's, DJ set on a specially built diving board, a half pipe installed with skaters fresh from Bowlarama skating throughout the night, 180 curved projection screen with films cut from 80's James Bond to Blue Lagoon, watermelon cocktails, mini meat pies, sand shipped in from Perth (!!), the night felt like an endless fashion circus - only the best kind, with catered everything possible. This, including thongs for guests who didn't want to enter the bathrooms with no shoes (even though they were already lined with artificial grass). Every little thing that could've had a fault, didn't.
