‘Notes To Myself’

Hermès

Last week, I met a lovely woman (in the elevator at Bergdorf’s) and it turned out that we have numerous friends in common. When I pulled out my agenda to jot down her email address, she commented that I was “old school”. Despite having a website with a shop element, when it comes to notes and dates, I keep a diary.

Which is why I love the above image. This beautiful story, from the Hermès SS15 catalogue, was photographed by Vincent van de Wijngaard and styled by Camille Bidault Waddington.

  • I can’t even begin to express how this entire catalogue is perfect. The fashion is perfect, the photography is perfect, the vibe is wonderful… And nothing wrong with being old school, I am as well !

  • Lovely.
    What diary do you carry in your bag for notes?

  • “Old school” is the only way! If it isn’t written down in my agenda, it doesn’t exist, as far as I’m concerned.
    (BTW, my agenda is Hermes.)

  • I still like the idea of having a hard copy, be it a journal, notebook, or address book. I can remember, not THAT long ago, when attorneys in court would consult their Day-Timer or an actual calendar to check their availability for a future date. Now you would look like you had no business being there! LOL. Imagine getting in a car to drive somewhere new without a gps (which I do love)! How did we survive? Amazing what has happened technology wise in such a short space of time.

  • Yay for leather (Hermes) agendas and old schoolness. I’m the same. Love these pics too.

  • paper agendas, a good old library book, personalized pads of paper….I love being “old school”!

  • I am jumping on this bandwagon! It was a beautiful editorial, the photos were quiet and made me calmer just looking at them. My niece just bought a letterpress and trained in bookmaking (not to be confused with gambling) and calligraphy. I think the technology backlash has begun. Hermes got it right.

  • Well, seems there are more “old school” girls here;) Me too, Mont Blanc “One year of my life”…
    Best regards!
