Les Vitrines d'Hermes by Leila Menari
Here at MONC XIII we turn to our favorite books again and again for ideas and inspiration. Here you will find a select group of our favorite new, vintage and one-of-a-kind book sets to add inspiration to your life. Whether it's decorating, cooking or diving into a novel from one of our favorite authors, these books have the MONC XIII stamp of approval. The original French version of the book and since most of the attraction lies in the gorgeous images, not knowing the language isn't much of an issue.
The attention and resources Hermes devotes to its extraordinary windows is legendary. Leila Menchari is the high priestess of these seasonal transformations, and nothing really compares to the results, a remarkable fantasy mix of art objects and very high-end wares.
The book is done as luxuriously as the windows it portrays, with huge photographs that give a great sense of her creative process. It is the best of coffee table books, delivering new delights with each visit.
