My expectations were understandably high having received the invitation to the Hermes private screening of Hearts and Crafts. From our arrival at the State Theatre, the perfect venue, to the beautiful French Champagne and canapé there was an air of excitement.
This exquisite film was all about the people that make Hermes (yes the beautiful handbags, scarves and jewellery for which they are most well known) and did truly portray both the passion of the craftsmen and women and their very fine skills. The film was directed by Frederic Laffont and Isabelle Dupay-Chavanat and filmed in a number of the locations where the leather, silk, silver and glass are handcrafted with heartfelt dedication.
Above all else was the films spell binding photography and soundtrack. You could have heard a pin drop. I have to say this took promotion to a whole new level. What a magical occasion!
