Slim d’Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique

Hermès 2016

Women's

Flowers emblazoned with colour, lush green foliage and dazzling plumage… Brought to life by infinite flecks of paint, the Slim d'Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique's mother-of-pearl dial is transformed into a true work of art at the tip of the artist's brush. So as to bring out the richness of the design, which is taken from a Hermès silk scarf by Laetitia Bianchi, a specialist in miniature painting applies some twenty layers of colour, with infinite care. Each layer must be fired at 90° before the next one can be added. A monument of patience, the dial is enclosed in a white gold case. Beneath it, another form of art, mechanical this time, takes the stage with an extra-thin movement made by Hermès.
