Portable is sending Susie Bubble Down Under for an exclusive series of talks in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne (antipodean friends hurry and get your tickets here!). Ahead of her Australian tour, we asked Susie to share her favorite fashion film with us, and she chose Hermes‘ documentary Hearts and Crafts. This is what she had to say:
“I’ve just watched Hearts and Crafts, the documentary on Hermes’ craftsmen directed by Frederic Laffont and Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat. Although it is officially sanctioned and funded by Hermes, what’s so incredible about this 47 minute documentary is the fact that not once is the name “Hermes” uttered throughout the whole film. You hardly ever see a logo pop up in the film either. It’s a really wonderful observation piece on the craftsmen in all areas of Hermes’ business — bags, saddlery, glassmaking, and silk printing. They all talk with genuine passion and for what they do and it’s also interesting how they all come from a diverse range of backgrounds too.”
