Recently, Petit H in Paris, Hermès’ experimental studio space, opened “La Quincaillerie”, a store that showcases some of the most artistic, quirky tools you will ever lay eyes on. Staged by designers Stefani Di Petrillo and Godefroy de Virieu, La Quincaillerie is an experience more akin to an art gallery than your ordinary tool shop. In keeping with Hermès heritage, all the tools on display are a testament to excellent craftsmanship and are made out of the  finest materials. Nails,  measuring tapes, and compasses may seem like basic objects, but Hermès has managed to elevate these common products in such a way that you can use them as you please for either functional or even purely aesthetic purposes.

Many of these pieces are being displayed at the Paris boutique at rue de Sèvres until February 17th. Have a look at La Quincaillerie and grab your supplies while they last!

Features

The Toolbox is a longstanding silhouette in the Hermès collection. First launching in the 2010 Fall/Winter collection, the Toolbox is a structured, top handle bag with both utility and style.

Much like the Kelly bag, the Toolbox features a turn lock closure. It’s a great option for those seeking a spacious bag, as the wings on the sides extend to create a roomy interior including three large pockets. In addition to the ample space, you can carry this bag with ease either by hand or over the shoulder with the adjustable and removable strap.
