Le Flâneur d’Hermès

8 January 2014

The true flâneur needs a suitable set of instruments and accessories, including a city bike: Hermès has filled the gap, with Le Flâneur d’Hermès and Le Flâneur sportif d’Hermès, seven-star bicycles in classic and sporty versions. Born out of a collaboration between Hermès and Time, a French bicycle manufacturer, it has a carbon-fiber frame with rear shock absorber, 8 or 11 gears and above all saddle and handlebar grips covered in bull leather. The classic version is white or anthracite gray, while the sporty version is also available in red. The effect is impressive, the price staggering and a suitable parking place required: it’s not a bike you can chain to a signpost in the street.

She has been writing about furniture for twenty years and is still not tired of it, in spite of everything. She has no free time, and is not even interested in it. For her it’s enough not to have to go to the same office everyday. She mixes with unlikely people, and contributes to Klat for this very reason.
