Spring in the Hermès

Hermès pumped out over 100 pages of publishing perfection and fantasy for its spring catalogue.  Photographer Tim Walker takes us into a world where we can fly by baguette or hot air balloon basket...where giant snails and a tribesman take over a Paris flat...and where hay makes a perfect facade.

The African in the drawing room on the fender seat is stunning. Sounds like a line from Alice in Wonderland.

I just got mine for free at duty free in Geneva (it was all I could afford). Bet they have 'em at all the stores!

I have always been a fan of Tim Walker but find some of these images faintly preposterous.

The problem with too much success, you start to become a parody yourself. I fear Walker has peaked now.
