Designer Pierre Hardy is receiving a highest honor iin France. Hermes artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas will present the award at a small ceremony at Hermès flagship in Paris.
“Actually, I’m the one receiving the honor, but the reasons for which I’m receiving it are not just about me,” the designer told Vogue.com. “It’s a little too much because my work is hardly a solitary endeavor. I’ve been working with the same people for a long time—they’ve become friends, so this gives me the chance to share it with them, too.”
