The Hermès Kite Festival took place at Sunset Beach View, Jumeirah, Dubai last weekend. The French luxury brand is known for its silk scarves, they transformed their scarves into flying objects. We have seen some of their well-known scarves like “Plumets et Panaches”, “Robe légère” and “Sur mon nuage” taking over Dubai skies. All the creations were from the women’s and men’s collections.
The festival was very colorful, visitors can choose to take a seat and enjoy the beautiful kite/scarves pieces among the clouds or they can choose to join the workshop. The workshop teaches individuals or groups who want to create their flying objects from technical fabric printed with scarf designs in beautiful shapes within an hour, then they learn how to fly these kites. The kites were described as dancing ballerinas in the air.
The first Hermès kite festival took place in Indonesia in 2022 and then it came to Dubai. After its stop in Dubai, the festival is traveling the world heading to China, South Korea, and Argentina next. The festival needs to be seen around the world, it’s such a beautiful experience with Hermès.
