For a bit of sunshine in your life every single day, look no further than the new Soleil d’Hermès tableware collection. From La Table Hermès, the storied Parisian luxury design house’s tableware division , the new collection is as elegant and stylish as it is cheerful and radiant, with an uplifting, sun-kissed aesthetic drawing heavily on art deco styles, introducing a splash of joy into everyone’s kitchen. Featuring 24 pieces, which together comprise a full range of Western tableware, the Soleil d’Hermès collection showcases streamlined, geometric designs depicting stylised palm fronds and flowers, alongside other graphical, abstract patterns that recall forms from nature . They are picked out in a deep sunshine yellow, outlined with the most delicate of black lines, against a background of pure porcelain white. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face – and impress even the most demanding of dinner guests – the collection is as good a representation as you could hope to find of Hermès’ overall 2022 theme of “lighthearted”, an approach we could all do with taking more often in our lives. How to buy your own Hermès handbag – top tips from a collector Among the specific pieces, just the plates alone illustrate the range of engaging variations found in the designs and the thought that has gone into them. Dinner plates come with a delicate interlocking pattern arranged around a white centre in a doughnut shape. Then there are two styles of dessert plates: one in an even pattern throughout, and the other with graphical elements arranged in a circle. The bread and butter plates blow the first of these approaches up to a much larger size, while the tart plates resemble the second, but with a fringe around the edge. On the pasta plates and soup plates, meanwhile, patterns appear just around the edge; while on the presentation plate, a pattern is subtly expressed in pure yellow. The collection also features round and oval platters; breakfast, coffee and tea cups and saucers, as well as two styles of mugs; a teapot and a creamer; bowls in three sizes, plus an additional small salad bowl and sugar bowl; and a small tray. The Soleil d’Hermès collection is the work of renowned illustrator and designer Arielle de Brichambaut, working alongside the brand’s skilled artisans, under the direction of Benoît Pierre Emery, creative director of La Table Hermès, an acclaimed figure within the world of design who is also a renowned art director and fashion designer. Hermès shocked with a glam rock autumn/winter 2022 menswear collection This is the third collection that De Brichambaut has designed for Hermès tableware. She previously created the Balcon du Guadalquivir collection, decorated in red arabesques and fleur de lis-like patterns heavily influenced by Moorish aesthetics – specifically the wrought iron gates that ornament many homes in the Andalusia region in the south of Spain. She also designed the deep blue Bleus d’Ailleurs collection, for which she turned her attention to Chinese influences, abstracting them into a series of geometric lines and tessellating patterns.
