Let’s Dish, Shall We?

Birkins and Kelly handbags aside, Hermès dishes out (pun intended) some of the world’s most coveted fine china. And the French Maison’s recently launched thoroughly modern tableware collection, Rallye 24, is certain to rev up one’s engines compliments of its racetrack (yes, a racetrack) inspiration and graphic design. The Hermès’ emblematic anchor chain got a facelift and is playfully reworked as a motor speedway with its straight lines and oval corners. Vroom!

The six color options recall vintage racing-team hues in glossy automobile-style finishes  in gray, yellow, green, red, blue and black. Hints of metallic and satin finishes rev up the sartorial speed as well. In the driving seat for design and conceiving shapes? Hermès’ artistic director of decorative objects Benoît-Pierre Emery and Rotterdam designer Damian O’Sullivan.

Think mix and match, too. The comprehensive line includes plates, bowls, cups, platters, a vase and a teapot. Available in 17 interesting shapes — such as ovals, oblongs and squares — the Rallye 24 set offers a staggering 756 possible setting arrangements. With two years in the making and a phenomenal end product, the race is on!
