Scene 4, Part 2

November 8, 2013 § Leave a comment

An hour into the lesson:

Trying to decide what happens to imperfect Hermès bags.

Much discussion around industry environmental regulations. Burning is not a legal option.

Leave class with a feeling that there exists some “Mecca of Hermès”, some nirvanic evolution of Chernobyl, wherein vast buildings shiver, filled to explosion capacity with pock-marked crocodile skins and saddle weaves with slightly flawed structural tension. Nuclear waste.

One day the Chinese will discover this mecca and unleash factory second Birkins into a hungry market, destabilising the very foundations of the French luxury industry with oversupply and flawed produce. Terrorism.

Conclusion:

Screw the environment. Burn the bags. Stay ahead of the Chinese.

Geopolitics. Serious shit, via Hermès.
