One of our favorites from Hermes, stunning Craie. Craie, which is the French word for chalk, is one color that has the ability to change asphalt pavements into infinite canvas art pieces. Created for the 2013 Autumn Winter collection, Craie is a predecessor of a great variety of light colors by Hermes, such as the chic Pear Grey, Parchemin and Beton which was recently created for the 2013 Spring Summer collection.
