"time exists only after the world has existed" are the words of saint ambrosius. in other words, does it mean that time did not exist before creation? it's an interesting suggestion. but for me, at least for our personal time, i prefer to think this way. that is, every time you do or feel something, each time begins, and when the next takes over later, if they make an effort, it will be reflected in it. i prefer to think of it as such a thing. enthusiasm is the key to everything. a certain time begins. in that context, i think that in life, we should always set the goal of improving quality. that is why the salesperson may say "please come again" to the customer and say goodbye with a gentle hope. that is why leather craftsmen may be able to comfortably let go of the newly completed handbag after the last stroke. that's why silk scarf designers may be watching the original colors dry out on the workbench until late at night. at the end of this wonderful century, hermès wants to take you to the space between heaven and earth, to the world of stars this year. let us guide you to soar lightly to the point where the sky is high and the earth is surrounded by a haze like a white halo, showing a lush and truly proud appearance. we believe this year is a great opportunity to pay homage to the messenger of the gods, the god hermès, who is also the name of the company. hermès is the god who kicks in the air with a feathered glow and takes off from the mountain of olympus to act as a bridge between humans and gods. like me, if you have doubts that the universe will continue for countless hours and begun to sense that the scent of hawthorn influences the movement of the constellations, open "le monde" and you may find one or two reasons to turn anxiety into conviction." (translated from japanese)
