Hermes are the purveyors of extremely good taste. They believe that "one should either be a work of Art, or wear a work of Art" which roughly translated means "you may be ugly, but if you wear our clothes, you'll pass". How quaint. Now they want us to eat our breakfast from their chic new range of tablewear. But what if we are ugly? Seriously, if you're getting married this year and you've got some well-off, well-meaning friends, why not put it on your wedding list. Prices start from pounds 30 for a side plate.
