Pierre Hardy

Pierre Hardy shoes 
are elegant architectural constructions that play with geometric volume, bold pattern, and colour. Perhaps more than fashion references, he is inspired by art and artists, with a penchant for minimalists like Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, and Sol LeWitt. As well as his own label, Hardy is designer since 1990 of the shoe collections of France’s oldest and most emblematic luxury label, Hermès, and since 2001 
of its jewellery collections too. More than ambition, Hardy’s elegant and idiosyncratic career 
seems propelled by pleasure, inspiration, and 
lucky encounters.
