Award-winning film and photo duo Metz + Racine present their original short film The Poet’s Dream for Hermès. In this piece, Metz + Racine envision the materials from Hermès’s latest collection coming to life as characters of their own. The elegant, unconventional and secret lives of these inanimate objects creates a narrative that is both humorous and inventive. Paying homage to Hermès’s classic French origins, Metz and Racine collaborated with three local puppeteers on the film. This dying craft allowed for the fluid and beautiful movement of the materials, giving them an almost lifelike characteristic. The Poet’s Dream was shortlisted for the Fashion Film Festival Milano in 2018.
