Pierre Hermé Paris
Their first shop opened in Tokyo in 1998, followed in July 2000 by a Salon de Thé in the Tokyo Disney shopping area Ikspiari.
In 2001, Pierre Hermé returned to the gourmet scene in Paris. Immediately, the pastry shop at 72 rue Bonaparte in the Saint Germain des Prés area scored a big success. Every day, enthusiastic gourmets rediscovered pastries, macarons and chocolates, with connoisseurs from all over the world flocking to this temple of sweet delights. In 2004, a second shop featuring very innovative interior design opened at 185 rue de Vaugirard.
In early 2005, the latest concepts from Pierre Hermé Paris were launched in Tokyo: a “luxury convenience store” and a Chocolate Bar. Both are located in the Omotesando district, where the biggest fashion brands and companies operating in Japan have stores.
Like some fashion designers, he creates themed pastry seasonal collections twice a year- a spring/summer collection and a fall/winter collection.
In 2011, Pierre Hermé Paris has eight sales outlets in Tokyo, one in Osaka, nine in Paris, one in Strasbourg, two in London and an online boutique www.pierreherme.com.
