PARIS — It’s a collection made from leftovers — very preciousleftovers. Petit h, the Hermès little sister line founded by the luxuryhouse’s creative director Pascale Mussard in 2010, on Thursday opened apermanent space in Hermès’ Left Bank boutique on the Rue de Sèvres here.
A modular system of wooden cleats and brackets inspired by thehouse’s well-known mosaic patterns greets visitors at the store’sentrance. Thought up by creative agency RDAI, they can be individuallyadjusted to hang up, put down or attach objects, depending on their formand function “because I never know what I am going to work withtomorrow,” Mussard explained, while giving WWD a private tour of the newpremises.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
