Luxury Brand Hermes Considers Metaverse As Means To Communicate

PARIS, France – Hermes is considering using the metaverse for communications although the maker of Birkin bags and other luxury goods remains focused on craftsmanship, Executive Chairman Axel Dumas told shareholders on Wednesday.

‘We are curious and interested’ about the metaverse, he said, adding it could be a good communication tool.

At Wednesday’s annual shareholder meeting, executives signalled plans to maintain a long – term view for production and other strategies, after family shareholders voted to clock 54% of Hermes capital, held by the holding company H51, until at least 2041.
