    The Passage: Voyage through the Link of Universe

    _Artist vitrine for Hermés flagship store in Panama City, Panama
    _100th year anniversary of the inauguration of Panama Canal
    _The opening of a third set of locks

    The inauguration of the Panama Canal in 1914 meant a great deal more than the opening of a passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans: It actually signified the “shrinking” of our planet, since it facilitated closer contact between continents to the benefit of exploration and trade among nations. With this event, nothing was ever again as far away as it had been before. In short, the Panama Canal was (and is) the key to empowering and expanding the great human adventure, long before the term “globalization” came into vogue.

    The Panama Canal celebrated the centennial of its opening in 2014. This anniversary was underscored by the opening of a third set of locks, which once again changed the face of the world by permitting passage of ships with greater tonnage, thus encouraging greater shipping trade than ever before.

    Hermés Panamá, the brand’s flagship store on the Isthmus of Panama, located in the Multiplaza mall, recently presented its theme show windows entitled “The Passage: Voyage through the Link of Universe”, specially created by South Korean artist Jong Hwa Duly Lee. With this presentation, Hermés pays tribute to the contribution of French construction work to the Panama Canal and joins in the celebration of the canal’s one hundredth anniversary.

    Each window was designed to represent a scene from the voyage of a “Post-Panamax” class ship known as “The Orange Horse” across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, casting off from the French city of Saint Malo and passing through the Panama Canal.

    Striking a parallel with the rite of passage that crossing the continent through the Panama Canal signifies, the voyage that the artist portrays in six show windows provides a link between Hermés and the Canal, with the great human adventure as a common denominator.

    And that is an adventure with which, by its own experience, Hermés is more than familiar.
