Even the most fanatical lovers of haute couture may not know the relationship of the iconic fashion house Hermès with Greece, specifically with Aegina! The president of the modern Hermès who made the house a dominant player in the field of fashion worldwide, Jean-Louis Dumas and his Greek architect wife Rena Grigoriadis, who passed away in 2010 and 2009 respectively, loved our country. For this reason, the two together with their children, Sandrine and Pierre-Alexis, chose the beloved island of Argosaronicos to build their summer residence. In fact, Dima's last wish was to be buried in Aegina.
