Blogger Modelizing notes some risky business going on in the window of the Madison Avenue Hermes, where mannequins wrapped Jackie O-style in high-class scarves also sport distinctly '80s Ray-Bans. Is Hermes trying to attract McCarren Park pool kids, or has the Ray-Bans trend officially moved uptown? The windows also feature some sketches of frolicking male nudes who we presume represent the original Hermes, Greek god of travelers and flower delivery boys and fashionable French scarves.
