Hermès sat patiently waiting in a cramped temporary space in the shadow of the Buckhead Atlanta development for years. The Parisian heritage brand has finally gotten its cornerstone store, customized right down to the Greek key pattern framing the windows. A two-story domed rotunda beaming with natural light greets shoppers, followed by plenty of room for its colorful scarves; leather goods; glass display cases twinkling with watches and jewels; and posh equestrian goods, including boots, bridles, and saddles made just for you and your steed.
