Greek makeup artist Gregoris Pyrpylis will lead the development of the French luxury house’s beauty division. He will report to Agnès de Villers, president of Parfum & Beauté and will work under the supervision of Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of Hermès.
“We take a crosscutting perspective to creating objects for Hermès beauty,” said de Villers. “As an expert in the colours, textures and gestures that express and elevate beauty, Gregoris’ talent will be a driving force for Hermès Beauty.”
Hermès launched cosmetics in March 2020, adding lipstick, then powders and nail polish to its fragrance lineup.
After a year of mask-wearing, all signs point to a comeback for makeup. But like most sectors, the pandemic has reconfigured the category.
