Hermès Rallye 24 
The new Rallye 24 series from Hermès (800.441.4488, usa.hermes.com) brings an auto-racing-inspired motif to the table. The French fashion house’s delicate porcelain takes a bold turn in the 49-piece collection, which has been designed by Benoît-Pierre Emery, artistic director for La Table Hermès, and is priced from $70 to $1,250 per item. Each of the pieces, from the salad, dinner, and dessert plates to the serving vessels—platters, teapots, and more—features interlocked-oval patterns that recall the shapes of racecourses. Rims and other elements display the colors of classic racing liveries.
