Hermès Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris FW2014
Hermès-designer Christophe Lemaire ended Paris Fashion Week on a sophisticated note, with a lineup executed in the ultraluxurious vein the house is known for.
Lemaire surfed on many fall trends, most notably men’s wear via oversize coats and suits and textures boldly mixed in a variety of surfaces. There was an overall ease to the relaxed silhouettes, including the opening look, a chic gray coat over a white shirt and slouchy pants.
Standouts came with Lemaire’s play on the silk scarf. He worked it in unexpected ways — the back of a shearling vest, for example, or as the base of a silk-and-cashmere shell top shown with a decadent mustard-colored crocodile skirt.
This is Hermès, and so leather was key. Lemaire used it for a black draped dress and a dark green coat with an easy, sporty fit, among others.
