Hermès is never much about trends. Nor is it about story telling (besides the obvious horse riding references of course). Yet what you can rely on every single season is a collection of beautifully made fashion classics. Hermès is all about suede and leather and f/w2016 will be no exception. Yet what Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski added were the loveliest and cosiest cashmere and wool pieces. Like a grey shaded full cover dress worn with just a small black belt (the absolute winning look of the collection, be it not even that outspoken). Or a chunky grey sweater/coat paired with some cropped pants. Not a touch of bare skin in sight (naturally you’d think when it concerns a winter collection, yet some of last week’s shows beg to differ), still those fully covered models breathed a certain sexiness. What a waistbelt and a pair of glossy boots and chunky heels can do.. The color palette changed from that typical Hermès brown to navy, burgundy and green. We spotted some diamond patterns and a selection of small stripes as a few statement accessories failed to really make an impression. A solid yet subtle luxurious collection fit for a French fashion house with so much heritage.
