The Ready-To-Wear collection presented by Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski for Hermès re-explored leather across cuts and colour.
From its equestrian routes in the early 1800s, Hermès has always been revered for its luxury leather goods. And as Creative Director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski presented her Autumn/Winter 2019 Ready-To-Wear collection at Paris Fashion Week, she took the French fashion house back to these early roots.
From lamb skin micro shorts in chocolate brown to black leather skirts and honey-toned calf skin, the tough fabric ruled the runway show. The most extreme looks came in the form of biker jackets and pencil skirt combinations, and the most subtle in coat pocket and collar detailing.
Adding more depth, however, Vanhee-Cybulski worked the leather look across a range of colour palettes. Midnight black, chocolate brown, sandy beige and burnt orange leather was put to work.
Elsewhere in the collection, oversized pockets, thigh high boots, and stud-embellished details played into the looks. Dresses were modest in cut, incorporating silk textures to balance out the tougher fabrics.
