There aren’t many brands that can do contemporary classics as well as Hermès, and during Men’s Paris Fashion week the brand delivers a collection packed with timeless staples inspired by geometry and furniture design.
It seems like many designers have gone back to basics in order to discover the needs of a modern men within the codes of the house. The key thing for Hermès was to deliver complexity disguised as simplicity, whether it’s using an elegant hue of navy and injecting a print, or taking a leather jacket and playing with lines and volumes.
Luxury lies in the fabrics, craftsmanship and attention to detail – note the dragon pin placed on the collar of midnight blue blazer. The tailoring was sharp and elegant, as was the outwear, all in the colour palette of black, navy, grey and burnt orange as well a newly introduced ‘metallic H red’.
The use of leather was particularly refined, whether it was just a few panels on an oversized coat, or fully incorporated into wide leg trousers or a zip up jackets. As for spacious bags and shoes with bulky soles, it’s clear that this man likes to travel, and with a wardrobe likes this, who can blame him for wanting to show it off globally?
