Paris…Hermes

In a luscious display of textural fabrics, outerwear was the key element at Hermès. Taking cues from their famed handbags, a crocodile bomber jacket was trimmed in fur. A double knit “blanket” coat covered a lamb’s fur pencil skirtwas accompanied by an actual blanket, rolled and tied to a leather strap, crossing the body in preparation for unexpected landings. A playful rendition of the famed Kelly bag was debossed and embellished with its quintessential elements of dangling straps and lock-and-key closures. Notched collars were embellished with fur on ankle-length coats in backed cashmere and leather. Menswear styling carried over onto tailored trousers; feminine looks were created with leather minis and over-the-knee suede boots. Aviator caps complete with goggles unified the looks.
