Hermes

URBANE ALPINE
Paris: Veronique Nichanian’s latest collection seemed to riff on a common theme at recent shows – the intersection of outdoor interests and elegance. Like other Parisian shows, Carven and Louis Vuitton, this Hermes collection combined adventurous alpine elements such as retro-ski sweaters and hiking boots, with the most sophisticated of double-breasted suits. Some items, like a beautiful astrakhan bomber jacket seemed to be at home in either world, as did the collection’s primary colors of navy, granite grey, cream, and olive. Though this collection featured no groundbreaking ideas, it fit perfectly into Hermes history of subdued elegance and high-end wearability. —Andrew Luecke
