Paris: This season Hermes continued to do what it does best, taking classic ensembles and selective trends and elevating them to the next level with unexpected, but no doubt luxurious, materials. The classics were shown with 2SB and 6DB fine wool suits coupled with tweed topcoats and shearling-lined leather overcoats. There were cashmere turtlenecks and sweaters and impeccably tailored trousers. Enter formal jogger pants to remix suiting looks, formalized wool bomber jacket, pinstripe cashmere sweatshirts, and crocodile leather zip-up hoodies. The label continued their covetable leather bottoms and pushed forward with ponyhair and short pile fur versions. Another take on the familiar was the leather cardigan robes embroidered with a fair isle pattern. – Matt Feniger
