Top 5 accessories we spotted at the Hermès Men’s RTW Fall 2021 show that we loved.

The advantage of a digital presentation over a physical runway is that you are able to pause and focus on details like never before. After a closer inspection, we present to you accessories from the Hermès Men’s RTW Fall 2021 show in Paris that piqued our interest. From the retro backdrop of the French government building Mobilier National to clothes with an inside-outside philosophy that create a off-kilter collection.

Shot by director Cyril Teste, the digital film showcased a bustling staircase filled with preppy students casually interacting and moving around the structure. As rare as it might be for a woman to design a men’s collection, Hermès’ artistic director, Véronique Nichanian has been doing it successfully for almost 30 years. A laid-back collection with zip-front jackets, biker inspired parkas, cardigans with zipped high collar and T-shirts with H quilting, drawstring joggers and more. The colour palette is a muted array of purple, ochres, tan, teal, mustard and grey but with a hint of freshness via touches of bubblegum pink, canary yellow and aquamarine thrown in. Browse through the pieces that are worthy of an investment.

Any Hermès collection is never without its fair share of equestrian imagery or elements, and the delicate horse charm pendants at the men’s show captured that essence. Crafted in palladium metal are galloping into the new season.

Candy-colours namely, ‘cumin, flyin, H red and frost blue’ served as the base for the sophisticated clunky sneakers from the house of Hermès. Made of knit and calfskin leather with rubber soles, the subtle inclusion of the signature H into the leather detail made for an interesting detail. Paired with lambskin track pants and cardigans, this cool casual uniform deviated from the brands more formal codes yet captured its very essence.
