Hermes has aced it once again — this time, with one of Paris Fashion Week’s strongest runway shows following the grandiose launch of the supercool Arceau L’Heure De La Lune double moon phase watch in the French Maison’s recent SIHH debut.
The latest Fall/Winter 2019 collection comprises looks laced with metallic undertones, stitched mythical animals and its signature lambskin leather. Menswear Artistic Director Véronique Nichanian has put aside the equestrian emblem, replacing it with the ferocious dragon (or some would say a dark pegasus).
But with Hermès being the epitome of refined luxury fashion, the Fall/Winter 2019 collection was rather pleasing to the eye (and senses) than having you cringing at the edge of your seat.
It’s a series of everyday clothing — staple pieces that you’d want to have in your wardrobe. This is exactly what Nichanian has brought to the table: a perfected collection of contemporary menswear that moves with ease and elegance, yet staying true to the integrity of the brand’s credo of rigour and fantasy.
The collection features rich dark accents of midnight blue, auburn and (precisely) burnt orange. Many looks came in deep shades of blue, as Nichanian anchored the ensemble with a sexy mix of materials and textures. Run down the fashion almanac and you’ll find every style and cut — from trench coats to puffer jackets, leather shirts to sharp blazers — each polished and fit for style-hungry spornosexuals. Here are our top picks from the collection.
