Timeless chic: Hermes Spring 2010

25/06/2013

Hermes Spring/Summer 2005
One of the habits I acquired after moving to England is the need to watch Wimbledon. Of course, I’ve done it in the past – I just never experience the itch that seems to appear in June these days.

I blame Federer. And Nadal. They are my favourites, the charismatic Gods who are passionate about the game and make it beautiful. I watch the match for the sake of seeing those two. I never played tennis myself, nor really felt the need to learn – anything of the running kind isn’t my thing.

Obviously I try to mark the start of every season with a blog post. The one before was about tennis-inspired fashion editorials and today’s story will be about collection that I will love for as long as my mind marbles allow me to.

Every time I see these looks I wish Gaultier never left Hermes. He had such a gift of capturing the effortless elegance and discreet luxury whilst inspiring and teaching the mere mortals like myself how to use and blend the simple colour palette, feminine shapes and modern accessories and create something absolutely stunning, unforgettable, flawless and timeless.

  1. Wimbledon is not my favourite tennis tournament (Roland Garros and the Australian Open are), but I watch it any chance I get. My favourite players are also Nadal (I love his dedication, hard work, fighter spirit; too bad he lost in the first round now) and Federer (for his finesse and for the fact that he's made an art of playing tennis), two true champions.

    I wish Gaultier didn't leave Hermes either. I love the sporty chic look in this collection.

  3. I love the outfits, never really cared much about tennis - sorry love. In-fact never really cared much about watching any sport - I'd rather watch photographers in action, penguins, interiors or something random like that ha ha. Anyhow, I SO get these clothes - FAB Natalia, and I hope you get your fix with those chaps - they are Gods.

  7. How interesting! I never got into tennis, but I would imagine that would change if I lived in England too. These really are effortlessly beautiful designs.

  10. Although I never ever watch tennis (I don´t watch TV or sport events in general) your post is so inspring that I want to wear immediately at least on of this great outfits!

    I would like to wear white and white much more, but here in our region this is difficult because the weather is often not really good and the ways which I have to go during the day dirty and wet ...

  15. I got the passion for tennis from my parents and this is one of my favourite sports - both to practice and to watch! Yesterday's match with Murray winning in the 5th set was amazing...I loved this post celebrating Wimbledon, certainly one of the most elegant tournaments around! Caterina
