Hermes je ne sais quoi

If I had to use a single word to describe Hermes Spring/Summer 2016, as challenging as the exercise would be, I would definitely choose "pure": for pure quality, pure luxury, pure beauty and pure magic. It was not just a special collection, but the one out of fashion, competition and time. The way the clothes moved was enchanting, but also made it easy to forget a kind of skill it would take to achieve the lightness and the execution of each piece. 

Ironically, any fashion show made of more than 30 looks gives me a feeling of tiredness and monotony. With Hermes, I could not get enough.

The Spring/Summer was inspired by the brand's codes - a square scarf, a saddle, the classic prints, but made modern, minimal, clean and airy as a result of clever chemistry, a formula combining the shapes and the colours mixed or layered upon one another.

I loved the first little black dress, so minimal and utterly perfect. I thought that the shoe strap living the life of its own was absolutely genius because it would allow a woman find her own perfect spot for placing it (and don't we just all know the effect of a shoe strap - half an inch that can absolutely change the visual shape and length of our legs!). The other pair, a combination of clog and sandal - a shape which happens to be one of my ultimate favourites, was just as gorgeous (and I later spotted a similar design at NLK DNM- new-old trend, perhaps?)



And then there were the pleated dresses made of yards of pleated silk that gave such a sensation of flight, joy and subtle sensuality as the girls walk down the runway. Perhaps, this is what "allure" would look like when embodied in fabric.

It was absolutely unforgettable... A fantasy that may never come true, but will never stop me dreaming of either.

P.S. For what it's worth, if those trainers never made it back to the runway, I would not miss them for a second, not in a million years, not now, not ever.

  3. Based on the description, I expected to love this collection, but in fact I didn't feel as strongly about it as I thought I would. I loved the solid black looks, but otherwise the pieces, while lovely, weren't among my favourites this season. But that's the fun of fashion week - the way that one collection can affect people so differently!
