menswear collections: hermès, fall

by Jeremy Danté

véronique nichanian presented the Fw11 hermès menswear collection in paris today. simple styles walked the runway & overall, the collection failed to produce any inspiring forms of fashion. use of leather was the headlining element of this collection, as familiar style strolled the runway we seen david agbodji, paolo roldan, eryck laframboise & marlon texeira among the shows cast. the collections bags were the highlight of the set, as we spotted an oversized birkin bag in black with silver hardware. use of color was seen as bold shots of blue, yellow & maroon were added to the classical palette. the hermès label is known for sophisticated design & refined quality, both of which were seen, but little to no modernization was felt. a leather jumpsuit was seen which slight shook me up as i wondered what story this collection was struggling to tell. the usual set of coats was seen in the form of blazers, leather & trench style but overall, the collection was nothing special- void of inspiration.
