Low-key, youthful luxury, with neutral colours occasionally shaken up by injections of the classic Hermès orange.
Patterns and prints:
The French house is renowned for its prints, but they were almost entirely absent from last season’s black on black collection, save for a modest pinstripe. For SS15 Véronique Nichanian presented a line bursting with them, from floral and paisley to abstract watercolour and digital glitch. Despite almost always appearing together in the same outfit – patterned shirts were paired with printed trousers, then layered with a graphic jacket – looks remained understated rather than chaotic, a tribute to the expert design.
How it was worn:
With white slip-on skate shoes, sandals and leather cuffs. Updated silk bandanas were worn around the neck, in a new take on a classic print.
Last season, Hermès presented a leather-led collection, complete with a crocodile puffa jacket. See it below:
