Mood board: Clean, cool and simple to the point of sober, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski sent out her most cohesive Hermès collection to date. The designer worked on fine-tuning the most basic silhouettes in the fashion closet – long sleeved, silk pleat dresses, straight legged cropped pants, sleeveless coats and sleeveless body skimming flared dresses that she cut from paper thin leather and creamy cashmeres.

Best in show: The show simmered along at an even pace especially with the colour story that focused on neutral, navy, cream, black and shots of hot orange and red. The only decoration in this show was via lines that were drawn like black or red ink using a ruler around the curves of the body.

Finishing touches: A white soled running shoe is not what you expect to see from the makers of the most expensive handbags on the planet, but nonetheless Vanhee-Cybulski threw out plenty of them in electric blue or bright white. In terms of those famous bags, Hermès presented a rigid square bag with an extra long leather strap clutched like a handbag.
