Hermès S/S 2020 Paris Fashion Week Women’s
Mood board: A host of emerging designers are harking back to the era of 1990s minimalism this spring. It’s clear we need a cleaner more pared-back wardrobe, to withstand today’s head spinning digital era. No one can master this silhouette better than Hermès Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski. There’s little more luxurious than a simple silhouette in the finest Hermès-honed fabrication. Like a vest top honed from the softest khaki suede with exposed white stitching, or woven in the finest mélange knit. The back was a sensual focal point of Cybulski’s spring offering, and alluded to the aprons sported by its artisans. Her pared back, sleek shapes were imagined in tones of rich chocolate, caramel, crisp white and vanilla, and included oversized leather trousers, patchwork pinafores, and waist defining tuxedo jackets with skin-flashing racer backs.
Best in show: A knee-skimming tan shift dress featured a sharp flounce of leather pleats, and had square, skin revealing laser-cut panels at the waistline. A fluid dress had a conservative cape silhouette face on, but a seductive and sporty racer back.
Finishing touches: Flat sandals were formed from graphic straps of leather and the most luxurious take on the summer bag was proposed. Forgot a weaved or raffia basket bag for the beach, Hermès’ version is formed from ovals of laser-cut leather. §
