Hermès Spring Summer 2013

Meh. I’m on the fence with this Hermès collection, there were some great basics and a very interesting colour palette, but on the other hand, the print mixes were atrocious and the silhouettes lacked distinction. I also feel that Christophe Lemaire is trying to incorporate too much leather in the collections, just because it is Hermès doesn’t mean there can’t be woven fabrics, too. Anyway, who cares. Hermès has never been and never will be about clothing.

I love…

a very simple, bold look. This is what I expect from Hermès.

this beautiful little jacket and Hermès’ chic version of chaps.

bold colour statements.

I loathe…

some dodgy print combinations. Although the prints would look great on their own.

skinny ties and voluminous crocodile shorts. I’m not digging this.

pajamas on catwalks. Why are we seeing so much of this?

    Thank you for the review. JPG’s take on Hermes apparel was interesting and elegant. And then this guy who designed for Lacoste took over. It’s doomed for disaster.
