You think elegance and chic are limited to some restrictions and shapes? Well, the Hermès spring/summer 2014 collection, closing Paris Fashion Week spring 2014, is especially there to break all the stereotypes. Under no circumstances will Christophe Lemaire leave the Hermès fans disappointed or dissatisfied within their expectations and the results they see. This collection is unique, it’s cool and it’s glamorous. At the same time, this is something you have never seen before. The word ‘elegance’ is imprinted on every single garment here, from shirt-pants and skirts combinations to manly suits and jackets.
The first detail that catches our attention as the models appear on the runway is the floral print preselected to be somewhat exotic and quite massively put on the apparels. The first step to chic is taken thus. The straight almost floor length skirt combined with a minimalistic and monochrome shirt matching perfectly with the former is already a huge jump on the way to perfect elegance.
The intriguing drapings and folding shaping the pieces are the signatures of the relaxed attitude underlying the concepts of the Hermès spring/summer 2014 collection. They are followed by those super-cool folkloric prints used as scrupulous and symmetrical design patterns. Finally, what awaits us at the finish is the manly suit paired with straight pants and being incredibly irreplaceable for creating the ultimate touches towards absolute chic.
What is especially spectacular about the pieces is that the majority of them is fastened by narrow and delicate belts adding a sprinkle of cuteness to the garments. Finally, it’s the colors that are worth mentioning, presented by some harmony of colorful and monochrome implications at the same time. The former is created for the design patterns, while the latter is intended for the minimalistic and fascinating looks of the glamorous apparels.
So, we have a whole successful expedition to the wonderful and breathtaking world of fashion and chic, guided by the Hermès spring/summer 2014 collection this time. Hardly will any fashioniser regret taking it with us. All roads lead to fashion!
