The classy and chic Hermes spring/summer 2015 collection came to put a memorable end to yet another Paris Fashion Week and this year’s fashion month in general. Actually, it also puts an end to the career of Christophe Lemaire as a creative director of the luxury French fashion house, as he wants to thoroughly dedicate himself to his own fashion line now. “Working for Hermès has been a great pleasure: a profoundly enriching experience on both a human and professional level. I am proud of what we have built together. My own label is growing in an important way and I now really want and need to dedicate myself to it fully,” Lemaire stated as he announced about his departure. So, no wonder, the new Hermes spring 2015 rtw collection was a highly anticipated one to be unveiled at PFW this year and everyone had been eager to see a stunning show, as it always is with Hermes fashion presentations!
On a sand-covered Lemaire sent a lightweight and relaxed collection, “out of the shadows, into the light”. An enchanting understating elegance was coming out of each and every look demonstrated, which made the entire collection so pleasant to the eye and so easy to wear. Slightly slouchy and oversized, textured and sporty motifs could also be felt, although elegance and refinement were the focus of the collection. Modesty was expressed through below-the-knee lengths, dresses, shirts and jumpsuits that never flashed skin. Everything looked highly proportioned and harmonious, classy and modern.
The neutral color palette chosen is one of the aspects that make this collection so versatile. We saw lovely cream, beige, white and sand hues, which were later joined by navy blues, mustards, dusty pinks and some reds. The majority of the looks presented were into a monochrome mood, however, the finale of the show also presented some graphic geometric patterns, including stripes and spring’s popular checkered patterns.
Wrapping up in style was literally the message of the Hermes spring/summer 2015 collection, as we saw many looks inspired from scarfs. The elegant wrap skirts and wrap dresses are other proves of the statement. There we saw a beige below-the-knee wrap dress with its one end handing freely from the neck of the model. The same style philosophy was applied to a charming mustard blouse, which was coming matched with slightly oversized tailored pants in cream.
Delicate pleats, draping and layering are other motifs describing the new Hermes collection. Some of the looks were adorned with big straps of fabric used as belts, which quite resembled sweaters tied around the waists. The show also demonstrated stylish and sophisticated separates and textured straight dresses, which all adhered to the main style philosophy of the collection.
In terms of the accessories showcased, the Hermes spring/summer 2015 collection brought stunning platform heeled sandals, as well as iconic Hermes bags and clutches. Overall, it was a timeless collection, extremely laidback and luxurious, the garments of which you can wear everywhere and anytime!
