Hermès Men's RTW Fall 2010 / PFW-Day03

With the label’s first men’s only flagship opening next month on New York’s Madison Avenue, men’s wear designer Véronique Nichanian upped her game, making sure the Hermès man will have plenty of easy, elegant options to make an impression in the Big Apple next fall.

First came a slew of sumptuous blue, gray and brown jackets, in cashmere flannel or dip-dyed wool seersucker, which were paired with narrow slacks in equally tactile fabrics, such as cashmere, corduroy, or velvet.

Knitwear followed but didn’t play second fiddle. A trompe l’oeil V-neck in charcoal grey and navy cashmere was chic and loaded with character.

Nichanian then mined younger territory with hooded sweatshirts, biker blousons and a blazer with a bright orange lining, which were head turners.

The closing note was an impeccably cut double-breasted suit in navy wool and mohair. “Laid-back sophistication,” the designer said in her program notes. Spot on.
