We cannot accentuate every time the fact that Hermès clothes and not only have that superior quality, in terms of material and execution and that this richness is always calm, never loud or garish and “packed” in that timeless, money- worth aura. Their aesthetic is very clean-shaped, almost monastic and enriched here and there with some details, like stitches or embroidery or house typical-prints. Brand´s creative director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski follows those roles. The big part of F/W 2016/2017 collection was accentuated on lightness with robe-like, loose silhouettes, composed by maxi cardigans with matching pullovers and wide-leg cropped trousers, pleated skirts, boxy-coats and pleated dresses, except the opening looks, that looked a bit more rigid with the quilted effect that was exquisitely made by embroidered stitching on pleated dresses, pants and coats. A true galore of mostly monochrome looks in colours like cream, camel, midnight blue or burgundy and made from a super-quality cashmere, wools, silk, shearling, jersey, satin and butter-soft nappa leather. I personally still miss Christophe Lemaire´s aesthetic in this French-lux house, but frankly Nadège is getting better and better from collection to collection.
