Paris Fashion Week: Hermès Spring/Summer 15
The last goodbye
For his final Hermès collection, Christophe Lemaire, who is departing after four years to focus on his own label and the iconic fashion house welcomes fresh blood, confidently defined his tenure at the house – with an edit of sophisticated, luxurious clothes.
It's location was the l'Orangerie Férou in Paris' Luxembourg Gardens, and the runway was a bed of desert sand, with the backdrop of a large Hermès orange curtain.
The looks that walked it had meticulous attention to detail including a mixture of exotic skins for jackets to a lace-and-eyelet pattern on a pretty white dress.
In its most part, the colours were a rainbow of sunburnt shades, in keeping with it's desert; and perhaps indicating Lemaire's departure riding off into a sunset? Either way, it was pure elegance across jackets, coats and dresses with an oh-so subtle tribal touch.
Lemaire's last look was the big wave au revoir to the brand... A beautiful summer halter dress in same tone as house's iconic orange box.
