Show Review: Hermès Spring 2013
By Faith

The name Hermès is practically synonymous with luxury and sophistication; the brand stuck to its signatures for Spring 2013. Christophe Lemaire presented a wearable collection of separates and the fashion house’s coveted handbags in rich shades and prints that sometimes felt more autumnal, save for some florals. Though not always cohesive surprisingly, the offerings were still strong, serving up the silhouettes that the loyal Hermès customer would expect, as well as some fun and flirty designs that might attract a whole new set of stylish women.

Mixed textures were the look du jour, with leather, suede, and silk all playing together on several looks. Prints were plentiful and beautiful, uplifting easy shorts and cropped trousers, red carpet-ready mini dresses, and a variety of blouse silhouettes.

Crocodile anyone? The exotic skin gave a luxurious flair to simple v-neck “tees” and shorts, giving a whole new meaning to the idea of basics.

The pieces in the collection that stood out most to me and made the biggest impact were the menswear-inspired and utilitarian ensembles. Expertly-tailored suits for the office or a cool spin for cocktail events, a shirt dress boasting shoulder flaps and exposed pockets, a trench coat that seemed to be picked from the front lines of battle in 1940: these are the designs that have continued to set Hermès apart and will continue to do so if Lemaire expands upon them.

What do you think?

    I love this collection. So sophisticated, but every. single. piece. would uplift an everyday ‘fit.

    Overall love the collection, but the printed pieces just don’t sing to me

  3. Okay, the facial expression of the first model is uncomfortably creepy! Lol, definitely bad timing. This collection is pretty, love the fit! I will be honest though, I’m completely over this shade of mustard yellow that keeps popping up! Death to mustard yellow. >_< !
