Hermès Spring 2011
When I think of Hermès, which is definitely one of my favorite brands, I think of soft earth tones and hints of color that are consistent throughout. Fortunately the picture I have when I think of Hermès wasn’t at all wrong for this year’s spring collection. Looking at the show, which presented numerous coats, jackets, and blazers, reminded me of a soft breeze accenting a beautiful summer day. This metaphor being not only the mental reaction I got from watching the show, but also something that was expressed through the fabric and color choices. Being that this is summer, in order to wear coats and other outwear, the fabric would have to not only be comfortable and light, but strong enough to protect from the unpredictable weather patterns we sometimes see. What we saw in this collection was just that, making this presentation strong enough for the modern macho, but versatile enough to help express a softer man.
