On September 30th in Paris, Hermès unveiled its Spring 2024 womenswear fashion show, guided by the visionary leadership of Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski and her talented team. They presented a captivating collection that was a true ode to chic minimalism and refined luxury.
Here are five standout highlights that made us love the Maison even more:
١. THE SPACE
In the historic Garde Republicaine nestled within the heart of Paris, Hermès ingeniously recreated a delightful meadow, beckoning the audience to immerse themselves in the vibrant tapestry of a spring in full swing.
Transported to an enchanting scene, one couldn’t help but feel like being at an impromptu picnic, where time flowed gently and conversations meandered like a serene brook, with the absence of life’s constraints for a moment.
What added to the allure was Hermès’ admirable commitment to environmental stewardship, as they pledged to replant all the plants used for the show’s decor, exemplifying a beautiful act of circularity and respect for nature.
This immersive landscape, a masterpiece in itself, served as the harmonious prelude to the exquisite collection that awaited.
٢. THE COLLECTION’S DETAILS
The level of intricacy and craftsmanship in this season’s collection was truly exceptional. Notably, the tailoring at the back of some of the looks – giving a sporty feel – displayed an unparalleled attention to detail, setting a new standard for precision and refinement
We also loved the incorporation of the iconic Hermes silver logo on the short dresses. This creative choice proved to be a masterstroke, endowing the garments with a timeless elegance and sophistication that lingered in memory.
The collection also spoke to a younger generation with its accessory selection, notably the striking Rouge Hermès bag featuring the new chain. This piece, in particular, emerged as a captivating statement accessory, leaving us all eagerly anticipating the opportunity to make it our own in the coming season.
٣· THE COLOR PALETTE
The color palette presented by Hermès this season was a breath of fresh air, a welcome departure from the pervasive monotony of black-on-black ensembles that dominated the runways throughout the season. Instead, Hermès introduced a captivating array of monochrome looks, skillfully orchestrating a symphony of shades encompassing the understated elegance of gray, the timeless allure of navy blue, and the rich, seductive tones of bordeaux. Each hue was meticulously curated, resulting in an ensemble that was not just stylish but undeniably chic.
٤· THE SOUNDTRACK
If you haven’t already, we strongly encourage you to watch the show’s video all the way through and savor the music. It’s a remarkable selection that orchestrates a gradual crescendo, guiding you along the Hermès journey as the models grace the runway.
٥. THE GUESTS AND THEIR PURSES
Last but certainly not least, our standout moment at the Hermès show was our adoration for the diverse array of guests in attendance. From the youthful trendsetters to the seasoned fashion aficionados and those gracefully in between, everyone exuded a profound sense of chic sophistication, wearing their most coveted Hermès treasures.
It was so great to witness an assembly of these exquisite pieces firsthand, pieces that we typically see only on pictures, and rarely IRL. This meeting of Hermès connoisseurs created a true fashion moment, a testament to the enduring allure and timeless beauty of the brand.
