Hermès Spring 2014: On Safari
It seems Christophe Lemaire has figured out a direct line to the hearts of his customers: his Spring 2014 collection for Hermès is simply an offering of beautiful clothes crafted spectacularly from the most luxurious of materials.
But what else can one expect from the house that refuses to use anything but the best of the best? As far as theme goes, this show was a very comfortable safari. Guests were greeted with trays of warm madeleines, and the backdrop consisted of dresses and coats in rain forest floral prints, trench coats in greens so dark they were almost black, and a pair of culottes that looked perfect for a stroll in a tropical clime — or at least they would have if they weren't made of crocodile skin.
