PARIS FALL 2010.............HERMES


I would be a master of understatement if I refer to the newest collection as divine. Mr. Gaultier infuses just a bit of his wit and charm into his collections for the revered house but he never dilutes the ultimate luxury and riches of the brand. The Fall collection is rife with extraordinarily y tailored leathers, sumptuous knits, enough crocodile to think there will be a world wide shortage and enough Kelly bags to make a devoted fashionista swoon. Nothing is spared and yet the chic of it remains that the clothes are discreet in only the best way. So maybe he strayed just a bit with the heavy handed mohair skirts but that is easily excused when you view the collection as a whole.
