Perhaps “every major retailer” won’t be flocking to fill their stores with the latest offerings from Hermès especially because it’s not “collectible (yet doesn’t ever lose its value value)” but is WEARABLE ... if you can afford it!click image to enlarge
Some I’m sure will say the collection is a yawn but I found it to be relaxed true to its DNA and that some of the underpinnings might have been quite “fashionable” and not necessarily a la Hermès... in a good way!

The collection was knit and outerwear dense with some wonderful sweaters and lots of outerwear for those who actually buy clothes to wear and not stare at or be stared at when wearing. Whether or not you recognize the Swedish army officers coat of the 70s translated into the Hermès vocabulary is inconsequential as those pieces are quite refreshing in a way. The silhouette is relaxed, unpretentious, neat and of course classic and timeless.click image to enlarge
It wouldn’t be Hermès unless there were a few incredible croco pieces and this season did not fail to disappoint... after all which would you want... a varsity/bomber from Hermès or the same style from Vuitton in red... with or without the bee keeper’s baseball cap that is sure to only increase in value on eBay?click image to enlarge
So, the question is, point blankly, do you want clothes to stare at or to be stared at when wearing or simply clothes to wear!click image to enlarge
