Paris Menswear: Hermès Autumn/Winter 14Read moreRead more
Recognised by their iconic orange packaging and their much sought-after scarves, one of which is sold somewhere in the world every twenty five seconds, Hermès is one of the finest purveyors of luxury in the world. (Mid-century case in point: the Queen wore Hermès on a 50s post stamp.) Established as a harness and saddle maker in 1837 by Thierry Hermès, today the house is renowned for its leather goods, most notably the Kelly (Grace) and Birkin (Jane) handbags, although it’s still deeply rooted in the equestrian world. Christophe Lemaire, who succeeded Jean Paul Gaultier who succeeded Martin Margiela, has designed the brands womenswear since 2010, while menswear designer Veronique Nichanian has created sophisticated ‘clothing objects’ for the company since 1988.
