Hermès Takes Us All to the Pinnacle of Luxury At Paris Fashion Week

At Hermès, luxury makes a quiet statement in a pared back display of unmatched craftsmanship and technical prowess. Can you expect anything less from Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski?

“What is beautiful must be useful,” wrote Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski on Hermès’s show notes this season. The message, simple yet so deeply resonant with the Fall/Winter 2020 presentation. And every other collection from the maison for that matter. Putting up a grand visual spectacle was not on Vanhee-Cybulski’s agenda.

The show set was stripped back to a Bauhaus-influenced display from which the models emerged – the aesthetic congruent to that of lipstick cases from the brand’s newly unveiled line of beauty. At Hermès, the clothing is always the main act. Nothing quite comes close to the level of craftsmanship and technicality on display at the heritage brand season after season. Hermès epitomises luxury. It is the kind of quiet elegance that might pass you by if you aren’t well-acquainted but if you know, you know. Vanhee-Cybulski is subtle yet powerful in her statements of affluence.

The impeccable cut of a soft, white leather trench; cleverly constructed turtlenecks with built-in scarf rings; silk skirts that are an expert display of pattern…it takes a keen eye to notice the nuances of the clothing. Always one to gallop at it’s own pace, this season was no different for Hermès. Seasonal trends don’t quite mean anything here. Instead, what Vanhee-Cybulski dishes is a wardrobe of timeless classics, you know, the sort you pass on to your daughter or granddaughter.

Which are the pieces you can see yourself wearing for the next conceivable five or 10 years? Let us know in the comments section down below!
