An ancient Paris Convent was the setting for the Hermès Men’s Fall 2018, featuring a runway that wrapped around a courtyard lit by fire drums that the models had to walk through. Bits of ash blew into the crowd as the models passed by. This “Game of Thrones”-inspired setting was the perfect backdrop to contrast an incredibly refined and super-luxe collection by Creative Director Véronique Nichanian. Known for doing effortless French style with a super-luxury delivery, this show was one example of utter perfection.

White top-stitching was used as a graphic element on items including baggy blue workwear-inspired pants and a hooded shirt in denim-coloured lambskin. Baseball stitches appeared as decorative accents on a beige lambskin coat and Bolide Ball calfskin bags.

The graphic elements are always present, like the house’s trademark Chaîne d’Ancre maxi links in a black chiffon crocodile jacket inlaid. This season Véronique Nichanian proved that even she is not immune to the siren call of the street wear.
