1970s geometric prints in mustard shades in an otherwise predominantly white collection full of layering.
The look This was the debut collection for Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire, who stepped into the pretty big shoes left by Jean Paul Gaultier at the luxury house. Lemaire introduced 1970s geometric prints in mustard shades in an otherwise predominantly white collection full of layering.
Key pieces Cream, tobacco and black kept the palette simple with a splattering of yellow and orange. Leather was key and was used with aplomb when cut into tapered trousers, which were then tucked into leather boots for a 1980s silhouette. Long capes were also important, as were trench coats.
Commercial appeal This collection was a resounding success for Lemaire, and exuded the luxury in keeping with the French label’s handwriting. The geometric print stood out in tobacco and mustard shades.
