No Embellishments Needed at Hermes Fall 2014 (Runway Review)


The Inspiration: Comfortable luxury.

The Look: Impeccably cut pieces made for particularly beautiful outerwear this season at Hermes. So beautiful in fact that no embellishments were needed. Luxury is at its best when it has an ease to it and this season's Hermes collection offered fluidity with each look. Silhouettes were relaxed making for oversized coats and suits with menswear touches. In keeping with that, pants were straight-legged and slightly slouchy. A number of looks including long vests, dresses and coats came belted with delicate thin crocodile belts. Rounding out the collection were softly pleated long skirts, long knits, tops and jackets with silk scarves worked into their design and languid leather dresses.

The Accessories: Chunky heeled strappy sandles worn with or without ankle socks and while the brand is best known for their handbags, there were surprsingly few on the runway; the ones that did make it into the show were relatively small and structured.

The Beauty: Side-parted and side-swept hair with a nude lip and light smoky eye.

The Takeaway: Luxury at its simplest and finest.
