Hermès’ Spring Ease – Languid elegance is how one could describe Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire’s spring-summer 2014 show presented during the final day of Paris Fashion Week. The silhouette is one of ease, with no fussy embellishments or volume added. Clothing for the tropics served as inspiration for the new season with colorful prints, menswear inspired shirts and slouchy pants. There was also a focus on leather in the form of long coats, suit jackets, belts and of course bags. Compared to other shows this week, the Hermès woman can almost be described as minimal but she is definitely far from bland.
Foile de Soie – Appearing in the spring-summer 2013 catalogue from Hermès, American beauty Karlie Kloss works a wardrobe of colorful scarves in these dynamic studio images shot by David Sims. Styled by Beat Bolliger, Karlie shows off the fluidity of silk with her graceful movements and strappy sandals.
Autumn Leaves – Hermès’ advertisements always seem fall into the fantastical if not whimsical category, and the French luxury label’s fall 2012 campaign is no exception. Captured by Nathaniel Goldberg, model Bette Franke leaps across a setting of autumn leaves in a grey cloak and leather boots for the new season.
The Work Out – Giedre Dukauskaite shows off her swimsuit body (and routine) in Alexandre Weinberger’s latest beauty work for Madame Figaro shot on location in St Barts. Styled by Julie Gillet, Giedre wears sporty looks from the likes of Eres, Hermès and Givenchy in the sun-drenched images. On beauty are hair stylist Alessandro Rebecchi and makeup artist Regine Bedot with tousled locks and flawless skin.

Hermès’ Relaxed Fall – Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire took a turn from spring with a Gaucho, South American influenced collection for the label’s fall 2012 showing. Loose-fitting designs such as heavy ponchos, coats and suit jackets steeped the latest outing in relaxed staples. A muted color scheme paired with leather gear and fedora style hats bring a masculine touch to the new season. Lemaire ended on a colorful note, introducing eclectic patterns and prints to the demure showing.
Hermès’ Spring Cover-up – For spring 2012, Hermès designer Christophe Lemaire provided cover-up for the hotter months with loose-fitting silhouettes, lightweight separates and arm-baring tops. A definite change from Jean Paul Gaultier’s vision for the luxury brand, Lemaire dressed the Hermès woman in billowing gowns and drapey pants. Color came in the form of electric blue, deep mauve and citrus orange.
For his first season as Hermès creative director, designer Christophe Lemaire made his mark with a more wearable and relaxed collection than seen from his predecessor Jean Paul Gaultier. Slouchy easy shapes inspired by turn of the century fashion were a fresh turn for the label. The show ended on a bright note, with models donning teal and citrus hues.

After seven years as creative director, Jean-Paul Gaultier presented his final collection for Hermés on the last day of Paris Fashion Week and did not disappoint. With an equestrian themed show packed with leather bodices, riding crops and hats, the spring collection proved to be a mix of sexy, elegant and inventive with an abundance of menswear inspired pieces.
