AW10 trend report: Hermes press day highlights

So Jean-Paul Gaultier is out at Hermes and Christophe Lemaire is in. I can’t wait to see what Lemaire does, I think he did a brilliant job at Lacoste. Here’s a glimpse of accessories from Gaultier’s final Autumn-Winter collection for Hermes (Lemaire’s first collection will be AW11)…

The poshest slipper-socks you’ll ever see
Fact: No-one makes a better riding boot
Belts for gloves? Naturellement!
Furry shoes are a major AW10 trend. MAJOR!
The Catenina bag – Hermes’ ‘stealth evening bag’
So Black – a new capsule range of bags with all-black hardware. Limited edition. ETA July/August… ARE YOU READING THIS VICKY BECKHAM?

The Constance in pink satin – my favourite
There was also a super-elegant long black cashmere and leather scarf with pockets (but annoying, the photo has gone walkies). Just the thing for covering up a minimalist black tie outfit and storing a Marlboro Light or two for those inevitable outdoor fag breaks
