Hermès takes Manhattan

Hermes AW24 New York Theo Werner

My SS24 trend report picked up on the major appetite for leather, and of course Hermès comes top of the leather lust list.

Hermès just showed the second ‘chapter’ of its AW24 collection in New York – a seductive, cinematic portrayal of wearable-yet-sexy (for straight-laced Hermès) leather trousers, jumpsuits, outerwear and abundant Mapplethorpe-esque caps that some thought dominated the show, but I rather loved. (Once a stylist always a stylist.)

Dior paid a similar tribute to Manhattan recently – although slightly less well received. Anyway, expect to see variations on the black leather jumpsuit, mariner caps and voluminous jackets flooding the market, not forgetting the all-important Hermès Kelly pocket belt. And if you can’t commit to those, there’s always a silk Hermès carré, folded and tucked into a skinny leather belt.

Take some inspo from these examples in the wild – I will… (more…)

Celine AW24: retro-modern minimalism plus a lipstick line

Celine Winter 24

Still a bit gutted that Hedi didn’t end up at Chanel. Ah well, Celine’s gain. Nothing crazy new to see here but his brand of retro-modernism for Winter 24 (just teased in a film) looks contemporary and cool – yet surprisingly un-grungy – in the way only Hedi’s can. (more…)

Quote of the day: Vanessa Friedman on why fashion matters

Vanesa Friedman on personal style

“It’s a gesture of respect for yourself and those around you. The momentum has been building since the world emerged from pandemic isolation, cycling out of comfort clothing into confusion, tugged toward the allure of the recent FX series about Capote’s “Swans,” and the erstwhile rituals of dress. Remembering what it means to construct the public self.”
