Runway Report: Hermes SS19

It was a day at the races during Hermes’s SS19 show. Models decked out in equestrian-style garb took to the runway showcasing looks which were both wearable and desirable. A palette of neutral shades such as marl grey, tan, dark eau de nil, signature orange, tomato red, almond, and steel made for an active, Summer range.

A tanned leather midi skirt with suspenders was paired with a black vest and chunky noir sandals, followed by a Hermes orange, rain jacket with leather buckled collar and cuffs, and heavy-metal detailing. Accessories were out in full-form ranging from multi-optional bucket bags with leather piping and short handles, to fold-over hobo totes and square paneled shoulder bags.

When we think of Hermes, we think of silk scarves, bangles, and belts, but the SS19 range begs to differ. And just like we are off to the races with a mighty fine closet.
