Hermès Spring/Summer 2011 RTW

At the same time Sarah Burton celebrated her beginning, Jean Paul Gaultier gave us one last show at Hermès.  It's obvious that Gaultier has done the label well, and I am very sad to see him go.

Spring/Summer 2011 dug back to Hermès' equestrian heritage, complete with harnesses, and gave us a show worthy of any equestrienne.
Not only were there riding outfits, there were also some wonderfully tailored leather jackets.
And for evening, it was simple black and white.
The rave, however, has got to be the use of transparent crocodile skin.  I can't believe it's possible!
With a collection that celebrates the heritage of Hermès, as well as Gaultier himself, one begins to wonder how Christophe Lemaire will fare taking Gaultier's place.  It may just be me, but I don't see the switch from the sporty, preppy label Lacoste to the well-respected, luxury brand Hermès being an easy one.  Having said that, Gaultier caused many raised eyebrows when he took over at Hermès, but he's proved to us he has what it takes. I suppose we'll have to wait and see if Lemaire can do the same.

  1. I'm amazed from the great quantity of comment that you leave on my blog wow!! I'm a young, 15 years old, boy from Milan if you'd like we can chat together (sorry for my english...) because I'm new on blogger as you and however I think and see that you really love fashion (as me) but not the love for fashion that's locked only into "gucci, armani and Vuitton" but something more...

    This is my e-mail: fashiondoesntexist@live.com

    But don't take this comment as a "stalking message" or something similar please :) if you'd like to chat of fashion I'll be pleasant, if you wouldn't liek there'll be no problem bye!!


  2. You're 15, really? Even I didn't have as much knowledge in fashion when I was 15 as you do now. And yes, there is a definite difference between "that" kind of fashion, and what fashion really is.

    Thank you! I would love to keep in contact, and I will continue to follow your blog.

  3. I'm really happy and I spend a lot of time to know the fashion world in the best way possible for me... THank you for everything :)
