Hermès showcased a wonderful menswear collection this Saturday at UNESCO, designed by creative director Véronique Nichanian who has been at the helm of the house for 35 years. The collection was an ode to sporty elegance and natty nonchalance, featuring a range of necklines and collars, from funnel necks to hybrid peacoat/donkey jackets. The tailoring was impeccable, with wide leg trousers paired with expansive double-breasted jackets, and grand trenches, swish nylon dusters, and shaven fur blousons. The color palette was dark and the materials noble, yet novel, such as calfskin, sheepskin, cashmere, technical satin, rubberized lambskin, and spinnaker canvas. There were also embroidered and stitched sweaters and twin sets, as well as tractor tire boots. The collection was the epitome of modern, classy, and distinguished style, and well out of the range of most young men. Nevertheless, it is the best in menswear today.
