When it comes to luxury, French brand Hermès is the definition of a quiet sort of luxury, and one that prides itself on craftsmanship and design. Unlike flashier counterparts that look to splashing logos across their items, Hermès let’s their design sensibilities speak for itself, with its signature quirky stamp a recurring theme through all their pieces.
For spring/summer 2018, creative director Nadège Vanhée-Cybulski designed a collection that is playful and attempts to redefine our reception on what is fresh and elegant today, here are 4 thing's we've learnt about the collection.
1. Classic bags get an updated new twist
Ever the purveyor of taste, classic bags like the Birkin and Kelly gets an update with bright colour blocks and graphic prints. Think of bright daffodil yellow totes with turquoise trim and clutches in saturated tones. And it’s not just the women that get to have all the fun. The men’s bags are a throwback to classic Americana sports like baseball and basketball, with quirky sports motifs running through the leather goods.
