Hermes Spring Summer 2013
Christophe Lemaire of Hermes characterized this spring summer 2013 collection by the phrase “I wanted it to be both”. This collection by the high end brand Hermes features the clean-cut and edgy lines along with the bold patterns.
“I wanted it to be graphic and modernist, masculine and feminine but I also wanted to explore and express the richness of Hermes. Style is always a fusion. I want to shake it all up together.”
Behind these words Lemaire implies the sharp tailoring with the masculine feel, which is reached by introducing the square and angular cuts and the patch elements. Besides, the designer incorporates bold prints and graphics into the collection.
As for the accessories, designer complemented the trench coats and jackets with the large-scale belts and braces, which added the contouring effect to the free-flowing garments. By the way, Lemaire started working for Hermes only four seasons ago after the departure of Jean Paul Gaultier.
“I feel very happy and lucky and more and more comfortable. Not only is it a house of craftmanship, but also one of dialogue and an exchange of ideas which I think is very important for a designer.”
