After last season’s show at Le Bourget airport, Hermès landed at the Garde Républicaine for its Fall/Winter 2022 show, imagining a sensual collection that draws on dance and running costumes to envelop and exalt the body.

“I wanted to have a tight expression of what’s going on today, beyond the equestrian”, said Hermès’ artistic director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski. “It’s really about how do you translate classicism and sophistication and chic into the idea of a woman really assuming her femininity? The fact that sex is okay – it’s not something to be ashamed of”.
For this season, she worked in a black and white and earthy palette that was a refreshing break from the bright colors of the season. The designer again drew on the house’s equestrian heritage, namely the breeches and jodhpurs, as inspiration for sleek catsuits, curve-tracing tops with hardware details, leggings, and HotPants worn with thigh-high tights and over-the-knee boots.
Leather pieces had a chic modernity while outerwear was lush.
There was plenty in the way of covetable new accessories, too – belts with a cursive H buckle reminiscent of the beautiful horse harnesses from the Thierry Hermès workshop in Paris in the 1830s, the new 22 bag with a tough-looking zipper and a reworked mini Kelly with hardware askew “as if it were dancing”, said Vanhee- Cybulski.
