The Hermès Spring/Summer 2021 collection created by Véronique Nichanian was presented in an unprecedented online film designed with the artistic collaboration of Cyril Teste.
Set in the modern glass and concrete space of the house’s Pantin workshops in the north of Paris, the performance meant to capture the intimacy, action and mounting excitement that precede a fashion show.
The lineup was elegant, with ultra-light suit jackets in pale blues, trimly cut and delicately striped borrowed from shirts. To return the favour, shirts adopt a jacket-like volume.
There was a healthy dose of nonchalant cool in the form of loose trousers with the occasional pleat or gathered with drawstring waists and ultra-light bomber jackets and Windbreakers. This nonchalant attitude was also found in fresh and light materials where leathers were reinvented with finesse.
