For its first physical runway show since the onset of the pandemic, Hermès presented a new post-Covid relaxed elegance in the courtyard of the Mobilier national in Paris.

In spite of a light rain, guests were there to applaud the return of Véronique Nichanian, Hermès men ready-to-wear designer, on the live catwalk.
In contrast to the gloomy weather and a handpicked audience in waterproof black capes by Rains, her collection for the luxury Parisian house is a real breath of fresh and chic air.
“Lightness, relaxation, and freedom”, stated the show notes. In this men’s wardrobe, with its gentle colours (celadon, carbon, pink, greige, chocolate brown, faded rose), chic and nonchalance, the collection was energised with fluid and generous shapes and stitching graphics.
We thus find loose cotton poplin shirts in the house’s historic “Mors” and “Gourmettes” prints, cropped jackets and high-water trousers, zip-up blouson in a technical fabric, reversible bi-material parkas, double waistcoats in Toilbright – a waterproof fabric developed by Hermès – and summer-ready shorts.
Accessories included belts made of rope with hook clasps and “H” buckles, sandals and suede goatskin ankle boots, as well as bags in military canvas.
