Hermès Spring/Summer 2024 – Paris Fashion Week Men’s

June 29, 2023

Every once in a while, amidst the clamor of new trends and experimental aesthetics, a collection arrives that sings a sweet, seductive song of taste and elegance. The Hermès Spring/Summer 2024 collection is such an instance; a symphony led by the creative genius, Véronique Nichanian, who paints a picture of cerebral sensuality that captures the essence of masculine allure.

In the heart of Paris, on a day flirting with summer heat, Hermès’ menswear emerged as a paragon of impeccable style. It was not the audacious flamboyance that often tempts the runway, rather a meticulously crafted and undeniably sexy collection, weaving a story of the sublime and the sensual that reflects the pinnacle of French savoir faire.

Challenging the stifling, outerwear-dense summer lineups, Nichanian’s Hermès collection embraced lightness in both form and fabric, a sultry promise to the wearer’s skin and an enchanting spectacle for the onlooker’s eye. From sheer cotton shirts woven like a delicate lattice to jackets sporting a chalky, almost ephemeral finish, the collection invited wandering eyes to a feast of fashion.

Indeed, a fashion journalist noted the collection’s decidedly cheeky shorts, cut from cotton, linen, and lambskin, were “very short“. Nichanian, ever the visionary, agreed, proclaiming the beauty of the male form and presenting a high-hemmed liberation to men’s fashion. In the age of evolving gender norms and fluid fashion, this bold move echoed the essence of equality. After all, legs were in abundance on the Hermès runway.

Yet Hermès, the titan of timeless taste, transcended beyond the play of sheer fabrics and high hemlines. The collection featured pants, tightly held with double-strap stirrup belts that echoed the brand’s renowned watch straps. The trousers flowed seamlessly from hip to mid-ankle, offering a peek at the high-soled sandals, adorned with serge strapping in black, cream, and brown. Later iterations saw the pairing of calfskin upper with soles etched with rubber studs – a harmonious marriage of form and functionality.

In Hermès’ world, the allure of accessories is unending. Among the standout pieces, the Haut à Courroies bags in brown and marine-touched gray, boasted a whimsical sun-faded shadow of a name tag and padlock stencil. The burgundy iteration was a flirtatious wink, threatening to cross the borders of fashion ecstasy.
