The Hermès Woman Is No Fashion Victim-------
Hermès pulled out all the stops and then some for its “All About Women” event here in New York last night, creating tableaux vivants showcasing the house’s many métiers. Our favorite was the bangle bar, where models with stacks of Hermès bracelets on each wrist dispensed flutes of bubbly. (You can read more about the installations in our party report.) Earlier in the evening, creative director Christophe Lemaire’s Fall collection, originally shown in Paris back in March, got a repeat performance. In this video, airing exclusively on Style.com, the designer shares his point of view on the Hermès customer: “She’s not a fashion victim. She likes style. She knows who she is, and she’s looking for timeless beauty and real luxury.” Sound like you? Watch the clip.
