A testament that luxurious fashion does not necessarily need to come at the hand of outrageously bold designs and superfluous aesthetics, the recent Hermes 2013 spring/summer show during Paris Fashion Week was that of a mature man and one who sees little need to prove anything. A display of conservative, yet elegantly tailored offerings, designer Veronique Nichanian made use of staple tones and hues to create a wide range of pieces that are as timeless as they are minimal. Playing around with various color-blocking techniques and tonal layering outfits, the show opened in a sea of muted blue tones paired with a fluent application of white button-downs and slimming footwear. Transition by way of neutral tan colors and a muted olive palette, decidedly neon yellows took prominence across light overcoats, hooded sweatshirts, knitwear, slim fit trousers and spacious shorts. Once again applying a tonal affinity, recurring neutrals played the base for a mixture of reddish maroon colors that finished off a notable trio of prominent colors for the Hermes Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
