Hermès brought luxury to the desert for its Spring/Summer 2023 collection this year. Womenswear creative director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski took her inspiration from “a rave in the desert,” devising the outfits that ultimately became upscale practicality. Hermès took its Paris Fashion Week audience to the sand dunes, to set the tone for a post-desert hike rave.

The collection is a nod to the changing ideals of vacation since the pandemic. Hermès continues to adapt to the present notions of luxury travel, focusing on wilderness retreats and bringing an outdoor escape for urban dwellers. Vanhee-Cybulski wants to reinvigorate the city girl with a utilitarian look equipped for hikes outdoors. The show opened with leather jumpsuits and windbreakers in a tanned color scheme, a nod to the desert hues. While the garments themselves may not be the first choice for a nature adventure, Vanhee-Cybulski still wanted to bring a sense of lightness to the theme, without making it too technical. Focusing on a collection that leans towards sandy beige and shades of brown with tints of dawn pink to represent the morning, the collection continues to paint a picturesque holiday escape.

This is not to say that the pieces are not functional for the outdoors. Vanhee-Cybulski revealed a raincoat featuring a tech-fabric back with breathable mesh revealed at the underlayer as well as a hooded rain poncho constructed with supple leather. The theme continues with utilitarian detailed pieces like the elastic cording similar to the climbing rope aesthetic, used to hold dresses together, as well as the slim dresses featuring user-friendly zips for a customizable look. This season, Vanhee-Cybulski playfully imagines a life out in the vast desert, holding on to the earthy palette that informs the SS23 collection.
