Hermès Fall/Winter 2021-2022 collection
Infused with radiant mystery, power, an aura, cavalières, stride forth in the lines of this new collection. If asked, they might not even recall these last few months, preferring to remember more uncomplicated times. It’s urgent now to live again, to venture forth into the unknown, to gain a new lease of life. It is a time of rebuilding: so much remains to be explored, beginning with womanhood, a concept that has changed quite a lot these past few years. Time flies, which is surely a sign that we need to reinvent ourselves. This collection’s inspiration was found in the desire to explore new mythologies. Clothes that are just as suitable for nightlife as they are for our daily routines show that opposites do not longer oppose.
Hermès Fall/Winter 2021-2022 presentation was centred around New York, Paris and Shanghai. In the Big Apple, dancers kicked-off Hermès’ presentation.The Prologue took place at the Armory Show, under supervision of Madeleine Hollander. After the following runway show in Paris, dancers in Shanghai took over – under the direction of choreographer Gu Jiani – injecting renewed energy into the collection. According to Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, it was important to recreate the adrenaline of a physical fashion show. Her message to the world is to start live again; the collection was all about resilience, perfectly suited for both times like these and more uncomplicated times in the future.
