Paris Fashion Week highlights: Hermes

By Andrea Petrou on October 7th, 2010 4 comments

The Paris Fashion Week whirlwind came to an end last night, with fatigued fashionistas giving out their final air kisses before packing their designer bags and heading back home.

However, that was  after they had watched the last PFW show, which was of course Hermes. Not only did this close the event but also marked the end of Jean Paul Gaultier’s seven year designer stint at the house.

And what a finale it was. JPG gave us a stunning collection with a strong nod at the equestrian theme and the brand’s leather saddle making past by marching horses up the catwalk.

Leather made an appearance in tailored jackets, trousers and of course trousers. As you would expect with such a theme there were also jodhpurs and, quite originally jumpsuits, which were wound into the theme thanks to suede patches.

There were waistcoats and thick leather corsets as well as chiffon dresses for the evening.

It’s a show we’ll definitely remember..until next season at least.
