The new Spring/Summer 2021 collection from Hermès is a dialogue between fashion and art.
A short while ago, Hermès presented its women’s ready to wear Spring/Summer 2021 runway show at the Tennis Club de Paris. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection ushers in a rush of freedom that hits all the right notes with an upbeat colour palette of bright orange and red amid an array of neutral colours. To help evoke these feelings of freedom, creative director Nadège Vanhee-Cylbulski worked together with 12 talented artists who inspired her to create a contemporary scrapbook that interpreted the new collection in new works and images. The scrapbook was then sent out to editors around the world who couldn’t travel for the show to better understand the collection.
The new collection is a dialogue between fashion and art, a free interpretation of patterns, incarnations and digressions around the themes and silhouettes. The silhouette in question is graceful and confident, and serves as a sensitive second skin that expresses strength and fragility. It’s all about reconnecting with the outside and rediscovering sensuality.
The lines hug the body to better enhance it, framing without restricting. While the clothing liberates, the materials protect and the warm colors tenderly interact. This is what happens when utility meets sensory pleasure. The new collection also reveals a new world of possibilities with the enduringly seductive that is seen outside of Hermès’ usual timeless appeal but nevertheless, the new collection has reached a new, clever modern appeal.
