Parisian high fashion brand Hermès consistently presents opulent designs and collections. Such is the case once again with the Objets spring/summer 2020 collection, which encompasses a delightful variety of colourful offerings.
Familiar silhouettes are reworked in adjusted measurements, whimsical add-ons and vibrant detailing. These qualities are particularly evident in the highlighted items from the collection, including bags, the iconic Hermès silk scarves, jewellery pieces and the ever-popular Apple Watch Hermès.
An especially notable entry in this season’s Objets collection is the Bolide 1923 – 30 rainbow bag in Epsom calfskin. Decorated with a rainbow made of strips of leather that have been worked using the piqué-collé technique, it is available in two harmonies: One evoking the sun at high noon, while the other evokes twilight.
The Objets spring/summer 2020 also introduces a new chapter in the story of Hermès silk. One of the standouts from collection is the Clair de lune round scarf 140 in silk twill. This surprising round scarf unveils a the hidden side of the moon, created by Dimitri Rybaltchenko. Bordered by a thin crescent of black sky sprinkled with stars, a vast lunar disc is becomes a backdrop for the prancing silhouette of a powerful Pegasus.
Moving to the jewellery and accessories, there cuff bracelets in aluminium that display luminous and deep colours, thanks to an innovative technical process by the maison. As light as they are resistant, they these bracelets are decorated with a perforated H or pyramid studs.
The shoes collection is definitely not to be overlooked, especially . A notable highlight would be the sandal in suede goatskin with Chaîne d’ancre lumière motif heel. Its lacquered metal heel is inspired by the jewellery line and gives the Chaîne d’ancre lumière bracelet a new twist.
One last element from the Objets spring/summer 2020 collection worth looking into is the Apple Watch Hermès Series 5. Its dial is entirely in black, as are the strap and buckle. Time is revealed by the interplay of light and shadow that accompanies the revolution of the hands. The Apple Watch Hermès Series 5 also reveals a play on contrasts with new straps. Three monochrome colours–encre, étain and brique– are presented in leather bearing prints from the Della Cavalleria scarf design. The dial harmonises with these new creations, prolonging the intensity of the colours.
