Oh, Fantasy Friday, how I’ve missed you.
Seriously – it’s been too long. I’ve had this insane collection from Hermès sitting on the back-burner forever, and it’s finally time to bring it out, wipe the dust off, and let it shine in its glory.
I know, I know… If you’re into fashion, you’re likely already well-into the fall collections by now, but sometimes I like to mix it up and show you things that apply to the current season. This collection was one of my absolute favorites of the season, if not my number one.
I can’t decide what I love more: the hats, the leather, the neutral color palette (with hits of the signature Hermès orange, of course), or the equestrian/dominatrix vibe. It’s luxe, but totally edgy. The crazy-clean, hard lines and magnetic tailoring are offset by flowing, gauzy fabrics and draping. I’ve been obsessing over riding boots for a while now, and this collection highlights them in the most tremendous way.
It’s not easy to make sexy look so elegant – and that’s exactly what Jean Paul Gaultier has done with this collection.
What do you think, dolls? Are YOU ready to hit the horse trails?
