The audience at the Hermès show was given a pamphlet entitled ‘Hermès Colors’. Inside was a text by British musician Jarvis Cocker that ‘sang’ the colours of Hermès, the stars of this collection, alongside check prints reworked with unusual and almost irregular weaves. The first look was a tartan horse-blanket cape over a dark green shirt tucked into high-waist suede shorts. Next came 50 other compositions in which checks decorated bombers, jackets, knits, skirts and trousers in a variety of colours, from black-blue-beige to shades of grey and pink. The Grand Manège scarf print, featuring intertwining bridles, was used on fluid dresses, T-shirts and suits, creating an elegant, refined graphic.
