Hermès - Menswear collection Autumn/Winter 2017/18 in Paris ( with interview )

Designer : Véronique Nichanian Location : Salle Pleyel Collection : Romantico-Rock, with a masculine wardrobe with profound tones, supple materials and contrasting volumes Focus on : the enveloping belted coats, on the double breasted suits, on the jackets with zipped pockets, on the square patchwork shirts , on the high waisted trousers and on the many propositions of jumpers with buttoned down collar or a rounded woollen and sheepskin collar.To note : The materials are refined with cashmere in mixed up H’s, with ribbed and braided effects.Véronique Nichanian :What interests me is not that everyone understands all the great work behind, but to feel good in the clothes, to have fun, to feel the sensuality of the materials, the cut and what the highlights them, what makes them seductive, for me the meaning of a piece of clothing is that, its wellbeing, it’s to feel good in your skin, to feel attractive. We worked the shearling and sheepskin in braids, so we did it to these jumpers, and really what I like about my job is playing with things, we have the impression that it’s two different pieces of clothing, or the clothes are reversible in order to have more lives, a pullover looks like a pullover and in fact its sheepskin, and also in this collection we played on the volumes, of the larger trousers and narrower tops to create things.For me the masculine garment, especially the suits, shouldn’t ever be constricting and for the men, comfort is something which goes before everything and it’s very important for me too and here with the new crosses, 6 buttons, higher crosses, that gives a new energy, with narrower trousers, which give quite nervous new silhouettes like that, quite dynamic.Music from the show (only to be used in the context of the show, protected by the right to information.)
