Hermès unveils the Men’s Summer 2023 show as part of Paris Fashion Week, Men’s. Designed by Véronique Nichanian, the collection is an ode to “a bright, vibrant summer; the joy of being together. The vacation spirit, a magic destination both joyous and serene, with the breeze imperceptibly ruffling the clothes that enfold you. A feeling of lightness makes you float in the sunlight.”
This is a breezy collection punctuated with a poetic color palette: lemonade, lagoon, lilac, bubblegum, melon. Under the right light they sometimes turn white or pastel.
Carefully selected refined prints seem to move on their own volition. “Lines deviate slightly on their sloping path to freedom. A shirt proudly displays a bold and charming seahorse, or a spectacular giant crayfish.”
Hermès’ enduring attention to detail and the finest quality fabrications continue with Summer 2023. Berlingot canvas, nubuck calfskin, crepe cotton serge, perforated leather, sunset tints are a few of the materials used. “The collection is precise, crafted with the refinement of the hand and the nonchalance of a mind that is free of barriers.”
The show was presented in the open-air enclosure of the Manufacture des Gobelins. Cyril Teste, close partner of Creative Director Véronique Nichanian, imagined a gesture in the form of a canvas sliding out of the building, swaying slightly in the breeze before disappearing – as if diving – through a workshop window.”
