It usually takes a lot for me to go weak in the knees over a new collection. It usually varies from time to time and is hardly ever consistent. I do know that there has to be a certain, special spark that ignites my fashion sense within; causing me to then foam at the mouth and then collapse. I kid of course. I don’t I’ve actually collapsed over a designer collection but I have hyperventilated…slightly. One of those suddenoments of shock happened to come while I was gazing upon the creations from Hermès Spring 2014 RTW collection.
Models gracefully waltzed down the runway wearing gorgeous ensembles that looked as if they belonged on a 1940’s Hollywood starlet vacationing in the jungle. The show took place in the Orangerie et Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris which definitely set the tone for the luxurious designs, which consisted of relaxed pieces in a beautiful palette of teals, greens, peach, and white.
The entire collection was kept uncomplicated and laid-back, with minimal prints here and there. My favorite piece in the entire collection would have to be the pairing of a short-sleeve, cobalt blouse and a mid-length, emerald, snakeskin skirt. The combination was simplistically chic and right up my ally when it comes to getting dressed. This is certainly one of womanswear designer, Christophe Lemaire’s, impressive collections yet. She understands that a woman wants to be both chic yet comfortable and incorporates that theory into one, stimulating RTW collections for spring.
