The Latest Hermès Collection Brings Together French Sophistication and New York Grit

Last night, New Yorkers made their way downtown to Pier 39 on the Lower East Side for the latest Hermès runway show. It was the second chapter of its fall/winter 2024 collection that was shown at Paris Fashion Week in March—a continuation of the sexy sensuality and cool toughness of the first installment. This time around, veering away from a mostly neutral palette and executed vibrant shades of Hermès orange, hunter green, and taxi cab yellow. It marked ten years since artistic director Nadège Vanhée joined the fashion house, who cited her previous years living in NYC as a point of inspiration.

Perfectly-cut straight-leg leather pants appeared in the shades of onyx, camel, and tomato red and felt primed for a lower Manhattan crowd. Iconic Hermès bags including the Kelly, Plume, and the new-ish Arçon got the downtown treatment—slung over the shoulder, tucked in the crook of the arm, or even tied at the waist. The maison’s iconic scarf motifs, too, were reimagined with thoughtful styling that will no doubt enter the wardrobes of the NYC fashion crowd. Colorful scarves were artfully tied at the waist, while scarf prints were infused into ready-to-wear pieces such as layered button-downs and cardigans. Every look felt like a mash-up of French sophistication with New York grit, bringing an undeniable element of youthful cool to couture-level craftsmanship.
