From Hermès’ Fall-Winter 2016 collection comes so many beautiful things that I’ll be honest, I still know nothing but here’s a sneak peek anyway because I’m a firm believer that #goodthingsmustshare.
From the Octogone bag in Epsom calfskin leather that comes with the Rocabar strap to a rather curious ID-card sling strap that comes with a shark motif (the same motif also appears on the Bolide45 and other accessories as well), it’s a collection that’s fun and unexpected, and I don’t know if it’s just me, but very ‘youthful’ as well.
Take, for example, the Grrrr! cashmere and silk scarf featuring an adorable bear designed by Alice Shirley that’s also actually cute. And then there are the bracelets, simply known as bracelets in Swift calfskin that come with a newly imagined bijou strap, which can be worn stacked and come in various interpretations, from square/round studs to square perforations and even double tours, all varied takes on the original Collier de Chien.
Last but not least (for now, anyway), the Gambade earrings, featuring house symbols that also come in the form of necklaces and bracelets in rose gold and a sprinkling of diamonds that according to Hermès, are perfect for ‘everyday wear’. Yes, if I were the heiress to an oil fortune but that’s another story for another day. For now, just enjoy the pieces and I’ll be back with more updates (and even more bags and accessories) soon.
