The debut of a new creative director is always a much anticipated affair. Today’s, from Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, formerly of The Row and Céline, had Hermès fans breathing a sigh of relief: the house’s reputation for refined elegance is still in good hands. Vanhee-Cybulski sent out a decidedly covered-up collection of long sleeves, high necks, and long skirts. Still, there was a move to reinvigorate old classics with pops of yellow, red, and blue. And even the classic Hermès equestrian blanket got reimagined as a luxe cashmere poncho coat, complete with the modern touch of a sporty racer stripe.
