Bid goodbye to bleak midwinter
Forget the greiges and slurry tones of winter; next winter, cold
snaps and Crayola brights go hand in hand. Berluti showcased a
delicious medley of rust, caramel, indigo, cerulean, dusky lilac and,
in the case of one coat, panels of soft raspberry and coral in suede
and leather. Designer Alessandro Sartori was inspired by the Texan
landscape in this standout collection. At Hermès, clothes came in
contrasting salmon, biscuit, aquamarine, tobacco and periwinkle, the
colours shooting through the darkness of the backdrop; the
sky-to-ceiling windows showing the Seine and Eiffel Tower by night.
Exuberant batik-style printed neck scarves and nifty, sporty trainers
in solid block colours – high-vis orange and magenta – emphasised that
the Hermès man is a hop-on-the-jet-and-winter-in- St-Barts kind of
guy. Aren’t we all?
