THE FAMOUS fashion brand Hermes has chosen New York City in the United States to present what it calls “Chapter Two” of its Fall-Winter 2024 collection, which was first shown in Paris in March.

According to the Hollywood Reporter on Friday (06/07), the creative director of the 2024 Hermes brand, Nadège Vanhée, has always expressed her desire to show in the Big Apple, having lived in New York for many years as a designer on The Row.

The fashion show took place on Thursday night (June 6) at Pier 36, where the twinkling of dozens of decorative traffic lights marked the runway as models including Anok Yai, Irina Shayk and Paloma Elesser walked the catwalk to the theme “Luck of Lucien” by A Tribe Called Quest.

In this follow-up to the Paris show, a familiar range of clothing was presented, redesigned in a sporty style with urban accents. The Rocabar horse blanket features an architectural silhouette in a vibrant ochre color.

Competition jackets have been reinvented in the name of softness, with leather straps combining beautifully with knits. All in all, the healthy stuff combines the fun stuff in an urban and feminine reinterpretation. Celebrities on hand for the eclectic, pluralistic and optimistic fashion presentation included Usher, Jenny Slate and Lily Allen. Other highlights of the collection, complemented by stiff bracelets, include down jackets and raincoats, black leather pants and mustard jackets. [antaranews/photo special]
