Famed for its classic and understated aesthetic and first-name-only handbags, we unleash the millennial side Hermès' latest ready-to-wear collections

There are few luxury houses in the world who can lay claim to creating a truly timeless product. Rare as it may be, Hermès is one such label, having achieved a sartorial slamdunk via its range of covetable yet eternally chic leather goods. Thanks to precise craftsmanship and a commitment to quality above all else, the Hermès brand is one that is synonymous with true luxury, season after season.

Indeed, timelessness and heritage is a message that is carried quietly across to Hermès' ready-to-wear, care of women's artistic director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski and men's artistic director Véronique Nichanian, who never failsto deliver an impeccable collection of sleek and formidable basics in luxurious fabrics like leather, cashmere and wool. For A/W '17, Vanhee-Cybulski and Nichanian both presented collections as effortlessly elegant as they were modern.

Thanks to lively use of checks and tweeds (in both the women's and men's collections), sleek knitwear and sharp-shooting outerwear, the A/W '17 collection managed to tread a fine balance past and present. And as our trio of fresh-faced models wearing Hermès (above) demonstrates; just because something is classic, doesn't make it boring. Young or old, Hermès is endlessly open to interpretation.
