Equestrian Fever in Hermes 2011 Collection

I’d love to fancy myself as a fashionista, but the truth is, I can’t see past my maternity wardrobe these days. However, whenever something in the world happens that involves horses, I am immediately drawn to it. That’s why Jean-Paul Gaultier’s last show for Hermes held in Paris, in the fall of 2010, caught my attention straight away.

Utilizing dressage horses and riders as a backdrop underneath a chandelier-topped arena at the end of the catwalk, Jean-Paul Gaultier showcased a collection that recognized Thierry Hermes’ long history of fine leather work (Hermes got his early beginnings with his fine craftsmanship of horse harnesses.) The Hermes Spring/Summer 2011 clothing collection combined buttery leathers with tailored jackets, sultry corsets, jodphurs, vests and even a watercolor dye chiffon dress bound by a leather corset. Crops, boots and Spanish style hats added extra touches of equestrian flair to the outfits, while snaffle bits and lunge-like whips showed off pretty waistlines as belts. The colors of the outfits ranged from butterscotch to warm white, to caramel and black, with a dash of blue suede, red and bright orange for good measure.

The collection signified Jean-Paul Gaultier’s departure from Hermes and marked the end of his 7-year tenure as creative director there.
