A nod to the maison’s roots and its most recognisable emblems, Hermès’s fall/winter 2023 showing was presented on an orange-drenched stage that brought forth its most coveted designs. To the uninitiated, the legacy luxury house might be famed for its iconic bags, but their footwear yields equally high praise and has been favoured by the likes of Eva Longoria, Meghan Markle, and Sofia Richie Grainge. Presented at the Garde Républicaine on 18 Boulevard Henri-IV in Paris earlier this year, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski’s vision was presented through fiery colours and sleek silhouettes. Materials like suede, silk, cashmere and alpaca wool took centrestage in head-to-toe tonal looks.
The shoes were a definite focal point on the runways and now that the fall/winter 2023 offerings are available to peruse, this message of feminine sensuality and hints of playfulness can be tried out for size. This season, Hermès equips their wearers with a sense of sophistication and sartorial command. With robust accessories, its flourishes of equestrian heritage heralds a more relaxed aura, while maintaining the soul of the house.
Within its women’s offerings, expect depth in colours and shapes, most fashioned out of sumptuous and supple calfskin. While the Kelly clasp, a classic fixture, is spotted on the line up’s sophisticated thigh-high black boots and chic pumps, maximalists can rejoice at the array of statement-making options available. Those who prefer more formal silhouettes can choose from a selection of chunky loafers in metallised and glazed finishes, too.
Dimension is revealed in the season’s selection of colours, with crowd favourite pieces such as the Hermès Chypre sandal being available in purples, mauves, and more. Have a play with texture by trying shearling and satin out for size. If you’re in the mood for something more delicate, opt for vibrant mules in Nappa leather.
Whether you’re looking to make a statement or keep things understated, Hermès’s fall/winter 2023 footwear collection is one to keep your eye on.
