Hermès fall 2023 menswear

January 23, 2023
During menswear week in Paris Véronique Nichanian was in a nostalgic — and generous — mood, reworking wardrobe classics with comfort, warmth and practicality top of mind. She said it was a collection about men who are going places. “It’s about long lines, long legs, men striding forward. This man knows where he’s going and he feels optimistic,” said the brand's artistic director, Véronique Nichanian. Discover the favorite looks from the collection here.

A collection with a tang of oxymoron, sweet and sharp, for walking men.
They feel at liberty to strike up playful conversations between pieces, to combine them, to juxtapose lengths, to alternate volumes: wardrobe essentials shaken up, their always-precise construction daring novel proportions.
There’s a sense of play in the look of these men, alert and in motion: legs set forward, slender and distinct; the pace confident, the silhouette invigorated. There’s a sense of seduction in the caress of cash- meres and flannels, baby lamb and crisp fabrics, dif- ferent leather grains, and a boldness in the choice of a jewellery.
Also palpable is an attention to the sensuality of the clothes, the details that allow them to make each piece their own: a hidden pocket, the surprise of a leather back on a pea coat.
Charcoal, gravel, fog, caramel, brown, coffee, camel, navy, ivory, and black: the palette reveals muted tones that grow in richness and speak to one another, shot through with a flash of light, intense as winter light.
The hand of the craftsman suffuses these clothes and their stories: in these braided leathers and knits that carry the trace of multiple lives; in these palimpsests of scarves on knits; in these fragments of leather on a jacket; in an Irish cable knit born in colour and as- serted in stitching; in framing effects, in the silk yoke of a cardigan.
An invitation to a winter journey where timelessness rhymes with innovation, where creation creates a resonance between comfort and sophistication.
