And so the dial moves, a click left, three clicks right, unlocking that combination of space, proportion and exquisite taste that lies at the heart of Hermès. Period. Always. Leather top stitching some serious saddlery so expert it will hang forever in the great hall cloakroom, (heiress clothes) shrug it on, throw it off, canvas, drill, left right, left right walking to all that mellow ‘Maria’. A French mood. And so to the cute bag, the new IT Hermès bag. All that lil’ rectangular mini goodness with a whopping wide orange, naturelle, strap (because the strap is just as important as the bag) and we are sucked in. Suck it up. Sunset, sunrise, deserts, travellers. Chunky strappy gladiators. Tabards. Square neck ‘pinafores’. And the best cherry red jumpsuit. Fresh and tuned in. It’s a state of mind, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski.
