Let Them be Light
What should follow the bomber jacket rage from a couple of seasons back? Véronique Nichanian of Hermès Men’s Universe has consistently and creatively obsessed over blousons or light jackets season after season. But the idea of lightness is further pursued, as her latest collection unfolds luxurious cardigans and hoodies made of leather—the supplest kind of leather, we must add. They exude a casual style, but come with the masculine oomph akin to leather biker jackets. There’s no mistaking the exquisite detailing embedded into the design, be it the mother-ofpearl buttons or the wonderfully soft lambskin for the pockets. Like any leather goods from this top-end Parisian brand, these cardigans and hoodies will most likely last for a lifetime, and are most definitely worth splurging on.
