For the virtual presentation of its Women’s Autumn/winter collection, Hermès created a triptych – a living performance that took place in three acts. At the heart of this threepart performance was a socially distanced Paris fashion show at the Garde Républicaine, broadcast live on various media. The “prologue” took place not in Paris but in New York, at the Armory Show, where choreographer Madeline Hollander kicked things off with a free interpretation of the movements gleaned from Nadège Vanhée-cybulski’s collection. At the close of the Paris show, the baton was passed over to Shanghai, where dancers under the direction of choreographer Gu Jiani concluded the triptych, injecting renewed energy and strength into the collection.
