PARIS, France — The Hermès show always comes with a series of pre-set expectations. You don't come here waiting for a fashion epiphany, for a start. In fact, this season, too, it was all about tweaked classics in the supplest, most luxurious materials. Proportions were decidedly bold, and color somber yet painterly. A basic item rethought in some crazy leather is another given. This season, it was cable-knit effect sheepskin pullovers. They looked gorgeous. Understated accessories are another must. The season's mood — a play on proportions — was captured in a series of outsized fanny packs worn even on top of outerwear. They looked slightly out of place. All in all, it was classic Hermès: nonchalant and classy. The lack of forwad-pushing fashions compensated by the collection's timelessness. That's a lot.
