Equestrian vaulting poles standing tall and painted bright set the background scene for the latest Hermès show. Garments presented in its Fall/Winter 2020 collection were a mix of details pulled straight from the house’s DNA and contemporary spins on classics like pleated skirts, coats, and shirtdresses.

A white long-sleeved turtleneck top featured an opening at the front of the neck for a neck scarf, paired with leather pants; flowing hemlines of dresses under sweater-dresses flared below the knee, cuffed with sturdy black boots; a quilted black leather skirt with buttons and zippers down the front were held high with suspenders, complemented by a thick sweater; and thick jackets with shoulder flaps, coats with pulls and hooks, and elongated vests with deep pockets and tall collars were seen topping several of the minimal looks.

Of note was a long geometrical wristlet bag carried by the hand, and enough new belts, scarves, and satchels to fill a Queen’s accessories closet.
