If I could afford it, I would wear Hermes everyday. It’s horsey/equestrian look is my style type. The browns, oranges and creme colors are my colors. I love it all. Jean Paul Gaultier showed his last collection for Hermes on October 6. He went all out with this one. The venue looked like a high-end horse arena, complete with a dressage show under mmassive chandeliers as an opener. It was a cohesive, well executed and high quality show with fifty-two outfits.

As a master tailor, Mr. Gaultier has done some amazing things with unusual fabrics. This line is no different. It is luxury, absolute luxury. I tend to like what Jean Paul Gaultier does for Hermes more than what he does for his own line, which is amazing in it’s own right, however very different from Hermes.
The heels were fairly chunky. The sandals were woven straps, but not thin straps. Over all, they worked well. Let’s see what Mr. Gaultier featured in his last collection for Hermes .
I know I did a Paris Week recap, but I wanted to show you Hermes. It is interesting that Jean Paul Gaultier can feature some of the most bizarre shoes and clothing for his own line, but his Hermes collection was completely wearable.
It had a 60′s Avengers look complete with furled umbrella, bowler hats and lots of leather. Love it.
I am a natural redhead who looks great in brown, tangerine and rust. When I saw this outfit I started making a mental list of how I could re-create this look for myself. It is smashing.
Here are the shoes Gaultier put with these outfits.
I saved the best for last. How gorgeous are these boots. I would wear these every day if I owned them.

For fall 2009, Hermès’ has a beautiful scarf for riding boot lovers. It’s called ‘A Propos De Bottes’ which, according to Google Translate means ‘Talking about Boots’ (French speakers, I would appreciate a more accurate translation if Google wasn’t up to snuff). I love how this scarf looks knotted on the safari/travel-themed model and even hung on the wall as a backdrop.
If you who live in an area which is too warm for scarves or don’t enjoy scarves as wall decor, there are other options. Check out Savvy Gal’s post for the handbag with scarf strap or BagSnob’s scarf bow tie on her Birkin.
‘A Propos De Bottes’ is available online at Hermès for $375.
After getting over my shock at seeing how downright fabulous Stephanie Seymour (she’s 40!) and Naomi Campbell (38) looked on the Western themed Hermes Spring 2009 runway, my attention finally turned to the shoes.
Although I couldn’t see much of a tie-in between the Western theme and these art deco shoes by Pierre Hardy, I’m a fan of the Hermes scarf ring-like shoes – I wonder, can a Hermes scarf be threaded in between the rings? And while I like the narrow platform, I suspect that the height of the heel and the shifting sand runway doesn’t make these models’ job easy to walk in.
More than any other fashion house, Hermes is known for their exotics. It’s appropriate that these shoes come in lizard skin as well.
Finally, is this the beginning of the Western motif and Hermes equestrian roots coming into play? Sure, these aren’t riding boots, but I love a versatile slouchy/tall flat boot.
And no cowboy theme would be complete with blue jeans. But I have to wonder, was Jean Paul Gaultier inspired by Katie Holmes when he jumped on the rolled up jean trend?
