Discover the backstage atmosphere at Hermes‘ Spring Summer 2019 womenswear fashion show, held on Saturday, 29 September 2018, at the Hippodrome de Longchamp, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week, captured by photographer Lena C Emery.
“The Hermès Spring-Summer 2019, a woman on horseback, chasing her dreams beyond the horizon. A modern myth, she wears leather mesh with techno-spartan sandals.
Under the sun, she wanders in shorts worn with the lightest jacket in Barénia leather or in delicate plaited lambskin… Always carefree. At nightfall she puts on a coat, an homage to Méditerranée. A single pigment traces across the double face cashmere, and the lines unravel themselves like paths. The rider scans the horizon. The sailor looks out on deck. Each one like the other, watching for the next wave, the new wave. And they ask themselves: have we never once thought what if Corto Maltese had been a woman, Lord Jim a Lady? Penelope a man and Odysseus his wife?“
