If you were keeping track of the runways during Paris Fashion Week, then we don't need to tell you about Hermes' collection of tennis whites and evening wear perfect for Venus and Serena Williams. It was a regular court-side show, where models strutted while clutching rackets and there was nary an enquestrian-influenced item in sight.
In their Madison Avenue windows however, fall is manifesting itself with the usual Hermes orange and brown, and the usual old tricks of rich suede and silks. For once, mannequin hair works, even if the Hermes ones are completely windblown. We like it, and we're betting that the window shoppers along Mad Ave do as well, since the colors present so evoke fall in a way you just need. Oh?and there's an art installation of "Foot Ball" by Marcus Tomlinson on the second floor, so don't be afraid to enter in from the cold street.
