paris - blaynistas, you be the judge. for some reason the last collection i saw from hermes bored me to tears (it wasn't by gaultier though, woman designer, but i forget who). i was fully prepared to slag off this years collection by the legendary jean paul gaultier, but something about these supple, sultry belted leather jackets won't let me. the 57 look collection did have some painfully basic moments, but the highlights above really made the collection worth a second look for me. at the end of the day, as nicole phelps said in her review on style.com, this collection isn't making fashion news as others did in paris this season, but it's solid enough to hold its own.
