Century old signature crocodiles bags and equestrian accessories have evolved into white crocodile riding boots and brown crocodile jhodpurs for Spring 08. Therefore-Hermes successfully outdid itself in creating the ultimate definition of luxury. Bikinis, silk dresses and fedora or panama hats once dressed a sophisticated Hermes lady in the past, but a passage to india cultures her with saris, turbans and kurta style blazers as the Hermes client (according to style.com) is expanding globally. Deep plum and gold metallic (more gold fabric than accessories) are the two most prevalent colors, but brilliant jewel toned gowns wrap up the collection. Hermes silk print scarves and a few ties make their appearance as well. One of the most elegant Hermes looks with a strong flavor of India is a fitted khaki blouse with breasted pocketes and bishop sleeves paired with khaki empire waist, loose fit pants (see second to last image).
