Well, ce soir, Nichanian tweaked her silhouette un peu with a longer jacket and a delicately carrot-cut pant that will require plenty of shoe consideration—it was cut high—among Hermès-phrodites. That dragon-etched buttons, fire-hemmed knitwear, and dragon jacquard suiting were a flight of fancy reconsideration of Pegasus.
Véronique Nichanian’s designs displayed not a hint of forniphilia (mais non!), but the love applied to the upholstery upon her models was reflected in the fantasy-Ikea surroundings of a venue heaped with Régence, Directoire, Louis XI, Art Deco, Charles X, and much more besides. If you’re the type of man lucky enough to purchase Hermès before, this collection will make you want to buy it again.
