Hermes delivers collection of classic suits
Sat Jan 24, 6:00 PM EST

PARIS – Hermes' menswear collection of superbly constructed suits and leather coats was solid but broke little new ground Saturday for the venerable French label.

What it lacked in surprises, though, the winter 2009-2010 collection by French designer Veronique Nichanian more than made up for in wearable elegance. Made from wool cashmere blends in grays, black and loden, the single and double-breasted suits were timeless.

Superstar rapper Kanye West called the collection "really dope" and said he loved the double-breasted suits worn with scarves in primary colors. "It felt like a mix between pop and luxury, which I love," he told The Associated Press.

"It's one of the few brands that I actually still have to look at the price," added West — a frequent first-row guest at many of the big-name shows this week in Paris — with an impish smile.

A nubuck crocodile trench and calfskin bomber jacket drew on the heritage of the house, which was founded in 1837 as a saddlemaker.

Leather details dressed up many of the pants, and a yellow cardigan with lambskin inserts on the chest — West's favorite piece — was one of the more original looks at the show.
