Quote Of The Day: Suzy Menkes On Hermes Fall 2009

But instead of the bland face of the classic, Jean Paul Gaultier sent out a gutsy show, based on a photograph he saw of Amelia Earhart with a Hermès scarf tied around her aviator outfit. That silken square appeared only once in the show of malleable leathers. It was tied around an umbrella rather than a classic Hermès bag — although that is another area where, by keeping quiet, the category is irreproachably chic.
