Before athleisure became a thing and streetwear started to dominate the fashion scene, sportswear was actually a lot more refined than what it is now. Labels like Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Missoni, and more were categorized as sportswear, even though their signature styles were extremely sophisticated. For spring 2019, French luxury giant Hermès trotted out a collection that harkened back to those elegant times. Making use of their high-quality leathers, they put forth a parade of simple and subtle pieces that were as refined as they were ready-to-wear. Even though a lot of these dresses and separates were made out of leather, every garment looked light and airy—an extraordinary feat of sublime craftsmanship. This came as no surprise coming from a brand famed for having the most desirable and coveted leather goods in the luxury world.
