For the fall winter season 2008-2009, the chic French luxury house Hermès presented a breathtaking advertising campaign shot by the renowned fashion photographer Eric Valy. Both beautiful and original, the ad visuals reinforce the nostalgic feel the houses’ ready-to-wear collection of French fashion classics evoked. The Hermès “Indian Winter” collection is well translated on the photographs, that were shot on a winter set surrounded by snow covered mountains with Italian model Mariacarla Boscono.
Entitled “An Indian Winter”, the advertising visuals show an array of pieces from the Hermès Fall Winter 2009 ready-to-wear collection. Prominently featured in fire Indian colors such as yellow, red and orange, contrasting strong with the pale white snowy background, are Hermès embroidered coats in sheepskin, heavy knitwear, skirts in delicate fabrics as cashmere, silk and wool etamine and the iconic embroidered riding boots in suede goatskin as well as coveted high fashion accessories as the Hermès Jypsiere bag, pictured in taurillon Clemence, and stunning south Asia inspired silk Hermès scarfs.
