RUNWAY INSPIRATION: Hermès
"It was a real statement. I wanted this collection to have an obviously sporty flair: technical fabrics, neat cuts. I like the easiness of pieces like a leather baseball shirt and a printed windbreaker."
Véronique Nichanian, menswear designer

Varsity Jacket

With its nylon construction, eye-catching jewel tones, and leather zipper pull, this updated classic is a perfect spring layering piece.
