Hermes Is Not The Only Orange On The Block

Hermes IS Not The Only Orange On The Block on vickiarcher.com

Hermes and orange are synonymous.

Like Tiffany blue or Cartier rouge, Hermes orange is one of those memorable combinations.

It’s not the only orange to love though.

There’s a new Eileen Fisher “pop-in” and some of the best pieces are orange. Orange with khaki, orange with white, orange with black and orange with stone. I love a slice of orange with my neutrals; even if a mini flash of Hermes scarf is the wedge in my outfit.

This new collection has many pieces but there are a few to love.

I am going with this jacket, sweater and skirt for starters.

I’m thinking the black skirt and citrus sweater with a pair of white sneakers would be a winning weekend wardrobe addition. And this anorak, worn with orange, is the best.

The idea of a bright flash amongst the northern hemisphere gloom tempts me.

I’m not convinced, ‘orange is the new black’ more like a willing sidekick. xv

You know, I had never considered this color since my olive skin often clashes with orange or other pastels. However, when I put it together with pink, it looks good on me!


orange…it might be a vibrant colour for Hermes boxes but not for big things of clothes like anorac, sweater (even it is cashmere) etc. and honestly I don’t see YOU in that colour although you would wear it in spring or summer


I’m afraid those pants look too much like the scrubs I wore in the hospital after surgery. But I love the anorak. Orange is just not for me unless it’s the kind you peel and eat. 😊


I think more accessories in orange. I have a lovely orange lizard skin style box/camera bag. Love it with the darker colours at this time of year, I’m not sure about a full block of colour though.


There is such a spectrum of different oranges too. It’s important to try several from the range to find one that works. I used to wear quite a lot of orange a few years ago. Mostly orange jackets with black or white pants. And I have a fabulous Italian shoulder bag in bright orange that doubles as a briefcase. It’s made from wild boar skin, cinghiale. Bought in Arezzo from the owner of a generations old family business. Nowadays I tend to wear a lot more navy or olive green but scarves with orange in the pattern work well with these, as well as with black. I deeply lament the closure of the house of Sonia Rykiel as they often had magnificent scarves with bright orange in the mix. Orange with blue, black, white and maybe green. Also orange with hot or lighter pink (depending on colour saturation levels) and a touch of red looks fab with a red jacket! Important to wear a lipstick colour that works with orange (not necessarily pure orange – a red on the orange spectrum can work well) as a nude/neutral lipstick can wash you out. True with so many colours as we age, I think. Best wishes, Pamela

Yes! A pop of orange is a wonderful thing. I particularly love it in a scarf, tee shirt, flats or sandals. Back in the 80’s I had a marvelous orange damask linen jacket from Beltrami. It had the GINORMOUS shoulders that were de rigeur At the time. Oh, how I adored that jacket. I literally wore it to shreds.
