Hermes Fall 2010 vs. Emma Peel
Siouxsie noticed that a lot of folks are blogging about the Hermes Fall 2010 collection. Well, at least a lot of folks on blogs that Siouxie reads. Well, alright, Haute Macabre blogged about the collection.
Siouxsie wanted to share the collection with you. For one, the suits shown are absolutely spectacular. And second, it is a really bizarre collection. At least it is if you are familiar with the British television series the Avengers.
Just hear me out. This is important. The Hermes collection essentially takes Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) and morphs her into John Steed (Patrick MacNee). In the collection Emma Peel starts out in her classic iconic leather cat suit. Note though, that the outfit is accessorized with John Steed’s bowler hat. The gender-bending collection is surprisingly accessible and scorchingly hot.
See for yourselves. Here is the Hermes Fall 2010 collection.
If you don’t know who Emma Peel is or who the Avengers were, then do yourself a favor and watch the opening sequence to the show embedded below.
Below is a clip from Siouxsie’s favorite episode of the Avengers: A Touch of Brimstone. This episode was banned in the United States. How in the world does Emma Peel get out of this predicament?
