The fashion brand’s announcement comes after Tokyo Fashion Week in Japan was being axed whereas Shanghai and Beijing Fashion Weeks are being put on hold until further notice.
AceShowbiz -Hermes bosses have joined the list of fashion house executives cancelling catwalk shows amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The brand’s latest event was set to be held on 28 April and feature looks from the French label’s Spring 2021 collection.
The annual Saint Hermes showjumping competition in Paris, scheduled for 20 and 22 March, has also been nixed following French government officials’ crackdown on gatherings of 1,000 people or more.
“Due to the exceptional health situation, Hermes, concerned with protecting all of its teams and partners and welcoming its guests in the best conditions, has decided not to present its spring 2021 cruise collection in London on the 28th of April,” a statement reads. “The house shows its empathy to all those affected by the current situation.”
Bosses at Gucci, Versace and Max Mara have also cancelled shows, while Tokyo Fashion Week in Japan has been axed, and Shanghai and Beijing Fashion Weeks have been postponed until further notice.
