The Hermes collection for Fall 2009 celebrates aviator fashion. Due out later this year a movie starring Hilary Swank as Amelia Earhart will tie in perfectly with this adventurous style.

Hermes sumptuous leather fashions convey 1930’s pilot Earhart’s fearless nature. Belted bomber jackets, aviator hats and goggles add navigator style to bulky knit sweaters and floor length chocolate and tan leather shirts. Models carried rolled blankets with leather straps and chic flight bag-inspired portfolios.

Whether piloting your own airplane, traveling the world or simply staying stylishly warm; these fashions are truly ‘ready-to-wear’ wonders.

Earhart and her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean in 1937; the mystery of her disappearance still lives today and will surely have a resurgence when the ‘Amelia’ movie comes out.
