Abstract art was the starting point for Pierre Hardy’s spring collection for men. He played with bright colors and reworked his signature cube motif into a rounded form beginning with a new range of silk scarves and working that fabric onto formal moccasins and luxe sneakers. Referencing artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and David Hockney, he carried the fun theme onto reworked derbies, falsely classic with their splash of burgundy across a white background, and on sneakers high and low. Hardy’s dandy likes to travel, too, referenced in minimalist suede sandals and slippers and mules inspired by espadrille and babouche designs, some in a cute black and white gingham with a nostalgic charm; others in more rustic suede. A sock sneaker with Hardy’s jagged Comet sole thrust color-blocking into the 21st century.
