Véronique Nichanian, deputy artistic director for menswear at Hermès, sets no limits in creating her designs—an observation that is confirmed by her latest series of bomber jackets.The designer has a gift for taking costly and sometimes cumbersome materials and reimagining them in more wearable, contemporary ways. The reversible Teddy Blouson ($27,400), for example, sports mink shorn so short it feels like velvet on one side; the other side is lambskin. The quilted Chiffon Crocodile jacket ($185,400) appears to be hefty but is actually super lightweight. (800.441.4488, www.hermes.com) Watches by Chopard.
