Hermès FW20 Collection

Mock Up

A fine-knit mock turtleneck (bodysuit?) is in over half of the Hermès FW20 collection looks and I totally missed it. It’s one of my beloved items to layer and is styled to perfection under matching cardigans and polos. The necklace is Hermès, too — it’s divine.

  • Wearing a mock neck as we speak. That necklace is unbelievably wonderful.

  • Thinking of Nora Ephron’s book, I Feel Bad About My Neck. I love mock necks-even without a gorgeous necklace.

  • Am I the only women over 50 that feels the mock/turtleneck looks aging?

    TTJanuary 18th, 2021  10:50 AM

     
  • @TT – I love them on other but feel the same…aging if you’re of a certain age.

  • If you have a short neck or the dreaded “turkey waddle”, a mock turtle is NOT your friend!

  • I’m with TT and Kathy – I think the mock turtleneck look can be aging. But I’m not giving up my big soft oversized turtlenecks – in fact, I’m living in them during lockdown.

  • I’m in the over-sixty set. I haven’t tried a mock turtleneck in some time, but I am going to seek these out and try it. One of my most flattering knits is a very fine gauge cashmere and silk black turtleneck – Piazza from a decade+ ago! It is sort of a nice canvas for whatever else I put on. I generally love turtlenecks of any type except the big, thick rollneck variety. These beautiful Hermes mock t’s remind me of Anne from The Crown.

  • Yes to a mock neck. They are much more comfortable than turtlenecks. No to bodysuits too many bad memories.

  • Rebeca Taylor makes a fabulous mock neck; light weight but still substantial enough to wear alone.

  • I am also of a “certain age”…70 in May. It all depends on what looks good on you…if you have the neck for a mock turtle or a turtleneck, go for it! Some don’t…I am lucky enough to have a neck that doesn’t showcase my age.

  • In related news, I just started using Nectifirm after seeing incredible before and after photos from a close friend. As a millennial, I have the dreaded “tech neck” and am excited to visibly reduce my fine lines. I’ll be wearing mock necks in the meantime to cover them up. Wanted to share with the incredible KIC community!
