When it comes to Lemaire, fashion world is accustomed to qualitative men’s and women’s collections with attentive details designed for everyday life. The French fashion house rightly embodies Parisian chic with a twist of realistic clothing and singular pieces influenced by the cosmopolitan streets of yesterday and Paris of today. Yesterday, at the Paris Fashion Week, designer duo Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran presented Spring 2018 ready-to-wear collection. The fashion verdict: erudite, mature, sophisticated, sexy.
To sum things up, it is as good as it gets! The effortless chicness seen throughout the Parisian fashion week continues with Lemaire’s tone-on-tone outfits, impeccable execution and great clothes designed with a grown-up audience firmly in mind. The collection is not about matching, it’s about complementing. Matching is easy, complementing is art. Lemaire Spring 2018 vision is sophisticated, inspired by the opening credits of one of Seijun Suzuki’s pink films. Print akin, luster and color dominate the outfits. Backstage Lemaire explained what he and his designing wife do as “finding the poetry in reality.” Tailoring is immaculate, varying from straight, narrow cuts to soft, spherical proportions. A lot of the attention was put in the back, as seen with the button-front shirt jacket cinched at the small of the spine, or the jacket zipped tightly between the shoulder blades. Subtlety lies in the details- tiny buttons, visible seams, statement collars. Committed to their own, unique vision, Lemaire designer duo proves quality can (and must!) beat quantity.
