Christophe Lemaire’s body of work is a reminder of fashion’s true merit. Working in a meticulous manner to create meaningful, but accessible garments, Lemaire delivers a quality story in careful chapters. Very rare for most designers, Lemaire designs with a continuous theme in play. Marrying western and eastern silhouettes, each collection is a gradual progression in achieving some idea of the perfect balance. Ushering in the fall season are boxy oversized cuts that meet Mandarin collars for a romanticized vision of robe-like outerwear. Painted in earthy pigments, this same note is carried throughout the collection’s shirting and jacket options. Overall, a strong execution of varying inspirations is complete with relaxed trousers that fall in an effortless manner. Minimalist and quiet–much like the collection itself, Lemaire’s inclusion of the banded cummerbund provides not only the ideal completion, but perfect fall accessory.
