After the train wreck of banality that was the Louis Vuitton menswear show (please read Amy Odell’s piece on the event, accurately titled Pharrell for Louis Vuitton Is the Marvel Movie of Fashion Shows) it was palette cleansing to watch the new LEMAIRE collection.
Amy Verne’s take over on Vogue sums up the collection succinctly:
The current (increasingly tiresome) infatuation with quiet luxury would seem to make Lemaire more relevant than ever. But only Lemaire has built so much versatility into its luxury. And the brand will continue to exist this way—well beyond the latest sneakers and store designs—no matter the trend.
That’s exactly what makes this collection feel so special. These are clothes which, if you saw someone wearing them on the street, you may do a double take. There a chic, effortlessness to the pieces, an extra ordinary quality. It’s so rad to see Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran continue to raise the bar on easy essentials. If I could dress like this every day I would, especially as I get older.
