LEMAIRE FW 2023: MADE FOR REAL-LIFE
Nov 14, 2023
Lemaire designers, Sarah-Linh Tran and Christophe Lemaire, opted for a pragmatic elegance this fall, showcasing an array of cold-weather looks that strike the right balance between chic and cozy. The overall mood is relaxed, with an emphasis on unconstrained ease. Contrasts in materials, textures, and weights form free-flowing layering that counters structured and deconstructed, pairing fluid fabrics with nubby knits, shearling with suiting, shiny over timeworn finishes. Cocoon-like padded vests, quilted jackets, or puffers are purposefully kept light, silk pajamas are transformed into suits, a double-breasted jacket becomes a cardigan, and vice-versa, a coat morphs into a cardigan. With a real-life allure, each look makes the wearer feel like the real protagonist in any situation required by their daily planner.
