First (Lemaire) Autumn Dibs

Double-breasted jacket in silk (add a very bright shade of fuchsia to the picture). Belted, soft blouson in canary velvet. The most gorgeous sweater with puffy sleeves. Cropped chino pants in khaki. Over-sized, wool coat with military references behind it. Lemaire‘s first autumn drop is a delicious ‘hello’ to autumn-wardrobe-thinking. Just take a look at my favourites:

Men’s – Classics. Lemaire SS20

Slajd3-kopia 2

When so much is going on in menswear (especially this season), there might be a need for something classic. In this case, you can’t go wrong with Lemaire. Christophe Lemaire and Sarah Linh Tran‘s spring-summer 2020 look-book is the perfect balance of softened workwear and tailored essentials, all kept in a colour palette of powdery, earthy tones. Shirting and loose tops came in prints produced in collaboration with a marbling designer, originally a specialist on bookmaking. The collection subtly nodded to Rüdiger Vogler in 1974’s Wim Wenders film Alice in the Cities, but even not knowing that, you’re completely convinced by this line-up. That’s the power of Lemaire – references are low-key, uninvasive, and you’re focused on the clothes.

Lemaire in Paris

Ok, why Lemaire doesn’t offer any accomodation services (same question to Dries Van Noten…)? The brand’s flagship store in Le Marais district is too good to be true. Just like the clothes, which are poetry of cut and fit. And I think I fell in complete love with their new classic Croissant bag.
