Lately, I’ve been pushing myself to keep up with the latest runway shows and fashion releases.
I’ve never been that great at keeping up with these things due to my hectic schedule…
But, in equal efforts to become a well-rounded stylist- studying fashion is necessary.
My favorite piece of reviewing new collections has to be the way in which the designers decides to exhibit the collection.
From the music chosen for the runway, to the styling of the garments, to the venue chosen for the show…
It all plays a part.
I use Style.com to zero in on various designers and to keep up with the various released that happen daily within the industry.
Last night, I visited the website and stumbled across the collection of French designer, Christophe Lemaire.
After doing my research, I learned that he started off as a stylist assistant, prior to working for huge names such as Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent and Thierry Mugler.
He later decided to start his own fashion label, showcasing his pieces that were clean-cut and tailored. The pieces were sold in small boutiques, until Lemaire took a position with the brand, Lacoste in 2001.
Lemaire was appointed to his position with Hermes, prior to being able to fully focus on his own collection. Fast-forwarding to today, Lemaire is welcoming his evolution as a designer and a fashion extraordinaire.
The Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear line was definitely a sight to see.
Especially if you’re one who can appreciate the use of monochrome, clean lines, and layering within fashion.
After viewing the entire runway show and individual photographs of each look, I saw that the collection was created for a woman who is career driven, knows exactly what she wants, and is on the move.
That’s why I admire this collection.
The first thing that really drew me in was the color palette.
You guys know the love affair that I’m having with neutrals, at the moment.
Pieces are worn effortlessly, and seem fairly easy to maintain.
Fabrics used to create each piece appear to be simple, clean and easy to the touch.
Although, the pieces were created with a straight-forward mindset, each look held a key sense of volume and a distinct direction with the use of shapes.
All pieces from the collection seem to be interchangeable. I’d definitely mix and match within the collection.
I’d be laced in these threads at any given time, just say the word.
Lemaire outdoes himself with this one…
Wouldn’t you agree?
