Christophe Lemaire Spring/Summer 2014

French designer, Christophe Lemaire’s latest summer collection presents denim in a new and refined aesthetic.

Earlier this month we highlighted Phillip Lim’s female capsule collection of muted denim shades and clean silhouettes that present the fabric in a new polished light. We recently came across a similar collection for men, from Parisian designer and artistic director of Hermés, Christophe Lemaire. For summer, the quiet, thoughtful designer presents a selection of nuanced reinterpretations of tailored and workwear styles for his namesakes label.

This season, Lemaire takes a step forward to the mainstream with denim, updating classic pleated chinos, unstructured blazers and elasticated pants in premium raw Japanese selvedge denims – a perfect fabric match to the designer’s relaxed fits. Other items like collarless workwear shirts, denim tees as well as his signature minimalist take on a five-pocket jean follow the same path as his previous season’s collection – timeless, casual-chic tailoring and wardrobe essentials that you will never get bored of.
