Monochromatic layering at Christophe Lemaire

Paris: Monochromatic dressing flooded the catwalk at Christophe Lemaire’s exquisite Spring 2015 presentation. Crisp layers of summer weight fabrics were well-suited for classic tailoring and long layers. New shirt treatments in the form of pull-over and capelet shapes were a refreshing update to the traditional button-front. Coats and dresses in trapeze silhouettes with fullness towards the bottom, sumptuously swooshed as they went by. –Deirdre Pérez
