Paris: The brand now known as Lemaire – a new name to highlight the collaborative effort between designers Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran – stayed true to its roots by presenting a timeless collection of luxurious wardrobe staples. Subtle tweaks elevated classic-influenced shapes – oversized DB coats were re-worked in lambswool, military parkas sported oversize pockets and flat front trousers were cropped to ankle lengths. Outerwear volumes were increased this season, underpinning the laid-back attitude of Lemaire’s man. Tailored suits came in boxy proportions and dressed-down with relaxed cardigans or tank tops. Eclectic yet approachable. – Diego Sanchez
