Christophe Lemaire RTW Fall 2014

Known for his precise tailoring and oversize outerwear, Christophe Lemaire turned his hand to knitwear for fall, featuring layered outfits in monochrome shades such as khaki, navy and black.


The knits were either piled high — a ribbed khaki yak-wool cardigan, sweater and skirt worn with a thick scarf and gaiters — or pared back, as with a high-necked pullover dress in putty-colored cashmere.


Lemaire broke up the warm winter looks with more streamlined efforts including alluring fold-over skirts with box pleats on the side or front. One of these, in black cotton, was paired with a navy collarless silk shirt and a long vest for a look that straddled the seasons — increasingly appropriate, given the unpredictable weather in Europe.


A final sequence of lightweight basics — trenchcoats, wrap dresses and dress coats — appeared somewhat out of synch with the rest of the show but were still in line with Lemaire’s long-held belief in providing timeless staples for women who favor personal style over fashion.
