A DAILY ELEGANCE WITH A SENSUAL TOUCH

 



On June 19, 2024, at its headquarters on 11 Places des Vosges in the Marais district of Paris, Lemaire showcased the S/S 2025 collection, a highlighted juxtaposition of rugged and delicate elements, featuring graceful and layered ensembles contrasted with robust cotton drill and leather, as well as more structured workwear-inspired silhouettes. A daily elegance with a sensual touch.

Everything started in the summer of 1975 when 41-year-old Giorgio Armani sold his blue Volkswagen Beetle to fund a new fashion business. Renting a tiny office, he brought on board a young secretarial student, Irene Pantone, and a charismatic showman from Tuscany, Sergio Galeotti, to handle sales. Together, they launched a menswear collection, followed by one for women, and both received great acclaim for the simplicity and elegance of Armani’s clothes.

"I HAD THE BLESSING OF MARTIN MARGIELA"




"...and psychologically I felt I was doing the right thing for the house."

This year marks the tenth anniversary of John Galliano leading Maison Margiela. His return to signature theatricality at an Artisanal show in Paris in January set the stage for a successful year, followed by a documentary release and high-profile collaborations.
