The scenario of the Université René Descartes anticipated what was confirmed later on the runway;  you can call it a young collegiate, when the dresses could be easily appropriate to a post-graduate woman or older, mature one, in one world a versatile, not age-oriented collection, that emphasize “the woman” – independent, practical, very rooted in reality, strong and progressive, but who still has a lot of imagination, so consequently curious intellectually, a big music-, art- and cinema lover. Evoking Victorian times and the 70´s, this unique combination still expressd that femininity and romance that we saw “debuting” in Lemaire´s S/S 2016 collection, but this time without bared-shoulders or legs , it´s winter season after all , but more “wrapped”  into mystique.  This was also a collection when more details than usual “popped” out. From not so long ago more-rigorous, monastic-pure lines, now turned into even more softer silhouettes and proportions, without losing that typical Lemaire grace and chicness. I especially love the idea of Christophe and Sarah-Linh to soften and enriched every outfit with interesting details, like petal-like ruffled collar, bell-sleeved blouses, loads of black buttons contrasting a white-crisp shirt, new volumes in the tricot knits or even for example the fluidity of pants in contrast with some more rigid-look, bold top-wear. Love the way how the duo is evolving its woman by maintaining the core and the soul of the brand intact.
