For its Fall-Winter 2021 collection, LEMAIRE is pleased to present its latest collaboration with A Flamenco Catharsis, a creative direction studio focused on the world of flamenco. The season's pieces — including the printed dropped collar dress in dry silk — are set in a film by Robi Rodriguez and brought to life by dancers José Maya and Patricia Guerrero.
As a special guest for the Fall-Winter 2021 collection presentation, Helena Hauff marked the seasonal show with her mysterious and charismatic presence. The electronic DJ and producer tells us about herself : from the first sound memories from her mother’s womb, to her fortuitous but determining meeting with Radioactive Man, her love for medieval paintings and her first fashion show for LEMAIRE.
Since summer 2015, LEMAIRE has been developing original prints derived from marbled papers and watercolors. The spontaneous quality of these techniques gives birth to expressive and fluid patterns. Look closely, and you might see a wide open sky, shifting landscapes, fabulous animals or even faces. The arrangement of these various patterns, with their nebulous outlines and singular textures, compose a panorama of optical illusions to spark your imagination and reflect back your own playfulness. LEMAIRE and Atelier La Folie have reimagined classical decorative marbling, simplifying traditional patterns into more refined, contemporary motifs.
Since July 2, 2021, Dover Street Market Beijing has invited LEMAIRE to stage an ephemeral installation open to public. Thought around the concept store’s emblematic elephant, this installation is the result of a LEMAIRE’s first collaboration with Chinese artist Lin Yan.
Based on figurative and abstract drawings by Mexican artist Martín Ramírez [1895-1963] LEMAIRE has created a capsule wardrobe in light fabrics. This collection is inspired by the clear-line illustrations, Madonna, Boat and Canal, Landscape, Horse and Rider 1 and 2, faithfully transposed to their original format. In an atmosphere of fawn tones, the printed motifs play hide and seek in imaginary topographies and the characters metamorphose to the rhythm of moving bodies.
LEMAIRE presents new molded leather accessories with clean and soft lines, handcrafted in the region of Cadiz in Spain. Expending on the idea of bags as abjects, this new line of Molded offers five pieces that honor the singular and ancestral know-how from the town of Ubrique.
For its Fall-Winter 2020 collection, Lemaire is designing a wardrobe based on drawings by Mexican artist Martín Ramírez which is composed of a leather breastplate, a blouse dress, a pair of boots and a wrap skirt, a blanket-like cape, a blouse and a foulard skirt.
There’s something friendly about the shape, which one could easily imagine serving as a conversation starter between two strangers in the street or elsewhere. The Carlos bag is a magic lamp, an object of erotic projections that stimulates the touch and the imagination. Its unctuous, glossy shape resembles a gigantic, generously proportioned clamshell. The bag is the result of a collaboration between the artist Carlos Peñafiel and Lemaire.
For this collaboration Lemaire is revealing a capsule collection that showcases key products of the brand and objects from Out of Museum.
