Where fashion sometimes runs the risk of being deemed too avant garde or convoluted for any actual wear, Lemaire aims to solve that with a dose of practical form-fitting lines. And their Fall-Winter 2021 Collection is no different, embodying their signature approach toward structural, everyday fashion.

Their newest collection, handled by creative directors Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran, brings a Parisian sophistication and cosmopolitan sensibility to street wear and pedestrian outfits. Every single item in the collection is instantly accessible and appropriate for scoping the high city streets. None of the items are impractical or necessarily risky, more so looser takes on traditional silhouettes.

Speaking of which, the collection emphasizes flowy garments and loose fits, with each outfit combination paired with a loose fitting shirt, an oversized coat, flared pants, or any of the like. Shapes take a backseat to conscious bundling and layering, but that doesn’t imply a loss of tailoring. Each item is structured and has clean lines and form that allows the wearer to layer clothing without the fear of losing a distinct silhouette.

Earthy, bush tones and pastels take precedence in the collection, with blacks, bottle greens, sandstones, tans, and whites dominating the palette. There’s a clear nod toward military fabrics and styles with the shapes and colors of several of the items, particularly with the bomber leather jackets. Clean solid colors and the occasional fur pelts are highlighted to allow for easy combination creations between the collection, with very minimal color blending involved.

The collection comes via a runway show depicted through a film by Jordane Chouzenoux that features several of the models simply walking in conflicting directions, without any clear structure. It mimics what you’d see on any busy city street, people simply walking by you and allowing you a momentary glimpse of their clothes, an attempt to bring forth where Lemaire’s collections truly belong: on the busybody individual with a vibrant outside life that emphasizes a chic utility.
