Christophe Lemaire has an exceptionally confident eye when it comes to the idea of understated luxury. Well-known for a simple elegance, the designer’s final collection for the house of Hermès was a splash of pure and easy luxury, a continued expression of the values he has been holding on to for the past four years. A sand covered runway and a staged sunset that shone through lightweight curtains, heralded the idea of wanderlust and travelling - an ever-present theme at Hermès. Dresses subtly wrapped around the neck, tailored capri jeans and leather embossed shorts mixed with slightly oversized blouses created a mood reminiscent of an elegant African safari adventure. A master of simplicity, Christophe Lemaire will be replaced by the former creative director of The Row and the equally puristic Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski.
