Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Time goes by so fast. Trends change just as fast. Evolution or no revolution, that is the modus eperandi. "The more I work with the same idea in mind, the more I find ways to make it work", Christophe Lemaire said at the presentation. And accordingly, there was much here that looked like timeless pieces : the rounded shapes, the multi-pleated pants (which the designer has been doing for season after season, long before the current vogue for the style). Christophe Lemaire plants his designs at the unlikely nexus of workwear and new wave, managing to reference both David Byrne's big suits from "Stop making sense" (in a passage of gray tailoring) and Chinese workers' uniforms. For this season, he merely pushed forward. He's incorporating more color than ever before, and while the palette remains on the whole slightly dusky, there was the welcome addition of ocher and mauve. A paint-drip print, inspired by David Hockney, pointed at new lightness ahead. Light, in weight and in feeling, was the word for his first forays into denim. Christophe Lemaire cut a boxy, oversized tee-shirt, a pajama-style top, a vest, and pants from dark, tissue-thin Japanese fabric in indigo and smoke gray. And despite being personally "very anti-shorts", he débuted his first pair, a pleated, belted gabardine version that hit just below bermuda level -"almost a colonial one", he called it. Slowly but surely, the times, they are a-changing. "I wouldn't mind going even further", the designer said.
