The glint from his deep-blue eyes said millions as designer Christophe Lemaire took his final bow at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Saturday. After a 10 year run at LACOSTE, Lemaire is to become the successor to Jean-Paul Gaultier at another timeless French institution, Hermes. In this final showing, Lemaire shined through once again with his talent, tapped into the root of the Bauhaus movement without deviation from LACOSTE’s core theme. The result was blocks of vibrant colors integrated with hues of white and black. The collection was also a retrospective of sort on Lemaire’s works with LACOSTE, a fitting tribute indeed.
