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.
