This season will be remembered, more than anything, as the season of the street style. No, it’s not the first time people dressed up for the cameras, not the first time bloggers flooded the shows (or at least the entrance of the shows) nor the first time people cared more about street style more than (some) runway shows but this was the season the power of streets was finally confirmed commercially and creatively. The most buzzed about and celebrated collections of the season were Vetements and Balenciaga, both in the hands of the same creative director, both all about the “streets”. Things finally turned the other way around, from streets to runways, now it’s time to wait for the next thing and meanwhile enjoy this new era, starting with the (many, many) best street style looks from Paris Fashion Week.
Every time a new Lemaire collection comes to life, I’m brutally reminded what I actually want to look like everyday, what I should look like everyday. Sure, I’d like to explore trends and love living in my sneakers & skinny jeans but I’d think of myself as the chicest woman on the planet had I looked like this all the time. Conveying a sensual minimalism with subtle changes every season (like the button detailed shirt in this one or the boob bag in the previous) Lemaire keeps on doubling as the style bible for the low maintenance minimalist.
