Lemaire's simply chic PFW show

Lemaire's simply chic PFW show

Christophe Lemaire went simplistic chic at Paris Fashion Week.

The designer showed his Autumn/Winter 15 collection in the French capital this morning, sticking to a largely muted palette.

Think grey marl, white beige and navy on sleek outerwear, cowl neck jumpers and tailored trousers - the kind of clothes you might spy during the commute on an enviably high-fashion businesswoman.

One model wore entirely dark blue, sporting an oversized overcoat and pumps in the colour, teamed with leather gloves.

There was also a nude, form-fitting sweater, tucked into a long woollen wrap skirt and finished off with smart leather boots.

Another office-friendly outfit consisted of a khaki cowl neck jumper, layered over a white shirt and teamed with pleated grey trousers.

Fans of dresses could be appeased with a chunky-strapped long frock in grey, teamed with ankle-strap heels a shade lighter. A leather belt was tied around the middle to cinch in the waist. There was also a navy slack dress with a low neckline, which was worn over a cream t-shirt.

Ponchos were also on the menu, with a textured version draped over a cream dress and a chunky red one over a grey trouser suit.

Models' hair and make-up was largely practical, again the kind a working woman would most likely opt for. There were low-slung ponytails, side partings and slick, straight 'dos.

Maybe this wearable collection is a sign of what's to come for high-street shoppers, as Christophe and his design partner Sarah-Linh Tran yesterday announced they are teaming up with Uniqlo on a line.

Vionnet and Alexis Mabille are among those still to show at Paris Fashion Week today.
