For the Fall-Winter 2020 collection, Lemaire designed a capsule wardrobe based on drawings by Mexican folk art artist Martín Ramírez. The wardrobe is composed of a a blanket-like cape, leather breastplate, a blouse dress, a blouse, a wrap skirt, a handkerchief skirt and boots.
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.
