Leclaireur 17, Timeless Refinement

From hedonism to craftsmanship, Leclaireur’s 2017 Spring/Summer capsule collection was born with sobriety, quality and sensible fabrics in mind. As a start, seven shirts were created in collaboration with the best French and worldwide textile providers.

Each piece was conceived with artisanal fabrics and a sense of restraint, that of refined instincts, breathing a new freshness into creation, one shirt at a time.

Opening this mid-season collection, a cotton and jungle block wool jacquard lengthy shirt, whose fringes will electrify the most simple silhouette – and the night that goes with it.

Another play on textures… Firstly with the Leclaireur’s quilted cotton shirt, created in collaboration with Lyria, where a thick cotton thread is captured between two sheets of light cotton gauze, in a delicate homage to 20th century craftsmanship. Then comes the soothing softness of AGIRLS’ cotton jersey and alpaca wool blend, completed seamlessly by Cedric Jacquemyn’s parchment lamb skin vest and a pair of Miaoran pants in a laid-back and chic combination, highlighted by 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi sneakers.

A never-ending search for equilibrium and avant-garde has been Leclaireur’s endeavor, hence its affection for layering. Symbolic, hybrid, timeless at its core, the long shirt made of hemp, metal threads and frayed cotton blends, becomes an effortless dress when worn by a woman. Opened on high-waisted pair of Ziggy Chen pants, or Paul Harnden trousers paired with Ann Demeulemeester boots or Guidi shoes, it becomes more masculine, toying with proportions, enhancing esthete and laid-back character.
