The designer took a midnight blue chintzy cotton and linen mix, previously seen in his men’s wear collection, and used it for boxer-style shorts, which were paired with an Alcantara blouson jacket with an elasticized waist. A midlength cotton poplin skirt with snaps down the side was slipped over a pair of fitted pants or a bodysuit, while an unstructured double-breasted men’s jacket was slung over Japanese-style work pants. “It’s always this idea of having six pieces that you can travel with,” Lemaire said.
