This week I stopped by the PR Consulting press day to have a closer looks at what some of my favourite brands have in store for SS14. One these favourites of mine is Exemplaire, a French label which prides itself in its subtle designs and excellent quality – what we now call 'everyday luxury'. They first launched witch a cashmere collection produced in a limited number, which added to the luxurious feel. They have since introduced fine leather goods – jackets and small accessories produced in the softest, lightest leather.
I fell in love with the brand, its philosophy and their super products from the moment I first laid hands on one of their jumpers. Their latest offering for the new season consists of slightly lighter knits best worn over tees but equally as practical for the colder seasons.
The seemingly ordinary pieces also have a perfect fit. Getting away from some of the boxy, baggy even, fits of classic jumpers offered by many other luxury brands, Exemplaire is all about a fitted silhouette, which is much more contemporary.
I hear the brand is soon to expand into ready-to-wear territory – it will be excellent, no doubt – and will also soon be opening a stand-alone store in Paris.
In the meantime, you can shop Exemplaire at Dover Street Market in London and on Mr Porter.
