Officine Generale’s Pierre Maheo is known for keeping it simple while tricking it with styling. Those sentiments underscore what the collection upholds: a languid fundamentality that didn’t go so minimal that it disengages the eye.
The beautifully cast show opens with a black-and-white toned palette, well-tailored foulards, and loose, almost pajama-esque shirting. In addition, waistbands were elasticized while socks and garters were knee-high. It merges undone and done up nicely, but fell, impression-wise, on the simpler side of things, which is exactly Mahéo’s intention.
