Soomin Ha reports on Les Hommes Femme S/S 2009

Dear Shaded Viewers,

What happens when you marry geometry with cool draping? The les Hommes woman is a little icy, very sensual and never vulgar. They desire and are desired but always in a subtle kind of way. The inspiration for this collection was 18th century historical womens costumes from a technical point of view. It was the geometry and the modernity of the blueprints that intrigued Les Hommes.


Contradiction of radical hard lines merging together with sensual drapery has become the signature of the brand. The silhouette focuses this season on the hips and shoulders.
