This series of portraits delves into the lasting connection between LEMAIRE pieces and those who wear them in their daily life. Each video is an intimate vision of clothing expressed
by vibrant personalities, close collaborators, regular customers and artists faithful to LEMAIRE.
This is their space of expression.
This portrait of Ema Pradère is the first of many. The painter and ceramist has built up a war-
drobe filled with LEMAIRE pieces acquired over the years. In this video, she opens up about
the effect of time on the clothes.
She pulls a thread between a jumper and the kintsugi technique, the Japanese art of repair-
ing broken ceramics with a blend of lacquer and gold, silver or platinum. « The break is not concealed. It is quite the opposite. Since we are embellishing its fracture, it is a way of expres-
sing how important the object is to us. »
