No longer cozied up on Paris’ Left Bank, Pierre Mahéo’s Officine Générale found itself a home across the river in Oscar Niemeyer’s Espace Niemeyer, a building so spectacularly Sixties that it has stood the test of time and influenced a collection this is productive and realistic mixed with immense nostalgia. Inspired by a bomber jacket that had belonged to his grandfather, Mahéo used Niemeyer’s timeless architecture to catapult his collection into a season that transcended weather. Filled with classic silhouettes and menswear staples, the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was a flagship for the label: a collection that fused Mahéo’s remarkable realism with a spectrum of camel, anthracite, glacier blue, raspberry, olive green and – for the first time since the label’s launch – black. This season, that wasn’t the only significant introduction: Herringbone outerwear and alpaca wool sweaters were certainly among the collection’s breakout looks.
