DESIGNER TO WATCH: JACQUEMUS
Parisian designer Simon Porte Jacquemus channels his youthful sense of whimsy in a standout spring/summer collection featuring bright hues, graphic prints and backwards caps. These are the staples of the Jacquemus girl: easy, breezy and beautiful.
IN LIVING COLOUR “For me, fashion is always about colour. I was a colourful boy in the south of France, always in pink and orange. When I moved to Paris, I went totally black. It wasn’t me, so I’m back in colour.” STORYTIME “For me, at a runway show, something must happen. It’s more of an experience than a lookbook on Style.com. I don’t do clothes; I do stories. I’m not focused on doing a perfect, beautiful shirt; it’s more about an energy and a character.” SWEET INSPO “The Jacquemus woman goes on vacation to the south of France; she plays tennis, she falls in love and she eats ice cream.” Two scoops, please!
