i’d like to think that i’m in the know about what’s going on in the design world, whether it’s interiors or fashion. a name i had not heard before until the recent spring 2017 collections in paris is jacquemus. i thought the collection was pretty and innovative.
simon porte jacquemus, the creative director of jacquemus, is very young and very talented. he was raised in the south of france. i could see this influence on the his spring 2017 collection– the straw hats, peasant blouses, eyelet… i could also see a bit of influence from the 80’s, the strong shoulders and the asymmetrical shapes…glimpses of lacroix, a little of ysl…..
i think this collection was a real stand out. mark my word, everyone is going to be talking about jacquemous. what will they be saying? they’ll be talking about the feminine take on the 80’s, and it was pretty.
