With his Spring collection, Simon Porte Jacquemus rose to that level with a collection he’d gleaned from Provençal folk culture. That was natural for him, as a boy who’s constantly inspired by his childhood in the sunny South of France, but it also put him on a path connected back to Christian Lacroix’s shawl-collared, puff-sleeved, peasant-inspired heyday during the high ’80s of Parisian haute couture—with perhaps a touch of the theatrical smoky atmosphere that used to pervade Jean Paul Gaultier’s shows in the same decade. There was a big fake orange sun glowing at the end of the runway as Jacquemus’s fresh-cheeked, incredibly pretty girls walked out under huge traditional circular straw hats. Their clothes steadily proved how Jacquemus’s repertoire has widened. He cut wide pinstripe pants with deep cuffs, fit and flare linen coats, pencil skirts with asymmetric fan pleating, and numerous examples of the shirting he’s made a business out of—now with voluminous sleeves. Cult Parisian Label – Jacquemus showcases the must-have pants of the SS17 season. Tailored from navy wool, the Gardian high-rise pair has a wide-leg silhouette - style with sneakers and a chunky sweater or racer-back singlet for those day-to-night occasions - as seen on the current IT girls of the fashion industry, including, Kate Moss, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Nicole Richie, Kate Bosworth, Louise Roe, Olivia Palermo and Lily Aldridge. Jacquemus’ bustier beige/navy mini dress is an unquestionably feminine piece. It’s tie straps with contrasting bustier, enhances the flattering off-the-shoulder silhouette, and finished with an a-line shaped skirt for elegant movement. Ground the look for evening with subdued sandals. Playing with proportions this SS17 season, the Jacquemus off-the-shoulder top has wide, exaggerated sleeves, which are finished with button front closures. This cotton-poplin top is available in off-white and white with blue stripes is cut in a shoulder-baring silhouette that frames the décolletage and stays in place with discreet elasticated inserts. Style yours with jeans and sneakers. A fashion hit with all of the industry’s most influences, including, Kate Waterhouse, Nadia Fairfax, Halle Berry and Kate Moss. Using fashion to inspire and in turn communicate a story – for spring ’17, designer, Simon Porte Jacquemus created the v-neck shirt with button front closure, modeled by his current muse, Rose Van Bosstraeten. Cut and gathered to fit close through the body, the shirt is finished with ruching at the bust and exaggerated puffed sleeves, which are folded at the cuff. No SS17 season edit is complete without a long-sleeved trans-seasonal, crew neck shoulder top and Jacquemus’ contemporary take on knitwear is making headlines. Spun from ultra soft wool in refreshing navy striped and white hue, this sweater is cut for a flattering slim fit and has extra long sleeve complete with circle cut out at the chest to make a statement. This look is particularly cool tucked into wide-leg pants. Jacquemus is loved for its deconstructed, avant-garde silhouettes and sense of undone elegance. The red asymmetric ruffle skirt is the epitome of cool femininity. It falls in an asymmetric style, and is finished with a ruffled hem. Style yours nonchalantly with a white t-shirt and crossover-strap sandals. Luxury essentials with downtime ease are at the core of the collection, the ecru short-sleeved shirt is a sleek example: it’s cut with an open V-neck that leads to skewed button fastening, and is designed to fall effortlessly over the body – perfect for those summer vacations. Trimmed with cross over features, Jacquemus’ black and navy le cardigan top is classically feminine. Its knitted to a relaxed silhouette with wrist-skimming sleeves, and finished with button features. Slip it on over trousers and slide for a casual graphic look. Concluding the SS17 collection, Jacquemus’ La robe Marin dress references the label’s playful take on tailoring. Made in France from midnight-blue cotton, it has an oversize shape that’s is oversized in fit and features an open collar. Wear yours with sneakers.
