THE LOCATION: LA FONDATION MAEGHT.
Amidst the timeless art collection that has epitomized modernity for six decades, designer Simon takes us on a journey from Parisian growth to creative ambition. Against the backdrop of southern France’s charm, surrounded by Mediterranean pines and masterpieces from Giacometti, Braque, and Calder, the rond-carré transforms into a canvas of JACQUEMUS’ visionary spirit; surrealist twists defy bourgeois norms, creating an elemental expression that resonates with the essence of the brand’s evolution.
Bottom line? Jacquemus invites everyone to just WEAT THE ART. Suits and dresses mix in bonded harmony, shoulders speak volumes as tubular sleeves bring roundness to life, while outlines playfully trace straight or curvy paths along the body with asymmetry while geometric shapes pop unexpectedly, making every outfit a stylish surprise. Column dresses embrace sheer grace, countered by geometric structures that flirt with trousers, shirts take a wild turn with distorted edges, and sweaters become a playful trick, daring you to wear them single-sided.
Materials vary in different weights, from flowing mousseline to textured knit jacquard, crafting a tactile journey. Artistic eccentricity takes the stage with croco-embossed leather and trompe l’oeil tufts mimicking horse-like hair, nodding to surrealism with a bounce reminiscent of ostrich feathers.
The color palette is minimalist: black, white, stone, lipstick red, and banana yellow.
OUR SHOE CRUSH? JACQUEMUS X REPETTO: ‘LES ZIZ REPETTO JACQUEMUS’.
Ladylike elegance meets a playful spirit with the double-stacked slingback heels and pumps that dare to bare, revealing a cheeky peek of the foot above the shoe. Men’s thong sandals take a modern trompe l’œil approach, seamlessly integrating half-socks for a stylish twist. The iconic Repetto lace-up shoe undergoes a Jacquemus transformation, emerging as the trendsetting “Les Zizi Repetto Jacquemus” with a square silhouette perched atop a circular low heel.
Handbags this season boast sophistication with a dash of illusion: “Le Calino” wows with a gleaming metal wrist bracelet; “Le Vanity” flaunts a compact purse featuring a round body and square base; “Le Tourni” exudes elegance with a structured silhouette and front closure; while a deep bucket shape with twisting seams adds a touch of intrigue to your look.
