IfIf we thought that with lavender field fashion show in Provence last summer Simon Porte Jacquemus ‘broke’ the Internet and overtook fashion side of Instagram, we were way beyond wronged. Gigi Hadids’ iconic hair flip is overtaking every corner of social medias.
Simons’ proposition for long to come, yet already inspiring silhouettes are mostly dirty ivory linen, canvas like tones for both men and women. We could spot a pop of colour, perhaps nostalgic to the lavender show, although the venue this year had place in closed space, stadium at La Defense in western suburbs of Paris.
Jacquemus bets on simple and multi-occasion pieces like almost backless dresses, sophisticated crop tops and off shoulder cardigans, miniskirts and deep slits. Men were accompanying women on runway, wearing oversized puffed jackets, loose fit suits and matching sets styled with amazing unisex bags, flies open seam contrast trousers or layered up-sized coats and cross body bags which were screaming street style! The show could not happen without perfectly detailed shoes, both for men and women and micro and XXL bags, really characteristic for proportion master, Jacquemus.
Plus, BRAVO for inclusivity on the runway! Other brands should take a serious notes!
