Balancing realism with a sense of the fantastic, Jacquemus designs pieces characterized by drama and sensuality. From oversized straw hats that discard a sense of proportion, to slinky silhouettes that reinvent cliché shapes, his clothing and accessories embody a modern woman with a sense of imagination and confidence.
Simon Porte Jacquemus founded his French ready-to-wear label in 2009, using his mother’s maiden name to honor her memory. Having been nominated for the LVMH Prize and awarded a special jury prize in 2015, he has not only received critical acclaim, but has garnered a fiercely devout following from women the world over.
An emotional designer, Simon Porte Jacquemus draws inspiration from his personal life—from beloved figures to his hometown Marseilles. From oversized straw hats, to sensual shirting, to emphatic skirts, his ready-to-wear offering balances the quintessential French girl with a modern, undefinable woman.
