JACQUEMUS Online StoreIf you follow up the current news in the fashion industry, you´ve probably already heard about the attention-getting brand Jacquemus. The French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus founded his eponymous label in 2009, based on his mother´s maiden name to honour the memory of her. But his story in the fashion industry wasn´t easy and typical at all.
Born in the south of France, Simon Porte Jacquemus spent his childhood surrounded by countryside, sun and nature which are now reflected in his Jacquemus collections.
His first ever designed piece was a skirt for his mother – and her wearing it changed the designer´s life. In the age of 19 Simon Porte launches the Jacquemus label, deciding to leave the fashion school in Paris after one-month stint and making his debut with a minimalistic collection.
Now, loved for his innovative minimalist style, that austere aesthetic was born of necessity back then. Not having enough money to afford a fitting model as well as letting off buttons and pockets meant to create minimal, slightly boxy styles that can adapt well to different bodies and also current trends. Today, Jacquemus offers collections with sophisticated contemporary minimalistic aesthetic that exude a youthful and sunny vibe.
Jacquemus´ obsession with South France, the impressions of its colors and striped prints, country sides and folk culture, are reflected in his womenswear and menswear collections as well as iconic accessories. Simon Porte sees fashion as a language to tell a story, positioning Jacquemus as a high-end fashion brand and a social-media phenomenon with a strong visual impact with incomparable campaigns, breath-taking fashion shows and inspiring Instagram feed.
