Simon Porte Jacquemus is a young designer from the south of France whose minimalist collections, but full of details and architectural patterns, are standing out in the current world of fashion.

In only five years, the designer is already considered by many as the brightest star among the newest members of the French fashion firmament.

His last show, ‘La Bomba’, took place at the Picasso Museum in Paris, where an event of this kind was held for the first time. The collection was inspired by the sun and the sea, the place near Marseille where he was born and, above all, his mother, whom he lost at an early age. In fact, Jacquemus is his maternal family name.

I was looking at a picture of my mother walking around the harbor in the summer. She had a scarf around her head, some ceramic earrings and a beach wrap tied around her waist. He was always smiling and happy. People still stop me in our village and say: Your mother? She was so beautiful!

His first fashion school was Comme des Garçons in Paris, where he was a salesman. Without a university education, Jacquemus learns as he practices. Not everything is perfectly executed, but the designer is at the forefront with his innate mastery of communication and image creation. And what gives it all consistency is its creative line of accessories. His shoes with asymmetrical heels (one square and one rounded) were a success this autumn and, in its last shows, the earrings were especially important, with a different shape in each lobe.

This month Vogue USA is dedicating a special to you in its pages that we recommend you to read. And we hope that you will be delighted to try on the designs of this young talent.
