Designer Simon Porte Jacquemus!
Hello friends, I wanted to do a profile on a designer who has recently come to my attention. One that I feel you should all know.
I happened to be shopping on Ssense.com, when I came across JACQUEMUS! I was suddenly intrigued when his bold striped patterns and avant-garde silhouettes came across the screen. I am a sucker for a good striped garment (stripes are my kryptonite), so it was only fitting I take a closer look at these clothes. Ssense.com is known (in my mind) as the place for your premiere and contemporary designers. Go take a look, they are currently having their sale! Jacquemus is the perfect designer for this website. Ever since I discovered his clothing, I had to figure out who this fantastic designer was.
This my friends is Simon Porte Jacquemus. The creative genius behind Jacquemus! He is a self taught designer who started his own label at the young age of 19 after dropping out of ESMOD, while working for the Comme des Garçons boutique till 2013. Just recently, he walked away with the second place LVMH prize of €150,000. The LVMH prize is huge! LVMH stands for Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, for those who did not know. First place includes funding of €300,000 and a year long mentorship program, which designers Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of Marques’Almeida, won this year. Although in second place, Jacquemus will also receive a year long mentorship with LVMH. LVMH will help the designers redefine who their target market is and will ultimately make them a stronger brand. I’m sure we will see a stronger Jacquemus brand in a year. I can’t wait to see what it has in store for him!
Jacquemus, in my opinion, already seems to have a great creative vision. Take a look for yourself:
