Simone Porte Jacquemus doesn’t often stray far from his roots in the sunny south of France (apart from last season’s runway on the far-flung Hawaiian coastline). Returning to his homeland for AW22, the Le Papier collection was presented from the salt-rock mountains of Arles and included the La Casquette Rond baseball cap. Crafted from breathable cotton and stamped with a branded plaque on the front, its topstitched brim offers protection from the glaring French sun.
Pared down and minimalist, self taught French designer Simon Porte aims for the essence in his design ethos. His work features in publications like Refinery29 and InStyle.
