Last summer, Jacquemus nestled its runway collection within fields of lavender. This summer, the French label turns to the more rustic setting of a wheat field to evoke its romantic side – expect lightweight layers and muted palettes. Take the Le Gilet Noué top, for example. Knitted from a breezy cotton blend with a plunging neckline and knotted front, it channels the typical Southern French insouciance the label is known for.
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.
