For SS20, Jacquemus nestled its runway collection within fields of lavender. Fast forward a couple of years, and the French label continues its love affair with the pastoral, experimenting with more rustic settings such as wheat fields, which call for one thing: loosely tailored layers and architectural silhouettes. Take the Le Haut Noué top, for example. Knitted from a breezy cotton blend with capped sleeves and a knotted front, it channels Southern French insouciance.
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.
