Growing up in the south of France has left a lasting impression on designer Simon Porte Jacquemus. Often citing his home as the inspiration behind his collections of laid-back silhouettes, the line-ups are as suited to a night-out in Saint Tropez as they would be prancing through Provence’s lavender fields. A case in point? Le Sweatshirt. Crafted from organic cotton, it’s embroidered with the brand’s moniker at the chest. C’est cool, non?
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.
