“I don’t do clothes; I do stories.” Simon Porte Jacquemus explains to Vogue as he describes his approach to design. One look at the Limao jacket, and we can see why. Narrating his move from Salon-de-Provence in southern France to Paris, this zip-up fuses traditional tailoring primed for the capital with soft hues that reflect the laid-back lifestyle of the coast. Imagined from breezy linen, its cropped silhouette is balanced with padded shoulders and gold-toned hardware.
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.
