The Jacquemus Fall 2019 show: What we thought

A future master and irresistible accessories. Stylist and creative consultant Johanna Ankelhed was invited to the hyped Jacquemus Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear show and reported back to The Whoman Journal.

 

 

Paris, France. February 25, 2019. 8pm. 

I was taken to the far outskirts of Paris and one could be surprised that it was only February as it felt like a mild summer night, when really it ought to still be winter. The heatwave experienced during the first day of Paris Fashion week was pleasing and the expectations were just as high in the dark Parisian night. A big industrial warehouse space was converted into “Place Jacquemus”. It was colourful, charming and transported us instantly to South of France. To Simon Porte Jacquemus’ France, his fantasia.

 

 

Now, Simon has a long journey ahead to be granted the same influence, but his ability to conjure a scene is evocative of the master’s.

 

The authenticity and charm of the set had not only me, but every guest in absolute awe when entering the on the outside so grim warehouse. Inside was a colourfully painted village, picturesque small houses in every colour of the rainbow, French balconies and actual lemon trees. There was even laundry hanging out to dry and fresh oranges in boxes. It felt very much like something that Karl Lagerfeld would have done, when creating his show spaces for the Chanel shows. Now, Simon has a long journey ahead to be granted the same influence, but his ability to conjure a scene is evocative of the master’s.

 

The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and joyful unlike many other shows during fashion week, where anticipation and seriousness can turn into a negativity and make fashion way more serious than it actually is. Before, during and after the show the audience clapped, shouted and whistled just as they would have done when going to a concert or sports game. Everyone where supporters of Simon Porte Jacquemus and it could be felt in the air. It was pure happiness and very much the spirit of Mr. Jacquemus himself.

They were irresistible and most definitely will be ripped off the shelves next season, trust my word.

 

As with most seasons, Jacquemus had his countryside childhood in mind—the films Mon Oncle and Les Demoiselles de Rochefort were some of the references. But with the clothes he took a more comprehensive approach than he did for Spring where most looks where very sexy and not particularly accessible during office hours. “I didn’t want people expecting from me only the sensuality, I have so many more things to say,” he said. The collection featured pantsuits, culottes, silky button-down blouses, airy fabrics, chunky knitwear teamed with skirts and beautiful coats. Utility references and workwear associations where seen and the colours where popping. Bright pink, vivid orange, green, red and azure blue, but there were also looks in all white.

 

The collection was called Les Collectionneuses, Jacquemus imagining his women as people who collect things, this fits so well into who I am personally (I love to collect beautiful things) and for that I envy Jacquemus ability to read and understand women even more. The accessories, in particular, echoed that idea. The accessories being one of Jacquemus absolute greatest assets having introduced us to the tiniest of bags and huge straw hats previous seasons, didn’t disappoint this season either. Here where the statement earrings in plexiglass, the clog-soled knee-high boots and bags so small that only your AirPods will actually fit.

 

They were irresistible and most definitely will be ripped off the shelves next season, trust my word.
