Paris Fashion Week: Jacquemus, Paskal
The young designer first introduced the collection as a part of Fashion Week in Paris. On the podium, the designer presented real summer. Instead of the sun, brightly lit soffits, careless hairstyles of models, lack of make-up and colorful outfits.
In the collection of Jacquemus you could see soft, draped asymmetrical silhouettes. The designer noted that creating the collection, he was inspired by the image of the mother. The fashion designer was brought up in a village outside his native Marseilles.
“I was looking at a picture of my mother, walking along the port in the summer,” – he explained. “She had a scarf wrapped around her head, and these ceramic earrings – and a pareo tied around the body. She always smiled and was very happy. People still stop me in the village and say: “Your mother? She was so beautiful! “, – recalls the designer.
He lost his mother at early age. And he devoted his career to her.
“You see, Jacquemus is the name of my mother,” – he said, when the models surrounded him at the end of the fashion show. “She was shy and she was sexy. It will always be about her, I do not care! It’s me!”.
