Jacquemus to stage next show in Arles
After travelling to Hawaii in March, Jacquemus is going back to its native Provence for its next show. Simon Porte Jacquemus, the designer who founded the French ready-to-wear label and hails from the small town of Mallemort, between Marseilles and Avignon, will present the Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection with a show in Arles, in the south of France, on June 27.
Three years after staging a show in a lavender field in Valensole, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region, Porte Jacquemus is going back to his roots, returning to sunny southern France, since 2009 the main source of inspiration for his fresh, sensual creations.
The label’s new collection for men and women, called ‘Le Papier’, will be available for purchase immediately after the show on the Jacquemus e-shop, as the label confirmed to FashionNetwork.com. For the occasion, Jacquemus will also unveil a few items from the collaboration with US sportswear giant Nike.
Porte Jacquemus launched his label in 2009, aged 19, and has since enjoyed unprecedented success with his colourful, cheerful brand of fashion. Some of the label’s accessories, like the famous tiny handbags and the giant straw hats have been instant best-sellers.
Jacquemus has more than 4.6 million followers on Instagram and employs 100 people, generating a revenue of approximately €25 million. The label recently appointed its first managing director, Bastien Daguzan, an external hiring.
