French fashion designer Jacquemus declares his love for Marseille
He loves blue and white, he loves the sun and stripes, and he also loves the French port city of Marseille. At just 27 years old, Simon Porte Jacquemus is the guest of honour at the Open My Med fashion event, the brainchild of the Mediterranean House of Fashion Specialisms.
