Paris Fashion Stories, Episode 2: Summer Of Love
Issued on: Modified:
Ready-to-wear, summer 2019: France's Simon Jacquemus has always had only one muse: his mother! He has never went to fashion school, prefers simple things to theatrical concepts, but can boast of being one of the greatest young commercial successes of the decade.
With Simon Jacquemus, fashion is practical, sexy... and extremely sincere. Everything seems so simple in his designs. The sun is shining, it's always sunny. And unusually, he's acclaimed by both the closed world of fashion and the public.
Anthony Vaccarello, who runs the Saint Laurent studio, has his models strut their stuff on the water of the Trocadero fountain, in the shade of palm trees lit up by the Eiffel Tower. His summer 2019 collection is a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent, mixed with a sexy rock spirit that's highly contemporary.
