jacquemus autumn/winter 15
Deconstructed garments? Check. Shoeless models? Of course. Paper masks covering their faces? You bet. In a marked departure from his more commercially minded work, Simon Porte Jacquemus’ autumn/winter 15 collection is a surreal meditation on form and a clear reminder of why he’s nominated for this year’s LVMH Prize. From the glove-shaped necktie to the one-armed jacket, the clothes were angular, conceptual, and to the point of whimsical obscurity. As for the models, their faces were either totally hidden by paper masks or had scribbled eyes, mouths and noses painted onto the side of their own faces. Utterly bizarre and bizarrely brilliant.
