Taking place at the Paris La Défense Arena, Simon Porte Jacquemus showcased his Pre-Fall 2020 women’s collection and Fall/Winter 2020 men’s collection at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.
The collection was inspired by a time when Simon was a child making a skirt for his mother: ‘’When I was 7 I took a linen curtain and made a skirt for my mother’’, said the designer. ‘’I wanted to go back to that sense of minimalism. It’s the first time I’m thinking of a collection like it would be my last. I wanted to make a minimal wardrobe, a wardrobe that would be timeless, beige and pure’’.
The collection seamlessly blends casual styles, like the checkered anorak or the denim overalls, with more traditional silhouettes, like suits and coats, offering a modern perspective of timelessness. This concept was echoed throughout the entire collection with a touch of french elegance – breezy linen textiles, semi-loose fits and light washes. And for men, he proposed dapper trousers which were essentially just linen cargo pants, various button shirts and shoulder bags also offer appeal that transcends any gender boundaries.
