Fresh off the Runway: Jacquemus FW'19
Featuring Key Pieces You Have to Own
Unlike his previous works, designer Simon Porte Jacquemus went more into conceptual cuts with his Fall/Winter'19 collection. Although it's disappointing not to see the continuation of the art deco silhouettes (hopefully, just for now), we were definitely excited for the return of the IT accessory, Le Saq Chiquito. This time, it's even better.
Well, you might have already known about it- THIS was the very collection that debuted the teeniest handbag, Mini Chiquito, which went trending on IG before it even hit the runway! On that note, the runway pieces are finally launched online! Below, I have listed some of the key trends and looks that will be worth the gram.
Statement colour is officially a THING for this season. And designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is not going to leave that out for his collection. Considering that Jacquemus usually focuses on neutral tones, these bold colours used are deeply saturated and somewhat complementary to one another- surprisingly not too overpowering for one's liking!
In this collection, the designer also shares an insightful vision of Jacquemus' take on androgynous. Much of it was work-wear inspired pieces like pantsuits, double-face coats and culottes- which of course features the utility pockets. However, unlike classic tailored silhouettes, we can expect a re-interpretation that includes a much looser fit and more buttons to hold up the look. Taking the industrial look a little further, the models are also seen strolling down the runway with Slouchy knee and thigh-long wader boots.
There is never a shortage of prints when it comes to Fall. Except for this time around, its all about abstract prints at Jacquemus. In juxtaposition with a large-scale floral motif, the prints are mainly coloured in monochromatic or complementary shades to balance in a softer look.
When it comes to bags, Jacquemus was sure not to disappoint his followers this season. Elevating one's of Jacquemus's cult favourites, the Tiny Le Chiquito, the brand continues to create variations of handbags that are either extraordinarily tiny or massive!
