Simon Porte Jacquemus loves blue and white, stripes, the sun, fruit, curves, life, the 1980s and Marseille. Just 27 years old, this “Made in Provence” designer is bringing a breath of light, fresh air into the world of Parisian fashion. His sunny universe and brazen creations are now on display at the MuCEM, in the chapel in Fort Saint-Jean: through a window dotted with screens, hundreds of images, shapes, colours, creations and inspirations plunge us into the young designer’s private world. Like a virtual fashion show, he has developed a new type of exhibition, designed entirely from images and videos posted on his Instagram account.
Just 27 years old, he was born in the South of the France. This young designer who defends an “affordable fashion” received in 2014 the special prize of the jury at the LVMH price with his collection “The umbrellas of Marseille”. Since then, Jacquemus has developed his mark brilliantly by celebrating the provencal stylistic imagination as with his Summer collection “The Santons of Provence”. Marseille lifestyle Ambassador, he is the Guest of Honor of OpenMyMed 2017. Last 13 May, Jacquemus introduced his Summer collection “Les Santons de Provence” (Spring/Summer 2017) during a special show on Fort Saint-Jean’s Place d’Armes.
Discover the second chapter of “Jacquemus – Marseille, I Love You” at Marseille’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC). A double exhibition produced by the Mediterranean House of Fashion Trades (MMMM), as part of the OpenMyMed Festival.
