PARIS FASHION WEEK / — After the success of their collaboration for the “La Bomba” video, JACQUEMUS and the Woolmark Company have announced their next step, with winter collection “Le Souk”, presented yesterday at the Petit Palais in Paris.
Designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is fervently devoted to using wool, and has worked closely with the Woolmark teams to find the most innovative fabrics that would most closely fit with the collection’s themes: sun and warmth in winter.
Like the sensation of light and physical comfort in winter that the designer experiences in the course of his regular travels in Morocco.
“Often, after a fashion show, I go to Morocco. I ride my motorbike. I ride so much that at the end of the day my shirts smell of petrol. This winter I lost myself in the sukhs once again, with just one thing on my mind: making my next summer here. I went back to Paris, and I ended up making my winter of it. Without waiting, a warm winter. I’m happy to be taking the next step in my relationship with Woolmark, their expertise and support in finding the perfect wools for my inspirations has allowed me to expand my creative horizon.”
