SIMON PORTE JACQUEMUS, PROTÉGÉ OF REI KAWAKUBO LAUNCHED HIS NAMESAKE LINE JACQUEMUS (A NOD TO THE DESIGNER'S MOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME) AT AGE 18, AFTER MOVING TO PARIS FROM HIS NATIVE SOUTH OF FRANCE. THE SELF-TAUGHT DESIGNER APPROACHES MODERNIST FRENCH WOMENSWEAR CHARACTERIZED BY DECONSTRUCTION AND EXAGGERATED PROPORTIONS. BRIGHT PRIMARY AND PASTEL COLOURS AND INVENTIVE GEOMETRIC CUTS FEATURE IN THE LABEL'S SIGNATURE. JACQUEMUS' SKILL AT INFUSING INNOVATIVE SHAPES WITH AN IRREPRESSIBLE SENSE OF YOUTH AND FEMININITY HAS WON CRITICAL ACCLAIM AS WELL AS A DEVOTED FOLLOWING: THE DESIGNER IS THE WINNER OF A SPECIAL JURY PRIZE FROM LVMH IN 2015, AND WAS A FINALIST FOR THE GROUP'S PRIZE FOR YOUNG DESIGNERS THE YEAR BEFORE.
