As Paris Haute Couture Week draws to a close, the fashion world’s spotlight has turned en masse to Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the village perched on the Alpes Maritimes in the south of France. Simon Porte Jacquemus chose it as the place to present his new 2024 collection at the Maeght Foundation, a few kilometers from Nice, bringing together his famous friends Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, model (and girlfriend, it seems, of Leonardo DiCaprio) Vittoria Ceretti and Deva Cassel (daughter of Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel) who paraded on a platform set up among the works of Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Alexander Calder and Alberto Giacometti.
Unsurprisingly, the collection of 47 looks, feminine and masculine, was named “Les Sculptures” by the French designer (who himself grew up in the south of France, in Mallemort, not far from Marseille). The presentation featured leather dresses with rounded shoulders and outward-curved sleeves and models with fluffy hair in wavy or curly styles. Colors? White, red and cream. Much attention was paid to accessories such as the Le Petit Calino mini bag and Les Ovalo sunglasses.
