Jacquemus climbs the steps at Villa Malaparte

Simon Porte Jacquemus invited the close associates of his House to a special anniversary show. It was on the roof of the iconic Villa Malaparte in Capri that the designer presented his Fall-Winter 2024-2025 collection.

 

One thing that can never be taken away from Simon Porte Jacquemus is his ability to create an event. Just after the presentation of his “Les Sculptures” collection at the Fondation Maeght last January, the designer had already announced an anniversary show for the 15th anniversary of his brand.

 

To mark the occasion, Jacquemus flew to the island of Capri. A jewel of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the place, synonymous with the Italian “dolce vita,” itself houses another gem: the Villa Malaparte. Built between 1938 and 1943 for the Italian writer Curzio Malaparte by Adalberto Libera, the house is an architectural feat. Perched on the side of a cliff, it notably served as a backdrop for Le Mépris (1963), the work of Jean-Luc Godard featuring Brigitte Bardot and Michel Piccoli. “It was this film that inspired the creation of my brand,” declared Simon Porte Jacquemus. The villa thus seems to be the perfect place to celebrate the anniversary of his label and to present his Fall-Winter 2024-2025 collection.

A Radiant Collection

 

 

More minimalist, this collection marks a turning point in Jacquemus’s identity. From the opening by model Anok Yai, the first look captivates with its apparent simplicity: an ecru robe revealing the shoulders of its wearer, a nod to the character Camille played by Bardot in Godard’s film. Approximately 700 hours of work were required by the ateliers to create this piece entirely embroidered with feathers.

 

The use of colors is done with subtlety, featuring azure blues with a delicate transparency, sun yellow applied on a calfskin skirt, and even black proving that it can adapt to the summer season.

 

 

For men, the silhouettes also emphasize monochrome. Inspired by Giorgio Armani and especially his creations from the 1990s, Simon Porte Jacquemus says he wanted to turn towards simple elegance. This results in scarlet red or grass green outfits always featuring a refreshing contrasting accessory.

 

Echoing the distinctive lines of the Villa Malaparte, geometric patterns appear here and there throughout the collection. A zebra motif is first notable on a peplum top, then appears on a pair of pumps and on Le Bombola, a new bucket bag model with asymmetrical lines enhanced by a golden ring. Faithful to his love for accessories, Jacquemus also reveals Le Spiaggia, a round or square basket made entirely of raffia.
