Jacquemus’ menswear line sees the French designer effortlessly translating the intuitive design approach of his women’s collections into the sartorial language of contemporary menswear. Showcasing the designer’s innate ability to synthesize lived spaces into a streamlined set of ready-to-wear and accessories, the Jacquemus man conjures the same elusive, worldly charm that has spirited the label’s esteemed womenswear counterpart. Meticulous fabrication and playful tailoring channels a free-spirited sense of experimentation, bringing wools, traditionally associated with autumnal dress codes, and avant-garde silhouettes, oft sequestered to cosmopolitan settings, to the beaches of ‘le Midi’ in a move that adds an unforeseen breadth of options to estival outfitting. The label’s debut menswear collection, christened ‘Le Gadjo’, a masculine term of address colloquial to Southern France, chisels an archetype that effortless uniques stoic athleticism with soft-hued chivalry, further contextualized by the bright palette and balmy textures of the garments themselves. Proposing unfussy shorts, playfully patterned button-ups, and seasonally fluid sweaters, Jacquemus menswear is a welcome elaboration on the designer’s ongoing commitment to crafting a wearable form of joie-de-vivre.
