In Jacquemus’s post-pandemic world, it’s not the usual fairytale lavender fields and wheat fields. Titled “La Montagne” (translating to “the mountain”), it’s a story of progression from naivety, exploration, and re-defining yourself; and at the same time, not defining yourself at all. Straying from the formulated epic catwalks, he showed his designs in a blank, but hyper-colored space — putting all the emphasis on the designs. The garments, contrary to his beautiful linen dresses, were of a utilitarian approach. It’s as if you just hiked over the peak (that was the pandemic) to find a new, surreal life outside of isolation. That surrealism was literally translated in the outfits with the contrast of maxi and mini silhouettes in the same look. For fall, there’s a new optimism like we’ve never seen before, and Jacquemus gave us that in his garments for this season.
See what’s going to be trending this fall via Jacquemus’s surrealist vision and shop similar pieces to add to your closet below.
Punches of fuchsia, orange, and red in a sea of browns, olive greens, and blacks? Sounds like the perfect fall color palette to me.
As if you’re about to go on a hike in the mountains, but with a cool French girl twist. Think cropped puffers, cargo pants, zippers, drawstrings, and hook detailing.
Bra Tops Aren’t Going Anywhere
They’re still the perfect layering piece. For this fall, expect to see the trend evolve to pin tops, which was also seen in other looks (above) on this green grass runway. If you look closely, the metal clip spells out Jacquemus.
When a jacket is *that* good, you don’t need other pieces in your outfit competing with it. Pair an easy top and pants and you’re good to go.
Pairing Mini and Maxi Pieces
Tonal dressing is still very much a thing, but coordinating mini and maxi silhouettes can take your look to another level. It’s a different way of styling. I suggest pairing a simple bra top or cropped pin top with a chunky coat and cargo pants or wide-leg trousers for an interestingly proportioned outfit.
