In September Simon Porter Jacquemus confided in fashion critic Sarah Mower that his mother inspired his SS18 ‘La Bomba’ collection. French island girls were also on his mind – he imagined that ‘that they could be in Corsica, Martinique in the Caribbean’.
I chose the Maldives to wear Jacquemus’ ‘Bahia’ drape tunique.
The asymmetrical gathered effect and hand stitched artisanal fabric buttons elevate this summer piece, giving it a raw yet sophisticated look.
If the ‘Bahia’ could talk back to Jacquemus it would say that it was in its element between the cloudless waters of the Indian Ocean and the breathtaking beaches of Kunfunadhoo Island.
