Launched in 2009, Jacquemus is a premium fashion label established by French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus at only 19 years old. The brand’s collections are often described as deconstructed and surrealist, featuring asymmetric designs, oversized silhouettes and experimental make up. Jacquemus has a strong social media presence due to its very ‘instagrammable’ accessories and playful feed.
In 2015, he received the Special Jury Prize at the LVMH Prize, an international competition for young fashion designers, which granted him with €100,000 in prize money. In 2017, the company’s revenue reached upwards of €9 million. He has recently caused a sensation with his “micro” Le Chiquito bags, which take the small bag trend to the extreme.
