When Simon Porte Jacquemus won the esteemed LVMH Special prize last week, not only was his presence cemented in the hearts, minds and fashion editorials of stripe-loving fashion aficionados (fashionados?) worldwide. The occasion also marked the beginning of an exciting new era for the young French designer where financial aid will be slightly less difficult to come by, allowing him to make more, bigger, better collections. Hurrah! With any luck, Simon will soon be applying his silhouette-transforming pieces to more bodies and making more funny giant-pants-to-be-worn-as-dresses in the process.
To celebrate, here’s a bunch of nice photographs taken by photographer Lumir Schulz for French magazine Crash behind the scenes at his SS15 catwalk collection last year – a bright blue and yellow insight into Simon’s crisp, cotton world, complete with grinning faces, cut-out shapes and excess fabric.
