LES SANTONS DE PROVENCE
The Spring-Summer 2017 JACQUEMUS collection refers to one of the emblematic cultural objects embodying the spirit of South of France: les Santons de Provence.
Each Santon can be recognized through specific features of his costume relating to its identity or craft: the Arlésienne, the Grand Father, the Cook, the Sheperd, the woman with lavender, the Bohemian… The collection draws inspiration from these costumes, and offers a modern and free- spirited take on tradition.
The 32 looks echo a certain delicate simplicity to be found in these traditional costumes, and exude a natural elegance. Main fabrics are: linen, cotton, wool and white lace. The 32 looks are easily readable, with clear outlines.
The colors are neutral and quiet: black (brown, navy), white, beige; sometimes contrasted by a bright red and a strong graphical polka-dot pattern referring to the Bohemian style.
