Tonight the twenty-six-year-old designer had to park the worthiness – having been picked up last season by Selfridges and Net-A-Porter, he knew he couldn’t get away with not putting clothes on his top-editor-and-buyer-lined catwalk. Still, Jacquemus persisted in a childish vein for autumn/winter 2016. “My world is square and circle,” he said backstage after his show, somewhat stubbornly. “I am trying to push squares and circles.” What did that mean? Pinstriped suits with the rigid cuboid quality of a sandwich board; skirts with grooved panels that resembled a shopping trolley token; velvet frock coats that would suit Lurch’s grand, quarterback frame in the Addams family – and a feast of other awkward, geometric silhouettes besides.
Jacquemus continued: “Imagine a box of clothes, you plant a bomb in the middle, you have kids doing a collage with the leftover pieces and having fun – that was the idea.” That sense of the violent and the random persisted in the one-shouldered faintly Flintstones-y brown suede dress with one “couture” disconnected sleeve; the Burberry-ish plaid skirt that looked like the bottom of a jacket, paired with a back-to-front collared shirt and thigh-high white boots; the pinstriped navy suit that had been slashed on the diagonal, lost half of itself, only to be pinned back together with white bows, the left hand side now a plain blue suit with a voluminous sleeve on steroids.
