Jacquemus travels to Capri for its 15th Anniversary collection – La Casa

HAVING previously taken to the South of France to showcase its spring-summer 2024 collection, Jacquemus has now travelled to Capri to unveil its latest seasonal offering. Coinciding with the brand’s 15th anniversary, the fashion presentation celebrates quintessential Jacquemus codes.

Exploring minimalist geometries and classical Greek draping, the collection centres itself around a radiant lightness and sensuality. Imbued with subtle surrealist touches and symbolism, the collection – Titled La Casa – features an array of form-fitting silhouettes and cascading volumes.

Sheer mousseline, jersey and suede join forces in a display of fluidity and movement. Constructed jackets are adorned with angled portrait collars and precise panelling, whereas other outerwear showcases painted edges and hand-finished detailing.

The extravagant form of a sun hat is transformed and adjusted to the torso and A-line skirts accentuate the waist with straight lights and careful contours. Meanwhile, light-weight bustier dresses hug the figure in a relaxed yet feminine way.

For menswear, Jacquemus has combined smart tailored silhouettes with playful prints, such as graphic zebra stripes. Other wardrobe essentials appear adapted and reimagined for the new season, with scooping tanks, baggy pants and pleated adding flair and fun to the offering.

The designer has also referenced Curzio Malaparte’s home and Godard’s Le Mépris throughout the ensemble, to further connect the garments to their surroundings. Floor tiles become an artistic motif alongside the kaleidoscope of Capri blue, red, warm yellow and bright sage hues that illuminate the space.

Additionally, La Spiaggia makes its debut for the 15th anniversary. A hand-crafted, rond-carré bag designed with the beach in mind, La Spiaggia is certain to be a beautiful everyday companion. Le Bombola, a bucket bag whose shape is particularly architectural, is available in leopard jacquard, smooth or sand-toned leather finishes and features large, sculpted magnetic hardware.

For footwear, Jacquemus continues to offer delicate yet refined classics. Stacked ballerinas, square-toed espadrilles and moccasins allude to Bourgeois archetypes, ushering in the new seasons with glamour and opulence.

Emphasising craftsmanship, precision and attention to texture, La Casa marks a sparkling new chapter for the brand.
