Simon Porte Jacquemus knows how to create the ultimate summer dreamscape, whether situation in a hazy Provençal lavender field or on a storm-soaked Hawaiian shoreline.
The designers latest show, Le Papier, stripped back some of the fun and poppy colour, but still prompted us to plot a vacation, namely in the salt-rock mountains of Arles in Southern France.
Characterised by creamy whites and buttery neutrals, the collection was fresh, pure and pared back. Set against the salty, space-like natural setting it was every part the social moment the brand has come to be known for.
Alongside the clothes (!) was incredible beauty. Led creatively by makeup artist Lauren Parsons and hair stylist Cyndia Harvey, the look wonderfully juxtaposed glossy skin with chalky swipes of colour on the lids — almost as if fingers had been swiped across the Earth, and then onto the eyes.
Parsons also shared on Instagram that she penciled in faux freckles, not to mention plenty of creamy bronzer for a sunburnt finish.
Hair was just as cool and covetable: a mash-up of swishy ponytails and plenty of gelled-down baby curls. Yulia Pantiukhina, a hair and makeup artist who also worked on the show, gave us a glimpse of products used to create the style: L’Oreal Homme Clay and Bumble and Bumble BB Thickening Spray (shop both below).
It was a simple look at face value, but tiny details like the cloudy shadow and expertly placed curls lifted it to another dimension. File this one under European summer, or just the next dry day in Sydney.
Scroll on for a few of our favourite moments from the show, and products to recreate the look.
