JACQUEMUS X OPENMYMED - MARSEILLE JE T'AIME

From the earliest days of his brand in 2009, he commanded attention with his playful and naive aesthetic. In 2015, he won the LVMH Prize special jury award. Since then, Jacquemus had continued to rise and to enjoy increasing international commercial success, with his poetic and narrative creations like «Les Parasols de Marseille», «Les Santons de Provence» or«L’Amour d’un Gitan» (The love of a Gypsy)… 

An eternal lover of Marseille, Simon Porte Jacquemus is the guest of honor for the 2017 edition of OpenMyMed festival, produced by the Maison Méditerranéenne des Métiers de la Mode (MMMM). OpenMyMed opens the Provence Festivals season with «Marseille je t’aime», Jacquemus’ double exhibition: «Maisons» and «Archives» at the [mac] on May 12th, and «Images» at the MuCEM on May 14th. Also on May 14th, Jacquemus will do a special presentation, exclu­sively for Marseille, of his Spring-Summer 2017 collection «Les Santons de Provence» on the Place d’Armes du fort Saint-Jean. In order to share «Marseille je t’aime» with as big a public as possible, Simon also decided to create a book about Marseille, with friends, photographers, painters and contemporary artists.
