Jacquemus, AW14, Paris.
The Autumn-Winter 2014 collection for Jacquemus had a naive and chunky quality to it with oversized silhouettes that swam around the bodies of the models, and organic polka dots that floated across the garments.
The chunkiness of the collection came not just from the pattern cutting of the silhouettes but also from the fabrication, with neoprene helping to support the sleeves that sat away from the body.
The large, loose dots that appeared throughout the collection were often cleverly used as patch pockets. These dots were often attached to garments with a border of topstitching, a technique that can be used to take advantage of situations where the edge of the fabric can be left raw without any risk of fraying.
