Time Out says

You don’t need frills and pleats to be dressed beautifully – Jaquemus’ clothes, made from simple cotton, linen and boiled wool, are proof of that. From his atelier in Montmartre, 22-year-old designer Simon Porte (Jacquemus was his mother's maiden name) creates minimalist jumpers, skirts, dresses, shirts and tops that make you look perfectly underdressed. Not everyone can carry it off: the cuts are purposefully shapeless – uniform like even - paying more attention to the necklines and sleeves than the waist or chest areas, and the colours are monotone (in whites, greys, blues and reds); but if you’re a twiggy type, Jacquemus’ designs might just be the highlight of your shopping trip. Price tag wise think 350€ for a jacket, 200-300€ for a dress. Visits are by appointment only.
