Jacquemus models nearly-nude on runway

Jacquemus models nearly-nude on runway

Jacquemus was happy to bare all in its Autumn/Winter 15 Paris Fashion Week showcase.

A handful of models made their way down the runway with their bare chests on show, accessorising a nude top half with either trousers or a skirt.

One model was slightly more covered, wearing a structured black skirt with a looped belt and a top made of two black handprints that covered her breasts. The rest of her torso was on display.

The collection had an oversized, almost cartoon-like, quality to it, with one pair of starched white trousers pulled up above the navel, with sharp edges that came out way beyond the model's waist.

Another look featured the same large trouser design, this time in black, with two big red holes punched through the waistband to allow a camel-coloured pair of oversized braces to be looped through. The final effect looked like a little girl had climbed into her father's trousers.

Other designs were more wearable and used graphic cuts and odd angles to bring a twist to proceedings.

"I cut jackets like little kids will do—sometimes the cut is weird, there is just a half top. I like this randomness," Simon Porte Jacquemus explained.

The colour palette was typical for the colder months, and bucked with the bright trends shown in Milan and London. Black, khaki and camel dominated the show, with pops of yellow and white adding a touch of lightness.

Anthony Vaccarello also showed yesterday, offering a nearly all-black collection. Structured eveningwear worked well against more casual looks, with most designs showing off the models' enviable figures.

Today will see Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Dries Van Noten and Vionnet show.
