[Un]Popular Opinion: cliché as it may sound, I think Pablo Picasso is a friggn LEGEND! And while we’re at it…. Cubism is in fact my favourite Art Movement.
Jacquemus is a young, talented, French, modern designer. His take on fashion is almost architectural in execution. He deconstructs objects, rebuilding sculpted masterpieces.
Jacquemus footwear was launched two years ago. His creative ingenuity in my opinion, borders on modern day Cubism. He leverages basic shapes and cleverly balances them to curate whimsical shoe perfection.
You see, the thing I love about Cubism is its ability to produce a conceptual image as opposed to the perceptual form. After all, I consider vision to be reassembled shapes built up to create depth and manipulated in form.
Jacquemus is only 29 and already pushing fashion boundaries. It’s a shame he’s put a stop to his quirky shoes. Regardless, I’m curious as to what he will unfold as he continues to rebuild, reinvent and rediscover.
Who’s your designer of the moment?
What’s your favorite Art Movement?
Ps: Take my posts as they come and don’t question the [ir]regularity. After all, I’d like to think of myself as a creative 🙃

I always enjoy your writing Kelbs ♥️
(One of my) favourite artists, Mondrian. His ablity to perfectly ‘colour in the boxes’ always went well with my ocd.
Favourite designer(s) of any moment, whoever Zara copies 😂 ♥️
Thanks Bon Bon! You always encourage me! I remember Mondrian being (one of) your favourite(s) and Matisse being one of Taiwo’s favourites (along with Giacometti).
