You're in the south of France — sun shining, sipping chilled champaign with raffia bags strewn about, adorning the perfect silk head wrap. But, you're not bikini-clad, you're wearing Jacquemus’ Spring/Summer 2018 — the epitome of effortless French girl style. 

While it showed on the runway last fall, now is the perfect time to revisit this steamy collection. Dive into Jacquemus’ sunny and sophisticated world and start plotting your perfect beachside
getaway to complement your matching beachside look.

To start, let’s talk about this gem from the collection. I mean who wouldn’t want this expertly draped oversized shirtdress to throw over their bikini? The thick black head wrap only adds to the allure, not to mention is perfect for keeping wet beach locks in check.

Simon Porte, Jacquemus’ designer, explained that his mother was the inspiration behind the collection. He told Vogue, "She was shy, and she was sexy.”

“I don’t think I ever saw my mother more beautiful than on evenings after the beach and probably when she was in love,” read his show notes.

That sense of romanticism, that harkening to al fresco dinners that linger on, far after the light has gone, comes readily through in the clothes. Playful polka dots are paired with sensuous
sheer tank tops, a plunging, slinky neckline with tailored black capris.

The collection was entitled La Bomba, with “La Bombe” being a nickname for the designer’s mother. The bombshell element was apparent from the massively unmissable hats to the favoring of fringe, strappy sandals and singular oversized earrings paired with smaller, more colorful ones on the other ear.
