Next up on the Paris Fashion Week schedule is a set of images from behind the scenes at the JACQUEMUS show, lensed by none other than Adam Katz Sinding aka Le 21ème. Simon-Porte Jacquemus looked to the south of France — Provence in particular — for inspiration for his SS17 collection, and found it in les Santons de Provence, which are traditional figurines depicting classic elements of life in the idyllic region.

Naturally, Santons are dressed in typical Provencal costume — a quiet, humble look that was mirrored by JACQUEMUS' collection.

A muted, neutral palette of white, beige, black, and the like is hit with occasional splashes of color and pattern. The designer's choice of fabrics is similarly low key; SS17 for JACQUEMUS is all about linen, cotton, wool and lace.

Garments-wise, JACQUEMUS played with proportions, as shoulder and sleeves dramatically exploded outward, trousers were cut billowing and oversized. It's a dreamy, wistful abstraction of traditional French peasant dress.
