Simon Porte Jacquemus, lavender aficionado and purveyor of microscopically-sized handbags, has presented a travel guide to his beloved Marseille. Who here ordered an extra-large helping of joie de vivre?

The designer grew up in Salon-de-Provence, a small town some 40 miles from France's second city, before relocating to Paris, where he started his eponymous label while working as a sales assistant at Dover Street Market. Despite that, Jacquemus has always been much of a home bird, splitting his time between the sun-drenched south and his atelier in the capital. When you see the content below, it's pretty evident as to why.

In the extraordinarily FOMO-worthy clips, Jacquemus presents a mélange of the city's best bars, clubs, boutiques, hotels, and general attractions. Like stepping into a Gallic fever dream, it's easy to grasp the aesthetic touchstones that have come to define the 30-year-old's design language.

The pandemic might have put a stop to most travel just now, but when flight routes open up again, what better way to celebrate freedom than a glass of wine and some hearty bouillabaisse in a restaurant that overlooks the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean? Find the list of Jacquemus' haunts below, and then excuse me as I sigh forlornly while looking out the window of my Berlin apartment.
