Designers have often claimed the style of the women in their immediate family as a source of inspiration, but there’s surely never been a mum whose memory generated as much steam heat on the catwalk as Simon Porte Jacquemus’s. Valerie was instrumental in everything about his life and career (he took her name for his business) and, even though she passed away nearly ten years ago at the untimely age of 42, he says her beauty was such that they still talk of her in the village in the South of France where he was born.
He called his new collection “La Bombe” in tribute to the lasting impact Valerie had on people. If the clothes he offered were any indication, it’s easy to see why she stopped traffic in a small town.
