Brandon Truaxe, the founder of cult skin-care business Deciem, has died, according to an internal email circulated at Deciem.
Truaxe’s behavior started to become erratic in early 2018, when he started posting business announcements to the company’s Instagram accounts. He was removed from the business via Canadian judge in October after announcing the company’s shut-down via Instagram, reports @_a_collins.
For his second menswear presentation Jacquemus, who grew up in the countryside in Provence and is from a family of farmers, had models gathered at a farm table spread with trays of croissants and hunks of bread and cheese. The invite for the collection, titled “Le Meunier,” or “The Miller,” and based on French workwear, was a loaf of bread wrapped in a white tea towel signed Jacquemus, reports @katyaifucan.
