PARIS — “Don’t wear heels,” said Simon Porte Jacquemus, who later today will show his first men’s collection on a secluded beach in one of the hidden bays of the Calanques, the rocky inlets around Marseille and nearby Cassis in the South of France. For the designer, who likes to go swimming in the remote spot, it’s “one of the best places on earth.”
“It’s a dream. You don’t feel like you’re in Marseille anymore. It feels like Greece, it’s so spectacular, with the rocks and the azure waters,” he said.

Human meaning flesh, being meaning spirit. As long as we have that, there is the opportunity for growth and elevation.” — Pharrell Williams, WWD Original.
