After dipping its toes into the world of interior design through a 2022 collaboration with Danish bedding brand Tekla, Jacquemus is now taking a bold leap by venturing into this new sector on its own. The Parisian fashion house has unveiled its debut collection, aptly named “Objets”, which pays homage to the iconic Italian architect Gae Aulenti. The collection features reissued creations from the architect’s notable works of the 1960s.

Jacquemus has always found inspiration in the worlds of design, architecture, and art, and it shows in the brand’s latest move into the world of interior design. Five years back, the designer created a ready-to-wear collection called La Collectionneuse for the Autumn-Winter 2019-2020 season, which drew inspiration from various artistic references. The collection featured everything from modernist chairs by Pierre Jeanneret to the incredible architectural work of Gae Aulenti.

Building upon the success of the Raphia ready-to-wear line, the << Objets >> collection features fifteen unique accessories and design objects, including leather trays, plates, vases, bowls, key rings, and baskets meticulously crafted in Italy.

“This collaboration with Exteta came naturally and spontaneously. I have always dreamed of developing a furniture line… I’m a great fan of designer chairs and I have collected Gae Aulenti vintage chairs for many years, ever since I saw them in the movie “La Piscine” by Jacques Deray. I wanted to add a JACQUEMUS touch to the chair, with a yellow striped fabric inspired by 80’s beach mattresses and umbrellas.”

To round off the collection, Simon Porte Jacquemus has added a curated selection of rare vintage art books and catalogues featuring works from his favourite artists, including Pablo Picasso, David Hockney, and Jean Dubuffet. The collection also includes original prints from renowned photographer Lucien Clergue.

As always, Jacquemus continues to infuse his designs with a poetic and whimsical quality, making everything he touches feel like a scene from a cinematic dream.
