After going viral last winter, Jacquemus’ Fall/Winter 2020 collection has finally landed online. In case it was unclear, there’s a silent ‘b’ in Jacquemus and it stands for beige, because it doesn’t get any more monochromatic than this season.
While I can’t promise you’ll look as badass as Gigi Hadid did on the runway (it was the hair flip that was heard around the world), the beauty of neutrals is that they work with any wardrobe. Let’s break down these must-haves!
Kicking things off with the bag that started it all, Le Chiquito is back in neutral tones, and a new men’s version. Unsurprisingly, this beige, croc-embossed Chiquito moyen already has a waitlist, but it’s one from a whole range of new colourways to choose from.
Le double sweat – because one layer of a pistachio coloured sweater just isn’t enough for the Jacquemus man. Pair it with pale green pants for the monochrome look, or with brown trousers for maximum wearability.
Appropriately described as a “mini draped dress”, this is exactly what I imagine Serena van der Woodsen is going to be wearing in the post-Kardashian era Gossip Girl reboot.
Are your chances of getting frostbite considerably higher if you step out in these during the winter? Absolutely. The real question is, are you going to let that stop you?
For all the straight men who are too self-conscious to carry a Chiquito, you can now wear it around your neck instead.
Oversize, slouchy bags may have made a comeback this year, but don’t forget about crossbody cardholders! Head over to SSENSE, where you can grab the perfect daily mini bag at a $60 CAD discount.
This is what you buy if you want to be cocooned in a weighted duvet for the rest of the season. The ultimate beige Jacquemus Fall/Winter 2020 flex, this is the overcoat that gets you excited for the fall, and keeps you warm enough through the winter.
