A graduate of the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Cedric Jacquemyn decided to launch his own menswear line after completing his studies, presenting his first collection in Paris in 2011. Rich in layers, meanings and contradictions, his clothes reconcile ancestral narratives with urban references, achieving a delicate balance between timelessness and innovation.
Jacquemyn finds inspiration in loose threads; unfinished stories that demand a second take. Playing with illusion and unexpected effects, he pursues his research on textures and contrasts, combining the rough with the soft, the pared-down with the intricate. Focusing on natural fibres the Belgian designer goes back to the primitive notion of clothing as shelter, wrapping men into his soft and protective garments.
