PHOTO DIARY: Marc Goehring Grabs a Front Row Beach Towel at JACQUEMUS’ Menswear Debut

After the Men’s Spring/Summer 2019 shows in Paris, 032c Fashion Director Marc Goehring took a train to Marseille, where Simon Porte Jacquemus launched his first-ever men’s collection earlier this week. Jacquemus’ “Le Gadjo” line is designed for the Mediterranean boy at heart – so obviously the défilé took place on a secluded beach, where guests sat on beach towels and had Pastis and ice cream. Marc came back to our Berlin HQ with this travel diary:

Me after a month traveling. Time for the highlight. (So savage.) Jacquemus!

To Baldwin he was an “anti-Nazi German who has the scars to prove it.” Debating his return to the USA after 25 years, Baldwin explores the political climate in America at the end of the 1970s in a conversation at home in Saint-Paul-de-Vence.More
