15 brands like Jacquemus to shop and have you feeling très chic

Brands like Jacquemus

Calling a spade a spade, Jacquemus has changed what it means to 'dress like a French girl'. From the bambinou, the chiquito to the bomba and the famous oversized straw hat, they've stayed as far away as possible from the quintessential silhouettes and refined colour palettes we've grown to associate with Parisian dressing (nope, there's not a black beret in sight!). Perhaps that's because of head designer Simon Porte's upbringing in the comparatively colourful and laid-back south of France, a proximity to nature and whimsy that we see reflected in his sartorial choices on the runway. Perhaps it's simply because Porte has a revolutionary vision of the modern French woman.

Nonetheless, it's a vision that has taken hold of the fashion industry, garnering fans across the globe, whether for their kitch garments or their dream-like runway shoes. But while we all want a piece of Jacquemus's coveted runway pieces, we're also seeing a plethora of brands play their take on Porte's pioneering vision. Uniquely their own, we've rounded up 15 brands that we think you should add to your fashion periphery as places to get your southern French-inspired pieces.

If there's one thing Jacquemus nails, it's a bold hued accessory, a trait they share in common with West Australian label Poppy Lissiman. From surreal, bug-eyed sunglasses to tiny, candy-hued handbags, Poppy Lissiman is a brand that doesn't like to play it safe.
