One of the 2010 alumni of the Antwerp Academy, fashion designer Cedric Jacquemyn has developed his darkly romantic menswear aesthetic into a ready-to-wear business. Cedric’s work is defined by a sensitive touch – sculpting natural fibres into slim, flowing garments imbued with historical, ethnic and mythical significance.
Cedric carries on a continuing artistic dialogue with the photographer Yves de Brabander, who’s lens captures the brand’s visual identity in arresting natural and manmade landscapes…
Showing off his skills as a sartorial tailor, Cedric Jacquemyn’s collection starts at the root of cloth and construction; by taking perfect cuts with great fabrics and combining these into meticulous fits.
Rites of passage references are seen through the evolutionary nature of some of the styles. Long, architectural silhouettes are a dominant force and are paired with leather boots. Each layer is pulled back and provides the eye to view something new and interesting. It is the beautiful and delicate balance of knitwear and leather that makes Jacquemyn’s collection shine.
