Cedric Jacquemyn - "Remains of Muted Beliefs" - S/S 2014

Leave a Comment
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, showcasing garments and accessories at the Paris, Berlin, London and Copenhagen fashion weeks.
Cedric's work is defined by a sensitive touch - sculpting natural fibres into slim, flowing garments imbued with historical, ethnic and mythical significance.

For Spring 2014, he returns to “Remains of Muted Beliefs” presenting the second chapter on his fashion treatise of disappearing cultures of the ancient Amazon and the dying rituals of their tribes.
For this collection, Jacquemyn plays on the melancholy airs of disintegration and extinction as he wove, captured and streamlined then in veiled layers, the stories of survival of the Amazon tribes locked in the cloth.
A seminal romance dictates the long, lithe silhouette as garments clasp at the throat and fall in decadent swathes of cashmere, silk, linen and cool wool. The dark palette is broken by moments of khaki, bone and a myriad of textures contrasting rough and raw materials with a dim lustre.
