Design of Perfection

MORÀ BUSOLI stands for highly exclusive products that had never been conceived from a productive point of view so far. Nowadays, in fact, Morà Busoli is the only brand in the world that can realize frames with curved and sinuous shapes by carving solid marble and precious stones.

They achieved it by mixing an ancient handcraftsmanship, as the one of the sculptor, to an innovative technology as the one of the robots and precision engineers. Their history begins with the selection of prestigious and unique materials like every single piece of MORÀ BUSOLI collections.

Every detail comes from the combination of sophisticated technologies and creativity. The harmonic shapes emphasize the design of perfection. The long and meticulous process characterizes the exclusivity of the productions: as many as 193 steps are required to complete one single pair of Morà Busoli spectacle, most of which hand by hand. That makes at least 18 days of work to create a frame no-one else in the world could ever duplicate. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of eyewear, absolutely unique: as unique as the one who will wear it.

Designed by Patrick Hoet, Morà Busoli is a timeless, 100% made in Italy piece of art.

Jacquemus

Simon Porte Jacquemus started his own label when he was 19. Credited with bringing a freshness to Paris’ fashion scene, his collections are deconstructed, surrealist and often “NSFW.” Jacquemus takes archetypal French concepts like the Breton stripe and spins them on their head, working in the space between commercial and conceptual. He cites the Japanese brand Comme des Garçons as one of his referential points. 

Jacquemus moved to Paris when he was 18 and briefly enrolled at the École Supérieure des Arts et techniques de la Mode. In 2009, a year after the passing of his mother, he launched his label under her maiden name, Jacquemus. He began working at the Comme des Garçons store in 2011 to finance his business, after gaining the support of Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe .

His collections have a child-like spirit and sense of freedom, often featuring asymmetrical designs, oversized “stiff” silhouettes, experimental makeup and shoeless or topless models. The designer has his own studio off the Place des Vosges in Le Marais. In 2017, he was invited by the Maison Méditerranéenne des Métiers de la Mode to stage a catwalk in his native Marseille and his Spring/Summer 2018 collection, entitled “La Bomba,” was picked up by some of the world’s biggest retailers including Selfridges, Moda Operandi and Net-a-Porter. He has also launched a collection of footwear and handbags, as well as a men’s line. 

Jacquemus has a strong social media presence, helped by playful presentation of his images on Instagram, which he runs himself. In this vein, he published a photography book in tandem with the Spring/Summer 2014 collection — “La Grande Motte” — a reference to the Languedoc-Roussilon’s seaside resort and his experiences there as a child.

His playful approach to pushing the boundaries of French fashion has earned him a finalist spot and a special prize at the LVMH Prize in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
