Check out the Fall/Winter 2015 menswear collection from Cedric Jaquemyn.

“Emphasizing his skills as a meticulous tailor, Antwerp-based Cedric Jacquemyn goes back to the essence of cloth and construction, combining razor-sharp cuts with evocative fabrics. Jacquemyn references rites of passage, such as blood initiation in New Guinea Islands, which stress the evolutionary nature of some of his garments. The silhouette is long and architectural, perched on leather platform boots, a collaboration with accessory designer Nico Uytterhaegen.”

Cedric Jacquemyn Fall/Winter 2014

Check out the latest from Cedric Jacquemyn.

“This season, Jacquemyn finds inspiration in loose threads, unfinished stories that demand a second take. Playing with illusion and unexpected effects, he pursues his research on textures and contrasts, combining the rough with the soft, the pared-down with the intricate. Focusing on natural fibers -such as yak, alpaca, leather and linen- the Belgian designer goes back to the primitive notion of clothing as shelter, wrapping men into his soft and protective garments.”

“Reconnecting with our roots and the essence of clothing, he offers a spiritual and transient vision. Using tree bark on several pieces — an ancient weaving technique hailing from Uganda — Jacquemyn gets even closer to the organic nature of his work, pushing flux instead of stasis.

Check out the Spring/Summer 2014 menswear collection — Remains of Muted Beliefs — from Cedric Jacquemyn.

The disappearing cultures of the ancient Amazon and the dying rituals of their tribes inform the second chapter of Remains of Muted Beliefs, a men’s wardrobe by the Belgian designer Cedric Jacquemyn.

Melancholy airs of disintegration and extinction are woven throughout, captured and streamlined in veiled layers – the stories of survival 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.
