New York City recently hosted the Met Gala, an event that gathered some of the leading fashion and celebrity figures. Among the attendees were Simon Jacquemus, the French designer behind the famous Jacquemus brand, and Manu Ríos, the Spanish actor known for his role in the series “Elite”. While they opted not to attend the after-party, they were seen partying together at a New York nightclub.
A video circulating on social networks showed Simon leaving the bathroom of the disco followed by Manu. The clip has led many to speculate about a possible romantic relationship between the two. However, it should be noted that Simon is engaged to Marco Maestri after getting married in 2021. Despite the rumors, neither Simon nor Manu has issued a statement concerning their alleged relationship.
The Met Gala is an annual event where celebrities, fashion designers and businessmen who are influential in the fashion industry meet. The presence of Simon and Manu in a nightclub has generated many rumors, but the truth behind their relationship remains a mystery.
Who is Simon Jacquemus? The French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus was born in Provence in 1990 and is currently one of the youngest and most important designers on the catwalks. Simon moved to Paris in 2008 and entered the oldest fashion institute, the Escuela Superior de Artes y Técnicas de la Moda (ESMOD). However, he left his degree months later to work for Citizen k magazine. The sudden death of his mother in 2009 led him to leave ESMOD and look for a job. Months later, he decided to start his own brand in tribute to his mother’s memory. He named it Jacquemus, which is her maiden name. In 2017, Simon added a line of footwear to his collections and announced that he would design menswear, a line that he launched in 2019. In addition to shoes, Jacquemus also designs bags and hats.
