Jour/ne young designer

70s style gets a modern update as Jour/né put their signature dichotomous touch on this season’s collection. For SS18, Lou Menais, Léa Sebban and Jerry Journo take inspiration from the iconic colours of Coca-Cola for this vintage spin on red and white.

Discover the latest Jour/né range.


Unleashing a spectrum of colour and refining each design with the precision of a painter’s brush, Victoria/Tomas accentuate their neo-arty focus with a collection rich in sculptural silhouettes and elegant detailing. Mixing personal preference with au courant styling, founders Victoria Feldman and Tomas Berzins bring wearable art forms into the sartorial fore.

in high supply.
