Collection – Jä

Jä is more a signature than a title. It celebrates everyday life through handwork, ordinary clothes, all of it influenced by Baltic countries, where the designer seeks her inspiration. She likes to consider garments as objects, where shapes and materials keep the sensations of a manual process.

About
Saloméja Jacquet was born in 1994 in Paris. She graduated in 2017 from Head — Geneva, in Fashion Design and Accessories, after a two year-degree in Fashion Design in France. Her work is quite based on inspirations of everyday life. She likes to transfigure the trivial, combines modest shapes, inspired by ordinary clothes, with handcrafted fabrics to translate them to a new and sensible design esthetic. The manual process has a real value in her production, it shows beauty of imperfection where one can disclose the craftwork — the singularity of a piece of garment is also defined by its defects. On top of that, she likes to eulogize details that touch her, like if it were jewels that became part of the garment.
