Standing as an intermediary between the past , present and the future, Joteo tempers a drive for innovation with a sense respect for traditionalism. Defying the restrictions of 2-dimensional patternmaking, the house works in the 3D, using a combination of couture draping and savoir fare tailoring to create architectural forms that while familiar, are disconnected by an otherworldly elegance.
our manipulation techniques and sculptural forms extend the boundary of the body with both protective and insulating connotations; Their curved symmetry juxtaposed against strained folds allowing the female form to appear as if it has armed itself with a transcendental force that it has summoned from the ether.
At current, the house operates in a small capacity, only having been conceived last year. While the house does offer small ready-to-wear ranges at our Winn Lane stockist, Practice Studio, its true pride lies in our made-to-measure and couture for which we are proud to say have found its way to many international locations and publications, a recent example being Seoul Fashion Week S/s 2020.
