Defying the restrictions of 2-dimensional patternmaking, Joteo tempers a drive for innovation with a respect for traditionalism, using a combination of couture draping and savoir fare tailoring to create architectural forms that while familiar, are disconnected by an otherworldly elegance. With its own "Avant-Casual" flair, the house's silhouettes extend the boundary of the body with both protective and insulating connotations bridging the gap between couture and ready-to-wear with silhouettes that speaks both to the Joteo narrative and the wider world.
At current, the house operates in a small privatise capacity. 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.
Born from a desire for embracing feminine energy and empowerment comes an intentionally designed collection that explores occasion-wear through the lens of the female gaze.
