Los Angeles based designer John Elliott founded his eponymous label in 2012 first focusing on menswear. With a strong ambition to create tomorrow’s classics, John immerses himself completely into the design and production process from start to finish. The seasonal collections consist of basic categories that focus on functional, yet modern, silhouettes with unique fabrics. The women’s collection was first previewed on the Fall/Winter 2018 runway during New York Fashion Week. Inspired by the beauty and confidence of distortion and the juxtaposition of hard and soft elements, the women’s line is intended to be new and differentiated, while also compatible and wearable. The collection maintains the foundational values and principles of the menswear line – with John focusing on the custom development of fabrics to evolve basic categories.
John Elliott was the 2014 winner of GQ’s Best New Designer in America award. In 2016, he was named one of WWD’s Ten of Tomorrow and was nominated for the prestigious CFDA Swarovski Award. The brand has a longstanding partnership with Nike, first collaborating in 2015, with a lifestyle shoe and apparel collection alongside Lebron James x Nike launching in 2018.John Elliott is available at over 100 retailers globally.
