Jonathan Simkhai launched his eponymous womenswear brand in 2010, inspired by the power and confidence of modern women. The New York-based label is known for its form-fitting designs which today meet wider ready-to-wear, encompassing clothing, swimwear, bags and accessories.
Luxurious fabrics from Italy and Japan are used throughout Jonathan Simkhai designs, including sumptuous cashmere, wool and silk. The label’s aesthetic is modern and feminine with an edge of androgyny, stemming from inspirations drawn from menswear. Clean lines and minimal detailing create a sleek and sophisticated look, combined with muted tones to produce a laid-back appeal. Classic designs are given a contemporary flair through cut-out details and interesting shapes, seen in knitwear, dresses and tops. Wearable, everyday pieces are met with opulent eveningwear. Floor-length satin gowns, flowing lace dresses and puff sleeve mini-dresses are standout options, while sleek blazers and trousers provide a sharp and polished look for any occasion. The brand is consistently fashion-forward, reimagining day-to-day basics and eveningwear with a high-fashion appeal.
Jonathan Simkai’s collections can be found online through the brand’s own website, as well as through Net-a-Porter, Harrods and My Theresa.
