Self-taught designer Julie Thevenot launched her playful, avant garde line of clothing, jewelry, and accessories in 2008 following an MFA from the National Superior School of Decorative Arts of Paris. Her artistic training factors heavily into her experimental, research-based working process. Prints and shapes are wholly reflective, she says, of the free-spirited and spontaneous qualities of discovery. Everything is done by hand, using natural materials. She is based in New York, where she is inspired by the city’s “always-on” functionality and supportive, albeit competitive, energy.
Why we Covet: Bright, colorful, unforgettable.
