I love my denims. And I love effortless chic easy to wear. I love voluminous dressing. If this doesn’t sound sexy enough for me, I just take off my bra. It will work just fine. I love the colouring too. I am Jena.Theo. In love. Just without the big, soft, curled hair.

Having turned to the darker side of Hollywood, the design duo referred to strong female characters of film noir as seen in David Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’ or Robert Aldrych’s ‘Kiss Me Deadly’. Continuing on focusing on their design signature of volume and geometry, British Jenny Holmes and Greek Dimitris Theocharidis brought about powerful billowing silhouettes and a lot of Hollywodd glam.

Since their first collection, Jena.Theo have worked closely with the London based artist O.Two on hand-painting techniques for their fabric. Working initially with aerosol on walls and vertical surfaces, he has built a working process that, when applied to canvas and fabric, lures the viewer into mists of dark, ambient colour illuminated by bold, abstract gestures.

Stylist Rebekah Roy combined geometric prints and hand painted colour gradients on voluminous blouses and loosely draped, flowing fabrics such as silk satins, silk jersey, silk cottons and twills; the models catwalking under a sky of lightbulbs.

Jena.Theo was announced by Donatella Versace as the Winners of Fashion Fringe in 2009 and have not disappointed the fashion crowd since. We are much looking forward to their upcoming denim collection.
