Jan-Jan Van Essche

Antwerp, Belgium

Jan-Jan Van Essche is a unisex designer in Antwerp, Belgium. From his office in the heralded Atelier Solarshop, Jan Jan creates an apparel collection with singularly inventive patterning. The pieces are constructed with minimal seams, allowing the fabrics to drape elegantly. Rather than allowing the garments to impose a shape on the body, Jan Jan opts to allow the body to lend structure to the clothes. The resultant collection is artful, comfortable, and versatile.
