Jean Jullien and Stereo Vinyls director Jae Huh go way back — 10 years to be exact. As fresh-faced inductees to London’s famous Central Saint Martins art school, the pair struck up a bond, spending time with one another developing concepts and various projects. Fast forward to the current day and the bromance remains strong as ever, with the French graphic designer and illustrator now linking up with Huh’s South Korean label for an irreverent new collection.
The broad, playful range effectively turns each item into a wearable mask, with the face being a recurring motif in Jullien’s work. Highlights include a white hoodie and denim jacket, an elongated sweater, and a striking trench jacket with painted black stripes and countenance, whose inception you can view in the clip above. Accessories are also amply represented, with a wide selection of baseball caps, socks and a scarf available for purchase.
The Jean Jullien x Stereo Vinyl’s collection will be released for public sale on October 8 at the flagship Beaker store in Chungdam, Seoul. Look out for the artist performing a live painting at said event, too.
Stereo Vinyl’s isn’t the only collaboration Jean Julian has carried out in recent months. Check out this lamp designed in tandem with Case Studyo’s here.
