Crank up your engine. Roll down the crystal windows, and let your elbow lightly extend from the driver’s seat as you cruise through Limoland. This is not your average destination, with silhouettes full of quality fabrics and European flair. Curated by creator Jean Pigozzi, this lifestyle brand encompasses swim, tees, polos, and linen shirts for men.
After a look at a few of their bold shirts, you may want to pump your breaks. Pigozzi’s choices for the Summer line were nothing short of a fun-filled experience. He opted for sleek linen, embellished with a fun twist on the everyday army fatigue pattern, bursting with mixtures of jungle green, navy blue, and tan. Next, there is the blue sail printed button down, which exudes a fun twist on the simple, classic look for men. Of course, we can’t forget the colorful printed linen button-down with mathematical symbols and dollar signs. For those who need something to throw on before heading for a swim can always choose between the short navy/red planes front bottoms.
It comes to no surprise that art serves as a strong inspiration for his summer collection because, “My main collection has been contemporary African art. I've also been collecting young Japanese art, which is completely crazy with some unbelievable ideas and unbelievable images. This has been a major influence on all the graphics and colors we're putting on my clothes."
He has partnered with talent such as Natsumi Ishiyama, Ceaux, Mitsuru Takeya, and more to create various limited edition pieces that bring a one of a kind quality to the collection. "I'm hugely influenced by the art in my life, which I'm bringing to the clothes,” he said. Subsequently, this line has caught the eye of today’s top stars and tastemakers. Front runners such as Michael Douglas, Mick Jagger, Christian Louboutin, Brett Ratner and Andre Balazs have been spotted in Limoland.
