Jahnkoy Maria is a new-York based visual artist. Born in Russia, studied Fashion at Parsons and Central Saint Martens with a personal belief that the soul of a person is connected to what one wears; having a way of elevating and empowering the wearer.
At the South Africa Menswear week AW 17, she had her collaboration collection with Puma shown. The collection was titled “THE DISPLACED”. It was an amazing showcase that felt more like an exhibition than a runway show. The details of the collection had striking colours, interrelated detailing and elaborate embroidery with some popular culture references.
Her brand is upcoming but still able to pull out some strength and is accompanied by a print newspaper / Zine publication.
With a closer look you may discover that the Jahnkoy brand has a similar pose of a lion like the Puma brand but his stands for bravery and strength of the good hearted.
