Teatum Jones Yes Please

This is an amazing design duo that I heard about from a friend. Their work is beautiful, elegant and so effortless. I would wear any of their stuff in a heartbeat.....I'll leave you with their own biography and an amazing array of their designs...

Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones are the 
Designers behind the label Teatum Jones.

Having trained in womenswear at Ravensbourne College of Design and Central Saint Martin’s respectively, they previously worked for Luella Bartley, Warren Noronha and John Richmond.

Teatum and Jones met whilst working together on menswear and they became enamoured with one another’s sense of escapism. 

Besotted with the power of a story and drawn to both romance and tragedy the duo find themselves compelled to seek out beauty and refinement in what is ordinarily considered sinister or dark.

The Designers are conceptual in their approach to design whilst remaining loyal to an ethos of authenticity, desirability and quality. Fascinated by human behaviour and exchanges, Teatum and Jones’ signature is within their anthropological approach to design and fashion.

The Teatum Jones woman has a refined and contemporary take on elegance. She is inadvertently chic yet boldly nonchalant. She is drawn to the label because it allows her to achieve the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. Embodying the effortlessness and ease of the pieces, the Teatum Jones woman embraces the conceptual whilst radiating a contemporary elegance. 

Having made the decision to launch their own label, Teatum and Jones spent several years researching and developing their ideas for what they envisioned as a contemporarily relevant womenswear brand. After being chosen as one of the 10 finalists for the Fashion Fringe competition in 2009, they launched their debut womenswear collection for SS11 in London, September 2010. They are extremely proud to be launching their third collection for SS12 on schedule in London fashion week.
