My label LILA&JOHN creates supreme quality street wear with couture details. I´m a Brussels based brand that manufactures in Europe and works with carefully selected and sustainably sourced materials.
From my personal and intimate point of view, I explore, by quoting, transforming and interpreting, both contemporary urban culture and historical heritage in a playful way. Combining traditional techniques and craftmanship with casual silhouettes and androgynous shapes, my collections provide an easy to wear look for great comfort. I am joyously embracing these ingredients to create a set of desirable clothes for the times we currently live in.
My collections aim to empower people of all ages, backgrounds and sizes and nourish their inner strength and beauty. LILA&JOHN is made to be worn and shared by real people in real cities.
The brand has a clear look on fabric, fit and fabrication. The color combinations and the choice of the materials are key intuitive choices aiming for a specific comfort and feeling on the body. The goal is to feel comfortable and confident, while contributing to a sustainable world: all materials are carefully selected and sustainably sourced. We often work with dead stock fabrics and yarns from big fashion companies. Furthermore we work with a small fabric company in Germany that only produces fabrics that have the GOTS certificate. We produce our knitwear with a small family business in Belgium and our cut and saw garments are made by independent seamstresses in Hungary and Belgium.
