CHRISTOPHE JOSSE


After studying art history, Christophe Josse joined the Torrente fashion house where he worked for almost 15 years.

In July 2005, he presented his first eponymous couture collection and the following year he created his own house.

After becoming a permanent member of the French Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in 2011, Christophe Josse earned the title Haute Couture. He then broadened his brand with a ready-to-wear line.

In 2014 he decided to have a break, but he created a few collections in collaboration with Cymbeline Company of luxury leather goods and wedding dresses.

 

In 2016 was born Klova by Christophe Josse, the collaboration between the designer and the Chinese group: it’s a ready to wear partnership of creation, fabrication and distribution and it’s diffused in more than a hundred places all over the world.

By creating an aesthetic of fragile elegance, both floating and sensuous, he invented a form of subtle, but dynamic and contemporary, neoclassicism.

The studied simplicity, the segmented construction of the garments, the skeletal-like ribbing, spidery pleating and contrasting fabrics help to define his style, creating an ultra-feminine and romantic silhouette.

 

He worked for the development of these collections:
The fabric houses Laurent Garrigue,Taroni, Sfate and Combier;
The Parisian embroiderers Cécile-Henri Atelier, Lesage, Lanel, Montex ;
The fabric finishers Jean-Pierre Ollier, Atelier Dynale, Petra Tlapova;
The creasers Lognon, Plissés de France.
