In December 2013, the highly anticipated 3rd store of Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market opened in Chelsea, New York City.

Jupe is honoured and happy to announce that the Jupe by Jackie SS 2013 women’s collection is available at DSM New York, as well as the Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons collection - which includes pieces especially designed and hand embroidered by Jupe’s designer Jackie Villevoye.

They say 2013 is the year of the selfie. That is, on people’s smartphones. But back in 1950 they definitely knew how to make a self-portrait.

Jupe has collected their favorite selfies by artists and photographers, such as Weegee and Richard Avedon with Twiggy. 

We must admit, that their poses and way of framing is much more creative than the face-from-the-front-shot on your iPhone. So get inspired by these seflies, and enjoy your weekend!

If you happen to be passing through London over the next few months, Jupe recommends you to visit the Paul Smith exhibition at the Design Museum: a wonderfully uplifting exposition of the work and life of renowned fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, that lures you right into the colorful and ecstatic musings of a magnificent mind. 

The exhibition provides a look into Paul’s first store in Nottingham, his first showroom (a tiny hotel room in Paris, with 6 shirts folded onto the bed), his chaotic office and atelier: all rooms have been properly rebuilt to how they look in real life. One of our favorite features, however, are the immense walls of photographs, drawings, fan mail and art, a small selection of Paul’s own collections, which you could keep peering at for hours and hours. You’ll also find a massive wall of colored buttons, a selection of his designs, collaborative work and a great behind the scenes video of his latest men’s fashion show in Paris - one that Jupe by Jackie had the pleasure of attending.

One can trace Paul’s optimistic, humorous and inventive attitude in every single detail of his work, and that already is a beautiful and powerful thing to behold.

Last night, Professor Robbert Dijkgraaf of University of Princeton hosted a wonderful evening in Amsterdam for Dutch TV show ‘DWDD University’ about the scientist of the century: Albert Einstein. For the occasion, Jupe by Jackie designed a hand embroidered Einstein tie, complete with his most genius formulas.


Dijkgraaf was thrilled to wear the tie on this special evening. Matthijs van Nieuwkerk, host of DWDD and DWDD University, also wore a hand embroidered Jupe tie of the new collection. This piece will soon be available online here.
