LA JAQUETTE was created by Victoria Bourgin in 2020.
Victoria worked for 10 years in prestigious French fashion houses in Paris; since her childhood in Ukraine she was passionate about fashion: her dream was to create her own brand.
A FEW WORDS FROM THE CREATOR
Demanding customer but often disappointed when buying jackets; indeed neither quality, nor fabrics, nor prices, nor colors corresponded to my wishes.
I then founded La Jaquette where French craftsmanship, beautiful natural fabrics, fair prices and great color choices bring the perfect combination to life.
I want each jacket to be beautiful AND meaningful! La Jaquette honors French production by offering quality clothing accessible to all women. By cutting out the middleman, we can keep our margins reasonable and guarantee very low prices.
With the creation of the brand LA JAQUETTE we wanted to give meaning to our products and build authentic values behind the brand name.
Supporting local and sustainable production
We are proud to promote the rich know-how of French industry and preserve the authenticity of French manufacturing. All our pieces are made in our Parisian workshop by craftsmen who are passionate about their work. Currently 10 craftsmen are involved in our project and little by little we hope to develop our activities and thus create new jobs in France.
Reducing environmental impact
In 2015, the textile industry emitted more than 1,715 million tons of CO2, used 79 billion cubic meters of water and generated 92 million solid waste, according to the Pulse of the Fashion Industry Report. These are worrying figures that make it the second most polluting industry on the planet, after the oil sector. With our local production we wanted to reduce the environmental impact as well as encourage sustainable development.
Did you know that every year, between 10,000 and 20,000 tons of textile products are destroyed in France?
Upcycling is an emerging practice that is already a big trend. With upcycling we avoid waste and reduce the production of waste and finally we add value to the final product.
Our jacket collections are created in limited editions with fabric scraps from the stocks of the most famous French fashion houses. Each fabric is given a new life and remains unique.
Favour natural fabrics
By choosing clothes made of natural materials rather than synthetic ones, we contribute to the preservation of the environment. Synthetic fibers (polyester, acrylic or nylon) all come from a very polluting industry, petrochemistry (all technologies using oil or natural gas to manufacture synthetic chemical compounds).
At LA JAQUETTE we prefer natural fabrics, such as 100% wool, 100% cashmere and 100% cotton, which help protect our environment and keep us warm at the same time.
Giving value back to clothes
By consuming so much clothing, we no longer give them the value they deserve (they are so easily thrown away).
At LA JAQUETTTE we focus on quality, durability and beauty. We produce timeless, chic jackets that will last a lifetime.
At LA JAQUETTE we strongly believe in small changes that can have big impacts.
WHAT WE CARE ABOUT:
The Brand donates 1 EUR for each order for the protection of animals in France. With our small gesture we hope to improve the daily life of our animal friends.
