A Child of the Jago
A Child of the Jago was founded in 2007 by Joseph Corre and Simon 'Barnzley' Armitage. As long standing friends they have been making clothes for themselves using end of the line luxury wools, cashmeres and cottons. After years of indulging themselves they decided to open a store in the East End of London within walking distance of the local tailors shops. The 'A Child of the Jago' brand refers to the title of the 1896 novel by Arthur Morrison - a story about the children of the poverty stricken slums of London's East End.
Joseph and Simon reject the sometimes monotonous, repetitive fashions of today, instead offering dark, gothic printed t-shirts and Victorian inspired outerwear with a modern twist - this practice allows them to provide exclusivity as many fabrics are sourced from mills that cater to both Chanel couture and the Savile Row tailors.
