GERRIT JACOB‘s second collection titled “Raised by Wolves” is inspired by Jim Goldberg’s seminal work Raised by Wolves, a documentation of homeless youth and children fending for themselves in the streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco between 1985-95. In his SS23 collection, he merges the kitsch & camp with the rough & harsh.

For the first time the airbrushed styles – his signature pieces – are not only rendered in leather, but also in lustrous Japanese satin, denim and jersey. Gerrit Jacob uses materials such as leather, denim, mesh and jersey, all of which have been printed in world-class factories located in Italy’s historic Como region. There is a particular attention to sustainability: jackets have been made entirely with deadstock leather, denim and jersey are both cotton & GOTS certified and the satin is made of FSC certified viscose.
