The fashion label Juana de Arco, created by designer Mariana Cortez from Argentina, in 1994 and has been promoting a message of caring for others while making yourself feel good ever since. Since the brand was created back in South America, it has gained popularity all over the world and particularly in Japan. The style that encompasses a bohemian sensibility and lightness has also become popular in Japan in recent years so it is no wonder that fashionistas of Japan would welcome the Juana de Arco fashion label into the realm of Japanese fashion. Along with creating colorful and brilliantly happy designs, Mariana Cortez has also formed a charity that branches off of her clothing label. Instead of getting rid of the beautiful pieces of cloth that are unusable after an item of clothing is sewn together, Mariana Cortez has been sewing them together or weaving them into rugs, toys, and other usable items that she will later donate. So while you are making yourself into one of the most lively looking people around by wearing an item from Juana de Arco, you are also helping the people of South America in a way.
What makes Juana de Arco so unique is their use of color. Every inch of each item is covered with swaths of color and pattern. You will not be finding any plain black or white items at Juana de Arco. If you are also into yoga, then Juana de Arco is definitely a place that you should go! All of their items are designed with freedom of movement in mind. Whether it be their peach colored maxi T-shirt dresses or their mulit colored, patchwork styled harem pants, you will not ever feel constricted in their clothing. While everything at Juana de Arco is cut in simple and stylish ways, there is one item that is just a little bit out there but also extremely popular. From the front, this one garment looks like a regular everyday tank top. From the back, however, you will find a pair of puffy butterfly wings affixed just below the shoulder blades. They are hard to resist and also sell out quickly so get them while you can!
Mariana Cortes also has a firm belief on the importance and significance of lingerie to a woman. The thought being that whether you are wearing a suit to work or your favorite party dress, your lingerie, the clothing that is closest to your skin therefore your heart, is what you are truly expressing yourself with. As a result, Juana de Arco’s line of lingerie and swim suits are just as colorful and light hearted as their clothing. Whether you go for comfort or sex appeal when it comes to your under pinnings, Juana de Arco can give you just the right piece to express your true style.
Juana de Arco’s only store, located in Omotesando, is a pleasant mix of fashion and philosophy. Whether you are going in to simply take a peek or to indulge in their wholesome message, Juana de Arco is absolutely a place you want to check out!
