For summer 2015, OLOW are proud to present to you the result of an exclusive collaboration with artist illustrator Jean Jullien. Inspired by the world of the beach and vacation, the collection Olow x Jean Jullien emphasizes the artistic work of one of the most promising French illustrators of his generation.
With a graphic language pretty gross, Jean Jullien offers a series of illustrations inspired by water, sand and sun. He describes his world as ‘a mixture of humor and observation.’
“These are small visual gags from my sketchbooks that I create every day. I especially like to draw when I’m at the beach, because it is a very special environment. This is one of the few social contexts in which partial nudity is fully accepted and common.”- Jean Jullien
Both nourished by the artistic sensibility of Jean Jullien and our universe, this new line consists of three parts – a shirt, a cap and a jersey -. We have successfully integrated the graphic world of Jean Jullien without distorting it.
“I’m really happy with the result because my illustrations are not central compared to what I used to do with them. They’re the small things that we look at when we’re up close. It’s a great collaboration because it includes both our sensitiveness’s.”
