The SS18 season’s muse is L’Ka Tea, aka @_wafffles. This girl is cooler than cool based in NYC by way of Kazakhstan. In addition to her growing modeling career, L’Ka is a talented skate boarder and b girl dancer. Photographer Meredith Jenks was perfect for capturing L’Ka’s energy as a true J.Papa girl. This was Meredith’s 4th season shooting for J.Papa and we continue to be honored to work with such a dynamic artist who blends fashion and street photography seamlessly creating each seasons editorial style look book. Make up was beautifully executed by Aya Kudo with styling by Christina Tung who has really helped emulate the J.Papa attitude into a brand.
Fabrics used for the SS18 collection are protective and versatile while still maintaining a signature sexy silhouette. Each piece in every J.Papa collection is based on interchangeable separates which is important as the J.Papa label prides itself on diversity, allowing something for everyone. With this years change in leadership, creating a rollercoaster of hope, it was especially important to design a line that the J.Papa girl can keep her shit together in while taking on all of the societal elements thrown her way!
