About Us

OUR STORY

La DoubleJ is a multi-tasking Milanese brand that edits the very best of Italy.  Founded by J.J. Martin in 2015, the company has expanded from a shoppable magazine selling just vintage clothing and jewelry to a full lifestyle label offering new fashion made with archival prints, cool home design and rare vintage.  All of La DoubleJ’s creations—from our signature patterned dresses, skirts and tabletop items to our lively content and boisterous pop-up shops—are distilled through a lens of pure joy, eye-popping print and love of all things maximal. 

OUR LEADER

Los Angeles-born, Milan-based journalist and vintage collector J.J. Martin has spent the past 17 years scoping out the very best of Italian fashion and design as a contributing editor at Harper’s Bazaar USA, WSJ, and Wallpaper magazines. Her writing has also appeared in T: The NY Times Style Magazine, Japanese Vogue, AD and Elle Décor.  Now Martin translates her experience as an editor into discovering hidden archives, designing vintage patterned collections, and shining the light on Italy’s unsung historic producers for La DoubleJ. 

OUR PRODUCTS

Our clothing and accessories made from vintage patterns discovered sleeping in the secret archives of Italy’s top textile manufacturers, printed onto new fabrics and crafted entirely in Italy. Fine silks and crisp cottons are spun and printed on the shores of Lake Como, while our knitwear is woven in small bottegas throughout central Italy. La DoubleJ Housewives—our homeware line, inspired by mythical Milanese housewives, otherwise known as  sciure —is comprised of perfectly patterned and brightly colored maximalist ceramics, linens and glassware that can all be layered, mixed and matched for an exuberant household effect.
