JULIA, founded in 2014 by Julia Buchanan, started off as a swimwear brand, inspired by Cape Town and it's surrounds. Over the years, the brand has developed into a collaborative space that aims to celebrate artists and individuals within the creative ecosystem in our country.
In 2019 JULIA launched the Creatives' Collection, and has more recently become home to the In Conversation Series. This August JULIA will launch a collaborative collection with Pick 'n Pay Clothing, inspired by our local landscape and the powerful women that in our country.
Pick 'n Pay Clothing x JULIA
Launching on the 9th of August 2020, the JULIA x Pick ‘n Pay Clothing collaboration celebrates femininity and florals. In a time of darkness, this collection returns us to innocence - using the garden as sanctuary, as well as a canvas. Our signature pink, a universal symbol for love, is predominant in this collection - representing affection, harmony and compassion. The floral print that has been hand drawn and digitally adapted is a feast of South African florals, commemorating our powerful and colourful women.
Creative's Collection is a series of swimsuits exclusively designed for JULIA by a group of handpicked local artists, illustrators and creative individuals.
Each season a new set of artists are selected and together a limited edition range of items is created, boasting unique designs inspired by the vibrant and diverse city that we live in.
