Jonathan Simkhai is a fashion designer based in New York City. His first solo collection was launched in 2010, and incorporates a modern, fresh approach to cosmopolitan womenswear, drawing inspiration from both masculine fashion queues as well as classically feminine fabrics. Simkhai has been featured as an up-and-coming designer in such publications as NYLON, ELLE, and New York Magazine. His collections are carried by boutique stores, as well as Barney’s.
Simkhai developed his personal style and taste working as a buyer, and later honing his skills as a designer. Although his designs remain rooted in a decidedly New York attitude, his collections incorporate a California vibe focusing on style and comfort. As his collections continue to blur fashion gender lines, Simkhai hopes to provide women with the feel of the “boyfriend borrowed” piece, adding feminine elements to create a unique, everyday outfit.
