JEROME JACQUES MARIE MAGE
“Individuality is an idea that demands its own unique expressions.”
Over the last two decades, Jerome Mage has carved a vital and vibrant space at the intersection of design, sport, and fashion, utilizing a multidisciplinary approach that combines a rigorous engagement in cultural heritage with an uncompromising dedication to quality and craftsmanship. Jacques Marie Mage is the culmination of Mage’s expertise and interests, a designer goods brand producing limited edition designer goods that physically and figuratively bears the designer’s personal crest. The label reflects Mage’s matured vision and refined aesthetic vocabulary, one that boldly reconfigures a spectrum of cross-cultural affinities that range from the French First Empire to the American West.
Inspiration and Collectibles
At JMM, we delight in attempting to see through the eyes of those artistic and intellectual giants that came before us. Our design practice is inextricably informed by the cultural revolutions of the last three centuries, drawing encouragement and inspiration from the great epics and anti-heroes of our collective histories. We attempt to observe, reconstruct, and re-tell these stories via products that maintain the high standards of quality and taste upheld by our progenitors.
DESIGNED IN LOS ANGELES
La Fayette Park, Los Angeles
Jacques Marie Mage finds its center in sunny Los Angeles, California, the indie eyewear capital of the world. Our studio and showroom is surrounded by giant palms and nationally registered historic buildings erected during the roaring twenties, as well as distinguished relics like The Park Plaza Hotel, Bullocks Wilshire, and The Ambassador Hotel (former home to The Academy Awards). It's here among the area’s exuberant and decorative spirit that the brand has happily laid down roots.
