About the designer
Her emerging passion for fashion led Sophie Mechaly to launch her brand Paul & Joe in 1995. The French label, named after her two sons, started off with a menswear line which was instantly met with success. The launch of the women’s collection promptly followed a year later. Mechaly’s signature style is characterised by a colourful, vibrant aesthetic fused with a vintage spirit. Paul & Joe is worldly acknowledged and evolved into a state of mind expanded with a beauty line, eyewear, handbags and small leather goods and an interior decorating line about to be launched.
