The Jacob Cohën brand was launched in 1985 by Tato Bardelle, and quickly gained a foothold in the luxury denim sector. But it was Tito’s son, Nicola Bardelle, whose cleverness and creative talent brought Jacob Cohën, in 2003, to boutiques around the world alongside the top brands.
The strengths of the Jacob Cohën brand are its inimitable features: comfortable, high-quality fabrics paired with exclusive elegance. The vision driving the management team was to create a product suitable for both casual and formal wear, creating skinny jeans for men that could finally be worn with a blazer. Jacob Cohën jeans stand out for their tailoring and perfect wearablility, as well as the use of fine fabrics and embellishment with refined detailing—which has always been a defining feature of the brand.
Past and future, tradition and innovation are perfectly fused in each Jacob Cohën creation, which are strictly Made in Italy and designed for a discerning and sophisticated clientele. The manufacturing process is set up in line with the principles of high-quality workmanship, and intelligent hand tailoring, supported by the use of the latest technology. Furthermore, since its very beginnings Jacob Cohën has paid careful attention to its surrounding environment and the wellbeing of its clients. The use of natural dyes and the absence of harsh chemicals in the colouring and fixing process are what make its collections stand out from the crowd.
Since 2004 Jacob Cohën has expanded into the world of women’s fashion, in addition to introducing men’s chinos and the first “Limited Edition” collections. In 2008 it launched the first “total look” for men onto the market, and the complete woman range came two years later—unique and recognisable collections characterised by high-end design, masterful colour combinations, and the use of fine fabrics.
Jacob Cohën’s collections are sold in 450 boutiques across Italy, and 1500 stores worldwide, including Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Switzerland, Scandinavia, the former Soviet Republics, the Middle East, the Arab Emirates, Japan and North America.
