John Ribbe about

The creations of John Ribbe reflect his international life style. Born in Hamburg, he graduated from FIT in New York and later moved to Paris. After his first fashion show in 1993, the International Herald Tribune calls John “one of the leaders of the latest trends in Paris” and the German Burda writes “his fresh ideas make John Ribbe the newcomer on the international fashion stage”.

His style is strongly influenced by his passion for architecture, the shapes are pure, clean and immaculate.

John is a member of the Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-a-Porter des couturiers et créateurs and lives today between Hamburg and Paris.

In 2011, John launches his first bag collection. Just like his fashion, his bags are graphic, colorful and transformable. Leather etuis for eye-glasses, telephones or wallets are combined with pouches in a variety of shapes and sizes.

John’s bags offer countless options and let the customer personalize her ideal bag, mixing colors and shapes according to mood and taste. The bags are hand crafted in Belgium and are made of the highest quality full-grain leather.

The launch of a bag collection for men and the launch of a fragrance are next on John’s agenda.
