Juliette et Justine is a fantasy classical art brand created by designer Mari Nakamura which is comprised of a fusion of classical arts and a world on the other side of a magical door.
This brand has unique prints that catch the eye inspired by fine arts, music, and literature. Using high quality materials to suit their one of a kind print design, the clothing is meticulously constructed bit by bit by a Japanese factory with an eye for detail and thorough work ethic, assuring the production of high quality items. These original pieces are highly sought after on the Chinese market and receive support from women in their teens and twenties. Even now, more and more enthusiastic fans are created every day.
Although Juliette et Justine shares the gothic Lolita style with other brands in Japan, what makes this brand unique is that each and every piece they produce has an extensive storyline behind it. Juliette et Justine aspires to continue creating one-of-a-kind pieces far into the future as the one and only high-fashion gothic Lolita brand in the world.
