About NJK Collection
Jeanie McArthur has enjoyed a long and successful career in fashion, initially in business with her husband Yuzuru Koga and later with Issey Miyake as UK retail sales director. During this time she travelled extensively in Asia and the Far East and gathered ideas and inspiration with a view to one day perhaps using her experiences and love of textiles to create her own work.
Living and working between Japan, UK and India in recent years Jeanie’s ambition has become a reality and her concept clothing and textile label NJK is in its 7th year and going from strength to strength.
Making in India with the most talented artisans she has explored and further expanded their hand craft skills mixing rare vintage prints, kimono designs and Indigo weaves to create a unique and very desirable cross cultural effect. Jeannie’s work has become a true expression of her two cultural passions – Japan and India and combined with her love of vintage markets where she find treasures such as 60’s prints and tribal cloths to incorporate into her designs.
She works on each piece individually, playing with textural combinations, developing different khanta stitches and displaying her ‘quixotic eye’ for colour and pattern along with her meticulous demand for quality and detail.
NJK started with limited edition shawls and multi patch bed covers – selling by invitation only it quietly gathered a loyal client following. Jeannie was invited to have her 1st selling exhibition at QUICO Gallery in Tokyo, this has since become a much anticipated annual event with clients adding to their collection year on year. NJK also has a yearly Pop-Up Shop in London hosted by KOKORO – now in its 3rd year and in June this year will be showing for the 1st time in Paris at MIRROR Gallery.
