Inspired by the tutu silhouette, Jameson Kane sought to create a coat that reflects the delicate beauty of ballet while offering a unique perspective of outerwear. Taking insight from performance and garment design, this piece captures the inherent feminine presence of the tutu and transforms it into a practical luxury garment.

Designer Genevieve Pearson and businessman Stan Capobianco merged their respective talents to create Jameson Kane – a women’s high-end outerwear label that signifies the refined and sophisticated tastes of the elite, defined by its strength and resilience as a Canadian brand. Jameson Kane uses Canada’s finest wools and leathers along with meticulous tailoring to achieve the brilliant aristocratic styling. Based out of Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI), Jameson Kane was launched as one of the top contestants in Toronto’s renowned New Labels design competition in May 2012.
