HISTORY

"When I started Lola Jeans back in 2006, I was not really thinking about my impact on the environment. I was running around with a duffle bag full of samples, trying to follow my dreams and build a fashion brand from the ground up. Ignoring (or trying to ignore) just how polluting our industry is"

Our new logo and modernized website translate this in simplicity, elegance, and function. We’ve also opened a second location in Miami—undoubtedly staying true to our Montreal roots, expect to see new inspirations from our beach location.
