“The Process Of Designing Wearable Art Begins With a Camera Lens and a Love Of Sharing Nature’s Beauty”
Whirlpools of Colour Silk Long Scarf—Paris, France
Each Piece Has a Unique Story Behind It
Each of the items we design tells the tale of the magical place that inspired Jean-Michel. When you wear a By Jean Michel piece, you wear more than a silk scarf or a pair of leggings. You wear a piece of art, meant to captivate and connect, while sharing the story of nature’s space.

Transforming Landscape Photography into Beautiful Wearable Art
Inspired by Earth’s natural beauty, the infinite colours and patterns around us, and the interplay of light and reflection, Jean-Michel captures conceptual beauty in digital images. Using these images, he then breathes new life into silk scarves, pocket squares and leggings by artistically transposing his art onto these silk fabrics in various ways. The end result: beautiful wearable art that makes a statement.
While Jean-Michel Gires captures nature’s beauty from across the world, he designs his By Jean Michel wearable art scarves, pocket squares and leggings in Canada.
