Pepe Jeans London offers the service of Costume Studio since March, where you can complete the design of any demin piece. Integrated in the new concept stores and under the motto Do It Yourself (DIY), in this customization studio, clients can customize the purchased  pieces in the store as they like. The stamping is laser made. The client can also choose to apply buttons or studs, efects of wear, color printing, among other choices.
In Portugal, this service is available in the brand store at Centro Comercial Colombo, in Lisbon, where you will find a demin professional to guide and advise the client during the costumization.

To celebrate this new service, Pepe Jeans teamed up with PARQ MAGAZINE and invited two artists to test the system and to a customization session for the May’s magazine fashion editorial. The artists chosen were, the designer and illustrator, José Cardoso a.k.a. Tomba Lobos (Porto) and, the designer and tattoo artist, Nicole Lourinho (Lisboa).
More info on this Pepe Jeans new exclusive and more about the pieces created by the two artists, here.


Nicole Lourinho is a visual artist, drawer, photographer and tattoo apprentice from Lisbon, Portugal, where she currently works at the Queen of Hearts Tattoo & Piercing Studio.
With a strong background in the hardcore and rock scene, Nicole started down the path of photographing her friends, concerts, and drawing and painting until she found out that tattooing was the path she wanted to take. During this time period Nicole also realised the importance of conveying her own perspective to as wide an audience as possible and thus begun working using unique techniques through sounds, imagery and colors.
In this episode of the Creative Diaries by FRS, Nicole takes us for a ride across Lisbon as her hometown and inspiration source as she creates and describes what motivates her and how she perceives herself. Check out more draws by Nicole below!
