Back to school at Djab with Jay Le Barbier and Martin Langelier

8 Aug 2016

Whether you like it or not, back-to-school is just around the corner. This year, we've decided to come back with a bang! No corners have been cut and we’ve got everything from Instagram collaborators to thematic galleries and prizes to win. For our project, we've had the amazing opportunity to work with two Instagrammers who have become our models for a day.  We've explored two looks with them: Workwear and 90s Grunge

JAY LE BARBIER

Jay Le Barbier from Krwn Barbershop, is passionate and describes himself as eternally unsatisfied. This only motivates him to keep going above and beyond. “I always want more, to look for that certain something that is missing from my life,” he told us. His everyday look is a mix of classic pieces like an oxford shirt and he never leaves his house without a hat. He wears our trendy Workwear look: check shirts, rolled chinos, beanie all in rugged materials that adapt to a super busy lifestyle, just like yours.

MARTIN LANGELIER

We opted for a more sporty style for Martin Langelier who is working for Redbull. 90s Grunge is all about layering T-shirts, iconic brands, longline fits and ripped skinny jeans. An everyday 90s revival look. Martin likes to play with fits and styles variations. His must-have is a white tee, even if many prefer to wear black.

What motivates him every day? 

Doing something that I like and change the world, nothing less.

It's your turn to get in on the action and update your back-to-school list. Keep it simple, the secret is all in the small details. A T-shirt with a patterned pocket and joggers make an excellent basic outfit. A comfortable backpack for carrying your computer and books - always a necessity. On your feet: Vans skate shoes designed for comfort. We've given you some ideas, now use them to make your back to school look your own. 

We want to see your look on Instagram
