Los Angeles-born designer, James Flemons established his eponymous label, Phlemuns, in 2013 after obtaining an associate’s degree in product Development from FIDM. What initially began as a denim brand has since expanded into a niche luxe ready-to-wear label, quickly garnering acclaim from industry insiders and music celebrities alike. A self described ‘outcast,’ Flemons sought to create alternate worlds through his designs -- ones wherein he felt safe, included, and accepted -- unknowing at the time that he was one of a handful of young designers helping pioneer L.A.'s fashion resurgence. Conceived as more than just a clothing line, Phlemuns ultimately seeks to bring people together through the creation of community. By defying convention, Flemons has built a sustainably-minded and gender-inclusive label centered in fair labor practices. The designer’s unisex staples -- slouchy cargo pants, boxy jackets, and soft jersey t-shirts -- feature atypical cuts, unexpected proportions, and loud patterns. Impactful without being over-the-top, Phlemuns speaks to a timeless sensibility reflective of the contemporary moment.
