CALAMITY JANE

Their fateful excursion resulted in a lineup of dresses, tops, bodysuits, and leggings characterized by loose volumes, luxe fabrics, and artisanal embellishments. Mineral prints in turquoise and rust, which serve to accent the pieces, recall the soils and sediments Cameron and Farina observed.

Eon maintains a small footprint to ensure not only the traceability of its products but also their exclusivity.

Unlike Jane, however, Eon’s M.O. lies on the straight and narrow. The nascent business maintains a small footprint to ensure not only the traceability of its products but also their exclusivity. Each item includes a unique serial number, as well as the names of the people involved in its design, construction, and manufacture. “We thought that providing the names of the person who participated in the creation of a garment would make the consumer feel closer to the product,” Cameron tells Ecouterre.

Despite the Californian provenance of its fall collection, Eon sources its materials as locally as possible, mostly in downtown Paris. That, along with in-house production, allows the designers to keep the quality of their garments at the level they prefer.

Cameron and Farina’s personal journeys mirror that of their anti-heroine’s, albeit with less gunfire. Cameron honed her skills at Jean Paul Gaultier and Maison Martin Margiela while Farina did time at Julien Fournier. The two even met over a drink, where a passionate discussion over fashion issues ensued.

Thankfully, neither proposed a duel; they chose instead to combine their talents. The rest, as they say, is history. “A garment is, before anything, a way to express ourselves and to convey a message on themes we really care about,” Cameron says. “Our goal is also to emphasize the value of clothing, which has become nowadays a worthless consumer’s mass product.”
