J. LEGACEE was established in 2017, by Jeremy Bruno and Jeffrey Platteel.
Jeremy Bruno has been professionally designing and developing products for multiple brands, since he graduated with honors from the art academy in 2009.
Jeffrey Platteel is a respected sales and brand manager in the fashion and footwear industry. He is experienced in developing strategies and structures to improve overall business and product line success for international brands.
Both founders grew up in families that moved to the Netherlands in search of a better life. Their parents often reminded them that nothing is given and that they needed to work hard to get somewhere.
Jeremy and Jeffrey’s paths first crossed in 2014, while working together extensively on a different venture.
During this professional collaboration, they not only recognized and respected each other’s skills, but also developed a strong friendship.
Having a lot in common, combined with their similar professional goals and dreams, fueled the drive to build their own brand and leave a legacy.
They aptly named their brand J. LEGACEE.
The J. stands for Jay, a unisex name that means ‘victorious’ and which reflects the strong winner’s mentality that both founders posses.
By creating high quality products that represent the perfect balance between function, style, comfort and attitude, J. LEGACEE aims to leave their mark in street culture.
J. LEGACEE creates high quality footwear, without losing sight of functionality and comfort.
To ensure this high level of quality, all of our products are produced in Portugal and are made with fine leather fabrics.
The special insole provides full arch support, so that you can stand firm in any situation. Our asymmetrical design creates a unique silhouette, which will make you stand out from the crowd. We have even imprinted our core values on the outsole, so that they travel with you wherever you go.
All of our footwear products are presented in a luxurious shoebox, including protective cushioning and a sample of our fragrances.
By putting quality over quantity in everything that we do, we gain focus and our collection reflects this.
We have created a divided product line with different styles that are all based on our core Mid-top model.
Unlike other brands, the yearly seasons do not dictate our collection. Instead, we put together a selection of styles, with different color and fabric options to choose from all year round.
Everyone has a unique identity. That is why we divided our collection over three different styles, so that you can find the right fit.
Our entire footwear collection is designed to be unisex.
All the sneakers in our Essentials line have a clean and basic feel to them with minimal use of colors. The Essentials line consists of two high quality types of sneakers: the J1 and the J2.
These two types differ in use of fabric and finishing details. We believe the sneakers of our Essentials line are essential to have in any collection.
Sports is our core streetwear line that just breathes coolness. Our J3 sneaker represents this line and is made by combining different colors and fabrics. It also distinguishes itself by having a detailed pattern on the side.
This pattern combined with the white lining and outsole, gives the J3 its genuine sports feel.
Our Lux line provides you with a sneaker that looks and feels luxurious, yet still fresh.
Our J4 sneaker embodies comfort and status with its distinguished cognac lining, grey sole and detailed finish.
All footwear from the Lux line comes with a custom branded J. LEGACEE shoe tensioner as an extra addition to the luxurious shoebox.
To enhance the J. LEGACEE experience we have developed our own fragrance line.
We feel that scents are something special.
Smell is mankind’s most sensitive sense and also the only one directly connected to the emotional part of the human brain. This means that all feelings that arise from smelling are pure and true.
We have searched and tested until we found the right scents for J. LEGACEE.
We proudly offer the Iris Wood 08 and the Iris Wood 09
Iris Wood 08 (Homme)
This fragrance contains notes of the sweet iris and tuberose flower, carefully mixed with various spices. By adding notes of wood, rum and even leather the Iris Wood 08 gets its unique and distinguishable scent.
A fragrance for men that is not too sweet and not too robust, a perfect balance.
Iris Wood 09 (Femme).
This fragrance draws inspiration from the Iris Wood 08 by having similar ingredients like iris, wood and leather. However, the Iris Wood 09 creates its own unique identity by containing a different mixture of various spices and by adding notes of vanilla and bergamot.
A fragrance for women that is sweet and fresh, but still keeps its edge.
To leave a legacy, is to leave something meaningful behind.
To be remembered for what you created and to be an inspiration for those who dare to chase their dreams.
J. LEGACEE aims to leave their mark in street culture by creating unique products while respecting function, comfort, attitude and style. J. LEGACEE puts quality over quantity and has a strong focus, which is reflected in their product lines.
The two founders of J. LEGACEE both grew up in the 90’s and share a love for hip-hop culture. It is in this culture where you can create something unique by sampling, mixing and mastering different styles.
No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone has its own identity and style.
J. LEGACEE has found and embraced its identity, using it as an inspiration to excel at everything they do.
These core values represent J. LEGACEE:
If you are persistent, nobody can keep you from reaching your goals. Giving up is never an option.
It is impossible to create a legacy without having the discipline to make you go the extra mile.
Be truly unique, go against the grain and have the confidence to own it.
Dealing with setbacks accordingly requires patience. If you practice enough patience you can channel these setbacks into a positive experience.
Never stand still, look ahead and envision the journey you embark on.
Carefully plan out the route to your next goal, and the next, and the next, and the next.
Keep imagining, it is the first step of creating something awesome.
Trust your guts
Never do something if it does not feel right, always stay true to yourself.
