J. MIN VEDOVELLI
designer and maker
Born in Madrid in 1987, I grew up in Seoul. Since 2012 I'm based in Paris. My heart does and always will belong to Seoul, tough. I studied at ESMOD Paris and La fabrique Paris, have worked in Paris with such different brands as & Other Stories, Isabel Marant and others.
Currently I’m working on a personal project: A handmade leather goods collection that I would like to launch from Paris soon.
my preferred spot for a morning coffee
240 Itaewon-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
Based in an old house that’s been renovated with great architectural taste. More importantly, their coffee is simply the best.

here’s where I buy my books
57-6, Yanghwa-ro 6gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
So thoughtfully curated and selected!

Four locations throughout the city
Vintage style clothes full of fun prints and with unusual construction.

Nice pasta and good selection of beer. The little terrace is perfect to chill out with friends.
