José Lévy was born in Paris.
In complete contrast to the codes of the time, which exalted the values of the 1980s, his clothing collections drew inspiration from Tati, Modiano, and Jacques Demy, ensuring him immediate visibility and international recognition.
He received several awards, including one from the City of Paris, and exhibited at the Cartier Foundation.
Over the course of 13 years, José Lévy established his presence in the world of men's fashion and distinguished himself as both an exceptional colorist and a precise tailor.
Simultaneously, he embarked on significant external collaborations, directing the style of Holland & Holland, Nina Ricci, Cacharel, and Emanuel Ungaro. Eager to reach a wider audience, he also collaborated with Monoprix, La Redoute, and André.
As a free and curious creator, eclectic and focused, he has always expressed his unique perspective by collaborating with numerous artists, photographers, visual artists, architects, and musicians throughout his career.
Since 2007, he has dedicated himself entirely to this interdisciplinary creative work, bridging the gap between visual arts and decorative arts.
In 2009, he exhibited at Emmanuel Perrotin (solo exhibition "Oasis: Luconoctambul!"), ToolsGalerie (group exhibition "Carpet Stories"), and the Manufacture de Sèvres (solo exhibition "Mousse de Sèvres"). He was invited by Maxalto during DesignersDays and designed MaPharmacie, a pharmacy in Paris-Bastille.
By expressing his universe, José Lévy enjoys unearthing memories, traces of the past, archetypes, and the roots of the Houses he encounters, playing with them and offering a free, distanced, and respectful perspective.
