LimoLand is the brainchild of its European founder, Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi. Frustrated that he couldn’t find clothing that matched his colorful and casual aesthetic, Johnny created LimoLand in 2007. As founder and creative director, Johnny is the heart and soul of the brand, which represents the culmination of his many years collecting and creating art, working with colors and prints, and travelling the world. Luxurious and free-spirited, splashed with quirky patterns and bright colors, LimoLand is a lifestyle brand for individuals who, like Johnny, “LIVE TO CREATE”.
Johnny was born in Paris and currently spends his time between Switzerland, Panama, France, England, and the United States. A man of many pursuits, he is a venture capitalist, philanthropist, photographer and art collector - he has assembled the world’s largest collection of Contemporary African Art, and more recently has been collecting Contemporary Japanese Art. He has exhibited his photography at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, the Gagosian Gallery in New York, and at the Arles Photography Show in France. In 2004, Johnny founded the Liquid Jungle Lab, a state-of-the-art research facility in Panama devoted to environmental conservation.
