Jab! by Vera Nederlof® is a –boxing couture– label inspired by the boxing sport since 2022. The ‘Jab!’ is a basic punche in every boxer’s repertoire. It helps you set up your range and establish your position. Clothes and accessoires combined with or made of boxing related items and signatured with prints of boxing art. It’s not streetwear òr sportswear, it’s not casual òr chic, it’s hybrid and makes your clothes to a unique artwork!
Combining different cultures creates a refreshing new world. A world you can connect with and in which you can have your own strong identity at the same time. Boxing, art and clothes combine into a wearable unique piece of art which shows your personality and what you stand for. Backgrounds, cultures and gender find each other. Nelson Mandela -himself a boxer and big boxing fan- said: “in the ring everyone is equal”. By wearing Jab! by Vera Nederlof® you bridge different worlds.
Your waistcoat, pantalon, colbert, short, shirt, coat, dress can be integrated with specific boxing related items like boxing hand wraps, satin like in boxing shorts or as a boxing kimono, embroidery, a punching bag, speedball or skipping rope. Signatured with boxing art by Vera Nederlof. Your clothing will be a unique artwork, up cycled and sustainable.
Also available in accessories like bags, scarves, towels, and dog jackets. Of course we can also have a look at your specific dream to create your personal item.

Vera Nederlof decided to start boxing after a long period of classical ballet dancing. “Boxing is like dancing but with more improvisation. It’s like a pas de deux, but instead of dancing with someone, you dance ‘against’ your opponent. Boxing gives me freedom, it gives me strength, it gives me self-confidence and fun. I see it like playing chess with my body, it gives me people knowledge and it’s a way to express myself with my boxing artworks”.
Vera Nederlof wants to combine the two worlds of boxing and art in very different ways. “For example, I like to show my artworks as a performance exhibition; as a ring card girl in the boxing ring showing my artwork during a boxing match. Recently I worked on a mural of a rope skipping boxer. I always keep exploring what I can do more with my drawings and always try to cross boundaries. JAB! By Vera Nederlof Boxing Couture® is my newest concept.”
