Who are you?
We are two Parisian brothers passionate about surfing!
How did you start in fashion?
Everything has started with our swimsuit. As we have been looking into old surfers pictures of the 50's, we were frustrated not to find slim cut boardshorts, slightly short with an authentic fabric. Then, we wanted to share our universe, we decided to extend the range to a total look.
How would you define your style?
Our style is classic, long-lasting, discreet. We differentiate ourself through raw materials, light details without false style effects.
What inspires you?
We clearly draw our inspiration from 50's surfing in California: the style of the Gentleman Surfer!
What are you most proud of?
We are proud to get a recognition on the other side of the Atlantic, especially in NYC where we were highlighted several times in the media as pioneers of a brand new urban surfing movement.
Where do you manufacture your products?
Our products are manufactured in Europe: France, Spain, Portugal, and Italy. Manufacturers are independently selected to maintain a total control over quality.
Where can we find your collection?
In NYC, Paris, Tokyo, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Korea.
