The jeans conquer the world

Diesel #2

The Italian fashion label was founded in 1978 and with the sale of jeans they managed to educate a billion dollar turnover as a global player. The assortment of Italians is constantly extended by shoes, wristwatches, glasses, perfumes and underwear. The philosophy of designer Renzo Rosso was, as diesel was an alternative to petrol in the oil crisis of the 1970s, not to equate fashion with current trends, but to develop its own style. So in 1985 the new jeans began to work with sandpaper and stones as if it had been worn for years. At that time the jeans style was called “saddle”. Diesel’s jeans jacket also achieves cult status. In 2008, the brand presents a luxury collection “Black Gold” for the first time. More expensive than the previous products, but worn by many celebrities.

Rossos success concept : “be stupid”

G-Star has always stood for a rejuvenated and harmonious image. While trends, styles and fashion epochs changed, G-Star always remained attractive and authentic.

G-Star property : ” original and genuine, stylish, fashionable and functional “

Pepe Jeans #4

It’s a story, like in the book. Three brothers – Nitin , Arun, Milan had a small market stall in the middle of London in 1973. Made of boring, anonymous trousers, the boys let their creativity run free and turned these trousers into detailed creations that the youngsters bought in Notting Hill. The fashion label was created on the street of London. Today, Pepe jeans are known for the perfect fit and urban look.

History: From craftsman and designer to superstar of fashion

In 1854, the French designer and craftsman Louis Vuitton (also entrepreneur) founded the Paris luxury goods company Louis Vuitton Malletier S.A., which initially concentrated on the production and sale of exquisite luggage and suitcases. Over the years, the company has gained worldwide popularity and expanded its products as a result. Even today, luxurious luggage is still an important part of Louis Vuitton. In addition, precious clothing for him and her, bags, backpacks, belts, wallets, shoes, jewellery, perfumes and watches are also available. The monogram pattern of many Louis Vuitton products, consisting of the initials of the company founder, “LV”, was first introduced in 1896.
