Monsieur Madone is a band of friends, dedicated travelers, each a champion in his category and waves’ lovers. From place to place, they imagine, and each journey turns into a tailor-made travel diary, the ready-to-wear concept mirroring their personality. They draw a line both relaxed and chic, easy to wear, bursting out of the water and breaking into the night.
Spring 2011, La Joya, California, an unexpected fresco appears on their road ahead: the “Madonna of the Surfers”, protector of the oceans and its adepts. They witness how Monsieur Madone is born, under a good star.
Philosophy of Monsieur Madone:
In the city as well as on the beach, Monsieur Madone enhances an authentic and elegant look. With a refined body, he cares about style but is cool and grounded.
He: displays the three French creators’ spirit of quality and details. He: appreciates the comfort of the fashioned in Italy and Portugal products.
Where we are :
- We collaborate with Europeans fabric suppliers and garment makers who are willing to develop quality products in limited series;
- We have developed a beachwear line for men (swimming shorts and light sweaters for spring and summer) in colors and fabrics that are inspired by a journey to Tahiti;
- The products are made with nice high-end fabrics (fast dry nylon, mother-of-pearl buttons, etc.) and with care (embroideries, sewings, etc.)
- A template and a prototype were developed and accepted for each model;
- Retailers are diffusing our products in France and Italy ;
- A lot of good friends have helped out since the beginning;
What we still have to do :
- Buy fabrics and accessories necessary to build up the products;
- Export the brand in the USA ;
