ARCHIVE 18-20, created in 2015 by Severine Lahyani, is a fashion company located in Paris’ Marais neighborhood. Its 500 sqm workshop, “hidden” under an immense glass roof, seems suspended in time. In this new type of urban garden, the designer believes fashion should reflect a lifestyle and the pleasure she has in sharing her vision of contemporary creation.
Today the Archive 18-20 brand answers this need for style to be an expression of one’s self and the opportunity to play with and mix references: modern and vintage, masculine and feminine … the alliance of luxury and carefree streetwear.
The SS19 collection is made up of vintage pieces reworked in small series that are then developed in more technical materials for a different interpretation. A collection of shirts in re-edited prints, a pant library ranging from chinos to cargo styles, a series of polo shirts … and a sweatshirt in a wide 1980s color range.
