Le Mont St Michel is a young brand with a long history. The company, that has specialized in producing sturdy work garments since 1913, was relaunched in 1998 by Alexandre Milan who transformed it into an urban, modern fashion label that remains faithful to the functional mood of its workwear heritage. Today Le Mont St Michel also integrates the know-how of Milan’s own ancestors since his great-grandmother founded the Aa knitwear factory in 1919. The company’s design studio is still located on the same Brittany site as this factory and its archives.
For Summer 2019, the brand has undertaken a reflection on how garments wear and developed an exclusive washing technique, the Vintage Wash, that has a perfectly worn-out look. In contrast, classic pieces are given a more modern take in fluorescents. A 100% recycled sweater range extends the brand’s commitment to a slow consumption that respects human beings and the environment. To complete the wardrobe, Le Mont St Michel offers a Made in France denim line, for men and women, a throwback to blue jeans from the 60s and 70s.
