What do Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson, Rachel Bilson, Kristen Stewart, and Jessica Biel all have in common? (Other than being famous actors, that is!) They are all fans of Artisan de Luxe.
Artisan de Luxe is a high-end brand of men and women's clothing. The clothes are vintage inspired, and embody artisan craftsmanship. Artisans are workers in a skilled trade that create things by hand, such as leather, beaded jewelry, or art, for example. Founders Jay Furrow and Philippe Naouri have successfully infused this influence into the brand. Naouri finds his inspiration for the collections by watching true artisans at work.
The brand specializes in top-quality denim, but also includes woven and knit shirts, dresses, scarves, and accessories, all with a vintage feel. What truly makes the brand stand out aesthetically, is the detailed construction of the pieces. Vintage wash treatments, leather embellishments and patchwork, contrast fabric applications, and hand stitching all make for a uniquely inspired collection.
A-listers, athletes, and reality stars alike have been spotted wearing pieces from Artisan de Luxe. From movie star Pierce Brosnan, to "The City"'s Whitney Port, Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, and tennis champ Venus Williams, this clothing line is all over Hollywood.
The first Artisan de Luxe collection was showcased in the summer of 2009. Since then, pieces from the brand have been featured in countless magazines, newspapers, and blogs, proving to be very popular for stars and readers alike!
If celebrities and fashion lovers didn't already have enough of a reason to wear clothing from Artisan de Luxe, A.M.E.N. by Artisan de Luxe is yet another incentive. It stands for Always Meet Every Need, and it aims to do just that. The founders of Artisan de Luxe have teamed up with The A.M.E.N. Initiative to create "clothing with a conscience." In the Mokanji Village in Sierra Leone, unisex garments are finished by hand, using local techniques. This creates opportunities for artisans in this area to gain employment, and for consumers in North America to purchase one-of-a-kind garments.
Artisan de Luxe is a unique, high-end fashion brand that gives back. It is no wonder so many celebrities are loving their vintage and bohemian-inspired look!
