"Verlan" is a language game of reversing the syllables of a word. Even if it is an old French tradition, it is since the 1990s and the advent of hip-hop culture that the verlan has been adopted by all. Fashion is a language, Verlan, our brand, is the language of our generation. We like to share our memories, the things we love and the people we admire; among others: Jean Prouvé and Dr. Dre, Romy Schneider and Michael Schumacher, Takashi Murakami and Thierry Henry.
Rules of the game are simple:
1. All our garments are available in limited editions and are hand-numbered. Less is more. We don’t have stock or very few. Most of our garments are available via pre-order, so we can better anticipate volumes and then cut the unsold pieces. Again, less is more.
2. We don’t have any release calendar nor we oblige ourselves to respect the 2 to 4 seasons per year fashion calendar. We prefer think at our own pace, garment after garment. Each and every piece starts with a real client need (that means you), a profound want of creating (that means us) and is the consequence of months of research from the best suppliers and production ateliers.
3. No sales. We conceive garments at a fair price. Without unnecessary margins. Nonetheless, we can sometimes offer delivery costs on the spur of the moment as after a goal of Marco Verratti or a winning game of Jo Wilfried Tsonga. In that case, we then inform you on Instagram or by email.
Welcome in the family.
