Style icon Breguet celebrates 70 years with new look
Breguso’s 70th anniversary is fast approaching.
The French designer’s classic dress and accessories are available online and in boutiques around the world, and the designers own brand has become a hit in the past few years.
The brand has been sold in over 20 countries and there is a growing focus on the brand’s latest designs.
Bregucet was born in Paris in 1928 and rose to prominence as the world’s first designer for men’s wear.
Born in London, he moved to Paris to be closer to his father, who had established the brand.
His father died when he was a teenager and Breguscas mother died when Bregos young age.
“He had no idea of the way that fashion would change,” Bregusto recalled in an interview with BBC Sport.
“The way we went from a fashion shop to a brand, he thought was very strange, but he knew that it was the right thing to do.”
Bregucces father died, but his mother was able to pass on the company to his children.
“My father didn’t know about the company and my mother didn’t.
They were in love with it, they were really passionate about it, and they were doing their best to run it,” he said.
“I think the most important thing is that the brand is here and the products are here and that people feel good about it.”
The collection is being launched in a number of countries including the US, UK, France and Germany, and there are even plans to expand in the US.
Brescia-based designer and founder of Breguerot Boutique, René Breguzio, has been making clothes since he was 13 years old.
The fashion designer was inspired to start a business when his mother died, and in his youth he began designing his own clothes and shoes.
He was also the founder of the Bregutos Boutique in Bresca, Italy, where he has since sold the company.
“A lot of the stuff I make is for my mother,” he told BBC Sport in an exclusive interview.
“But I also have the best clothes for my kids.”
The designer’s son René, now 22, also started working at Breguxet when he started at 17, and is now in charge of the brand, which also makes clothing for his father’s fashion company, Breguto, as well as for the fashion industry.
“It’s a family business,” René said.
René’s father, an architect, was one of the founding members of the company, and his son Renaud was in charge from 2003 until last year.
“When he died, it was very difficult for us to carry on,” Renaud said.
Brest-based fashion designer Olivier Bregiero, who also started as a designer, said his father-in-law, Renaud Breguzzo, also passed away and the family took on his duties.
“We were really proud of him, but the work took a while,” Olivier Bresiero told BBC News.
“As a child I was a little bit shy.
He wasn’t afraid, he was very outgoing.
I loved working with him.”
He said the family felt “fortunate that he made a lot of friends” and was the “greatest father in the world”.
“I love him very much, I love him a lot.
We had to take care of each other.”
The brand is currently run by Bregufos son Renu and his sister Maria.
Renu is in charge as well, but in an effort to make his son’s designs even better, he has started to take a more active role in the company in recent years.
“You see that Renu wants to work on more, but Renu also wants to have fun, to be able to show off his ideas,” Olivier said.
“I’m the first to admit that my dad is very sad, and I don’t blame him for that,” Renu said.
In his early 20s, Renu moved to Italy to work with the fashion designer Mario Ferrara, who was in the business for several years.
Renuer said that Ferrara taught him the importance of respecting your customers.
“And I was happy that I could do that,” he recalled.
“In the end, I was able, and it was important that I did that.”
Renu’s father also worked with Ferrara in the early years and said that he was the one who taught Renu how to approach his customers.
He said that when Renu started working in the fashion business, he didn’t think much about the work.
“If he wanted to do something, he would do it,” Renue said.
