ABOUT LE MONT SAINT MICHEL
Le Mont St Michel is a young brand with a long history. Specialized in everlasting Workwear since 1913, the brand was taken over in 1998 by Alexandre Milan who turned it into a urban & modern fashion label, yet in line with the functional soul coming from its workwear legacy.
Alexandre Milan added to this legacy his own family craftsmanship - which is almost as old : the legacy of Les Tricotages de L'Aa ("Aa Knitting Factory"), factory founded by his great grandmother in 1919. The brand's design studio is still located in the very same location in French Brittany, where their meticulously store decades of textile archives: a genuine treasure when it comes to inspiration and which they revisit for each collection.
