The jacket of Guy Azoulay’s dreams, the founder of Chevignon. The jacket resembled the fly jackets worn by pilots in the United States Army Air Forces in the 1950s, with the same charming yet comfortable and robust style, but this jacket would bear the name of a Frenchman, Charles Chevignon. Born in 1979 from the talent of a man who dreamed of America, Chevignon, a teenage icon and a reference in street culture, has continuously evolved ever since, the latest trends part of its very DNA.
As the inventor of aged leather and a market leader for leather jackets, Chevignon revisits its iconic pieces, which include the fly jacket, the bomber jacket, the teddy and the puffa jacket, every year, combining the energy of US sports with a nod to the brand’s history, allowing its creativity free rein on the male wardrobe.
Chevignon is something of a rare bird in that it designs and produces in France beautiful garments that are made to last, reflecting the adage ‘what is beautiful stays beautiful’.
