Founded in 2012, Coltesse explores premium materials through minimalistic designs and a unique approach to detail and finish. The materials are imported from Japan and Italy and are subjected to meticulous sourcing before passing through, founder and designer, Florent Coltesse's hands.
The Coltesse collection aims to rejuvenate the classics. It is all about "practical elegance"– a contrasting but harmonious mix of sophistication and casual.
This is the reason why the name of the brand, Coltesse, refers to Bernard-Marie Koltès. This modern French author used to interpret classics from his very personal point of view.
Thus Coltesse is the representation of Florent Coltesse's modern and minimal point of view on menswear.
