The marine trend makes us want to go out!
It's soon summer here with the sea, the beach and seashells...Of course, we're not quite there yet, but beautiful days are here, and adults and their children only have one idea in mind: on a long weekend, raise the sails to go on the coast. You don't have to be landlubbers and can become freshwater pirates. Rubber boots to fish for mussels, boat shoes and striped ballerina flats are the must-have accessories to adopt this style and board marine style.
For Sebago, you don't need useless details to be stylish : here, well-being and manufacturing quality are the most important! In the new collection, you will find the authentic boat shoe, just as practical on a sailboat as it is comfortable on dry land...
To give you the chance to live in harmony with nature: that is the ambition of Aigle. Appearing in France in 1853, they have developed a unique know-how to offer those passionate about outdoor activities functional and durable products. Hiking, skiing, horseback riding, boating: Aigle has invested themselves in numerous sports and developed technical products that respond to your every need. Between globe-trotting boots and urban adventurer shoes, the brand has even made the famous rubber rain boot a must-have. To wear Aigle is to let yourself go to nature, to preserve natural resources, to open yourself up to the world and take note of the beauty of nature.
In the early '70s, Tommy Hilfiger was a mere 18 years old when he decided to move to New York City to find the latest jeans and bell-bottom trousers, with the goal of personalising them and selling them. He then opened his first boutique, which was short-lived, but then launched the Tommy Hilfiger Corporation in 1984 which allowed him to develop his own collection of men's clothing. Classic, cool and a little dandy all at once, his models were a quick success and made Tommy Hilfiger one of the world's most famous brands, even today among young urban trendsetters. The brand has now branched into suitcases, bags, backpacks, business cases and more ... the followers of Tommy Hilfiger can push their passion even further with a range of luggage in the same spirit sport chic range.
In browsing through the inventory of armies around the world to stock their store, "Surplus Bensimon," the two brothers Bensimon discovered a huge stock of white trainers: they then had the brilliant idea to dye them in a multitude of colours. Bensimon arrived in France in the 1980s, and found phenomenal success when they launched their products. Rainbow colours, a super comfortable and custom trainer which has a timeless design and chameleon like quality that allows everyone to wear it with any style. Today, the Bensimon trainer has truly become a "must have" and their collections have expanded to clothing, bags and accessories in basic colours (black has no place), bright and fashion neutral but with a genuine spirit.
Created in 2002, Crocs commercialized a revolutionary clog designed for nautical activities. Ultra-light, waterproof, and with a anti-slop sole, they were designed to make the practise of outdoor sports more comfortable and safe. However, in 2003, the shoe now known as "the Croc" became an overnight sensation. Recognised for their comfort, today they are for the whole family and can be seen all over the beaches as soon as summer starts!
