Tradition and modernity, passion and family heritage, style and durability: if Le Mont St Michel continues to dress women and men more than a hundred years after its birth, it is because our clothes are enriched by the marks of time and their roots rather than trying to get rid of them.
Staying in tune while going against the grain of the times. Soak up the past while taking the pulse of today's society. To drink of plural cultures by anchoring itself in our Breton territory. This is the singularity of our brand, taken over in 1998 by Alexandre Milan, a child of knitting. This is what makes us get up every morning to work to offer you a modern and urban wardrobe in which you feel good and that you enjoy wearing.
You will have understood that at Mont St Michel, we like to cultivate our differences because they are what make our DNA.
This singularity is found even in the choice of location of our design studios. It is in the countryside, at the Monthorin estate, a few kilometers from Mont Saint Michel, that our collections are designed, season after season, to the rhythm of nature.
Calm, wide open spaces, family roots and textile heritage: all the conditions are here to create a setting conducive to inspiration and creation.
"Mont St Michel forged its reputation in the 20th century by providing farmers and craftsmen in Brittany and Normandy with functional and solid pieces. When we took over the company, it was obvious for us to continue to develop this brand in the area where it was born", say Alexandre and Marie. Each member of our team has chosen to live in the countryside by joining the Mont St Michel adventure. In its rigor as in its beauty, nature is our first source of inspiration on a daily basis.
It must be said that the brand's studio has an unparalleled authenticity and serenity. A wood as far as the eye can see, two large and beautiful ponds, pleasant offices installed in former stables from the 19th century, outbuildings housing past collections, a vegetable garden and a magnificent greenhouse... It's hard to imagine a better working environment!
This bucolic universe may seem unexpected, out of time and out of preconceived patterns. However, it is at the heart of our history, of our daily lifestyle and of our creative process which requires time, know-how and inspiration.
Each of our pieces and our collections are imbued with it, as Alexandre explains: "The nature that surrounds us inspires us to make clothes that are above all functional, made to last and live with you.
Quality, durability, functionality, history and style.
So many criteria in our eyes essential and inseparable.
So many singularities that we nourish since Monthorin, to make our creations unique and make you want to appropriate them and wear them year after year...
