Treasure the Past, enhance the Present...
Yvette LIBBY N'guyen, specialist in outerwear, redefines fashion by offering an elegant silhouette, inspired by the past and in line with today's challenges.
Inspired by the history of Europe and Asia, inclusive, ethical and eco- responsible, Yvette LIBBY N'guyen allows everyone to access elegance.
Inherited the artisanal treasure from the family since 1928, after more than 90 years of the rise and fall of the family within the historical events, Yvette LIBBY N’guyen Paris was reshaped in 2016 in Paris, to keep the timeless spirit alive, where the stories of Madame Yvette (the artisan ancestor) have a specific influence on each of the brand’s designs.
The brand is inspired by the fashionableness of the nostalgic revival of a style, the timeless sophistication, also called retro-cool.
The brand has endless passion is in Outerwear for women, men, and children: jacket, coat, trench-coat, blazer, “manteaux”.
Most of the styles are unisex that every gender is fashionable in. Utmostly, Yvette LIBBY focuses on the ecological finished products, friendly with your skin and environment while they always keep you in fashion.
The products have been expertly manufactured with a premium ecological material, using carefully selected quality textile processed using natural methods:
any apparent imperfections are actually unique natural features of the textile and accessories: Hemp, Cotton, Linen, Brocade, Silk...
All of buttons are made from natural shell, horn, corozo,...in vegetable dyeing colors.
Each detail and all finishing are guaranteed by high-quality control standards that are the hallmark of a product that is still highly artisanal in terms of attention to detail and manufacturing.
Unique: Each design is unique and there's a maximum of 2 pieces/size due to the scarcity of material sources and qualified artisans.
History is full of sublime creations that end up in museums, inaccessible on a daily basis. Why relegate these masterpieces to a vague imagery when they are sometimes perfectly modern?
Likewise, the exploits of the past end up in the history books as they are no longer seen as stages in a progress that seems endless.
However, all these achievements deserve more according to Yvette LIBBY N'guyen.
It is by drawing its inspiration from bygone eras that the brand succeeds in offering original creations that seem familiar.
"Asia and Europe never meet" say some.
But from Japonism to Fan Yang, via Kenzo Takada or Issey Miyake, fashion, especially French fashion, has long shown the way for a real encounter.
Yvette LIBBY follows this particularly fruitful path thanks to her Vietnamese roots and her Parisian roots.
All in silhouette
When fashion is gendered, it does not allow you to choose according to the silhouette you want but according to the ones you are offered.
By re-examining this code, Yvette LIBBY gives consumers the freedom to adopt the line they want, allowing them to be themselves.
This is why a large part of the range can be qualified as unisex pieces.
“Gender-neutrality is not a taste, it’s a human sensation.” - Lib N’GUYEN, designer of the brand.
Can a fashion brand ignore respect for people and their environment?
Yvette LIBBY N'guyen thinks it's impossible.
This is why all the techniques allowing to reduce the impact of the manufacture of clothes are implemented: natural dyes, natural and organic fibers, use of dormant stocks, buttons in shell or horn, etc.
Thus, Yvette LIBBY N'guyen contributes to its scale responses to current climate challenges.
Because those who make are an essential link in the quality of the finished product, Yvette LIBBY N'guyen has created her own clothing workshop in Vietnam.
By offering working conditions above the country's standards, it ensures the support and involvement of those who are full members of the company. They are often the ones who propose solutions during manufacture, to solve the technical problems encountered.
They also guarantee an impeccable finish and the most pleasant wearing possible.
