Générique Mode


When an Irishman chooses Paris as the base for his male prêt-à-porter brand, the resulting cocktail is bound to be chic and invigorating, be it in a classic or casual mould.

  4. Hollington


An adopted Parisian born on the Emerald Isle, Patric Hollington founded his label in 1974 in the Odéon district. Midway between Saint-Germain-des-Près and the Latin Quarter, the intellectual Left Bank was still resonating from the demonstrations of May 1968, and the designer embarked on his very own revolution by incorporating some striking innovations in the sacrosanct man’s suit, such as the Mao collar and the carpenter-collar jacket, which have remained among the brand’s classic items.

He drew his inspiration from diverse source in the world of work, in keeping with the spirit of the times… Since then, Hollington, a man with an insatiable curiosity and thirst for novelty, has incorporated myriad influences in his annual collections (Japan, Sweden, jazz, Russian music, Bauhaus, etc.). His commitment to quality does the rest: each garment is cut from the finest fabric (Italian cotton, Irish wool, Scottish tweed and velvet, etc.), and tailored for maximum ease and comfort. Artfully, he creates looks reminiscent of a conspicuously chic post-revolutionary, or a far-from-stuffy gentleman-farmer…
