Coltesse invites you to explore materials, minimalist creation, a fine approach to detail and finishing. Italian and Japanese materials are transformed by the manipulations of Florent Biard, the brand's designer. With its neo-classical collections - developed in France - of shirts, trousers, jackets and coats, Coltesse makes practical elegance its speciality. The name Coltesse refers to casual but sophisticated fashion and to Bernard-Marie Koltès, the contemporary French author. Like him, the Paris-based label is spreading its character and distinctive point of view outside France, particularly in Asia, where its understated sophistication is becoming increasingly popular.
