A glimpse into La Maison Godefroi
We’ve recently made you discover a few tremendous brands from Montreal, and here’s one that you can’t miss.
We’ve had the pleasure to meet the very passionate Charles-Olivier Pilon, a young Montreal Entrepreneur who has launched his very first luxury brand, Maison Godefroi. The idea was to bring back a trend from the 80’s by reinterpreting it into a classy wardrobe. Maison Godefroi proposes a various line of leather ties. bow ties and label flowers both for men and women. Minimalist, the line is easy to combine with many outfits. There is also a variety of colors and patterns to give a fair bit of sophistication to a plain look. Not to mention that every piece is developed locally, thus you can assure yourselves that all is well made and hand made. The ties are even sewed on the inside. All of their fabrics and materials are from Italy, a country with the most luxurious and most durable leather. The quality definitely does not deceive.
Ties were first worn from soldiers or people belonging to a certain group in the 17th century . It has been in the culture for a very long time. About 60 years ago, designers and manufacturers of neckties in the United States were members of the Men’s Dress Furnishings Association but the trade group shut down in 2008 due to declining membership due to the declining numbers of men wearing neckties. Ties, nowadays, are accessories and decoration. Ties are also seen as a symbol of the elite of the society.
It only took one touch of Italian leather one fine day, for him to feel the quality of unmatched flexibility and softness and more importantly, to fall in love with this sublime material and finally make it his life’s work. – Maison Godefroi Website
