Etienne Deroeux is an emerging French designer. Trained in Belgium at Antwerp’s Royal Academy and La Cambre in Brussels, he has collaborated with various fahion houses in Paris, London, and New York. Enhanced by these experiences, Etienne Deroeux presented his first collection ‘Saison Un’ in 2011 during Paris fashion week. His line evokes elegance, quality and remains timeless. All materials used are natural and handpicked carefully. The pieces are produced in France in limited copies, with each garment hand-numbered from 1 to 100, ensuring authenticity and exclusivity to each piece. Thanks to a subtle blend of tradition and modernity, his clothes offer the comfort of true, yet quiet luxury.
