Interview | Fabrice Tardieu

Fabrice Tardieu has been working in the fashion industry for over a decade. In 2004 he started a shirt company, Bogosse that was sold in Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. He then decided to go to the next level and in 2014 created his own namesake collection found at select Neiman Marcus throughout the US. Fabrice Tardieu has taken his travels and cultures in to designing a collection with a combination of street wear and tailoring. He took a moment to answer a couple of my questions about the brand.

Who is the Fabrice Tarieu man?
The Fabrice Tardieu man is successful, confident professional that understands how to dress smart without a suit and tie and takes pride in wearing crafted menswear featuring outstanding quality and fit. 
Fabrice Tardieu is designed to be easily integrated into professional wardrobes but to also serve as standout pieces for casual weekend wear.

What inspired the Fall 15 collection?
My Fall/Winter 2015 collection is the result of my love and passion for different art forms, cultures and aesthetics. For over a decade I have continuously had a vision to design menswear that represents elegance and sophistication while still being young at heart. 
What's your favorite piece from the collection?
This is such a hard question as the collection is so diverse and I love each piece. If I had to choose I would say either the cashmere-jogging suit, kangaroo bomber jacket or pony hair sneakers.

What motivated you to start designing?
I was frustrated with the lack of garments available to men that did not have the detailing and fit that I knew men were seeking most.
Why did you choose Miami as your home base?
As  native Haitian living in Paris for 11 years I knew I had to move closer to family. Miami is a city that   continues to inspire me on a daily basis.
