Luxury to me has always been about the experience, profound human connection and how you make another feel special… never a label.
In an ideal world, we all wish we could instinctively elevate our look to a level of sophistication. It’s the details, fibers, drape of the material, proportions, understanding the human physique and how garments are constructed to respond that engineers the presence and style we all aspire. It’s an art to which we were never trained but collectively presumed it was easy to achieve.
This proficiency and expertise requires passion, integrity towards the profession and takes years of training to master. It enables an ability to mentor a specific style and elegance that is curated. That is the passion that is embodied in a DAVIGNON garment.
