LE MINOR WOOLEN COATS
In the 50's, Le Minor was one of the main manufacturers of Kabig, clothes for sailors. A few years later, inspired by sailors' coats, the brand diversified and created modern woolen coats. In the 1970s, Le Minor expanded its range and became a real trendy ready-to-wear brand. This piece dates from the beginning of this expansion and is full of history, especially through its buttons... ... Marie-Anne Le Minor meets Pierre Toulhoat, still a student at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Passionate about traditional Breton art and curious about techniques, he will become a renowned artist. He is the artist who collaborated with Le Minor for the longest time, and in all fields. His first collaboration dates from 1948 with embroidery. In 1953 he created his own jewelry workshop, and it was then that Anne-Marie Le Minor, who wanted to develop fashion clothing, asked him to make the buttons for her coats. This vintage coat produced in the 60s is a real archive with its patinated metal buttons and is intact. Its still impeccable condition is a testament to the quality and durability of our products made in France, which have been made for almost 100 years in Brittany. Its straight and elegant cut is becoming trendy again today, this coat will find its place in your looks from the most simple to the most chic.
OUR SECOND HAND CONCEPT
In November 2020, we launched the Gwenner Glaz: Green Friday in Breton. The concept is simple: collect your old clothes, from all eras, and offer our customers vouchers in return. With all these returns, we were able to open a second hand fashion department, with carefully selected second hand clothes. Please note: all our second hand clothes are second hand clothes, usually already worn. They may therefore have traces of wear. Nevertheless, we have sorted them, selected them carefully, cleaned them and repaired them when necessary (if necessary, this is always specified). Non-repairable garments were recycled in the same way as all our production scraps. We have classified the second hand clothes in 3 categories: 1 - Very good condition: garment that has been worn very little, with no defects, and no wear and tear 2 - Good condition: garment worn and washed several times, with slight traces of wear that are mentioned in the description, but no defects or repairs 3 - Fair condition: garment worn and washed several times, which has one or more defects or repairs, which are mentioned in the description and photographed. Here, this is a garment in Very Good condition.
