A meeting in 1991
For the anecdote, it was imagined during an unexpected meeting between Pierre Lafaurie, the brand's founder, and a painter in our very first boutique in the rue de Birague, near the Place des Vosges in Paris.
When he entered the store, he wore an authentic and atypical three-pocket jacket completely stained with paint.
Pierre loved it and immediately imagined what the painter's jacket has become: an elegant, colorful, and timeless jacket, which has become our signature over the years.
Since 1991, we have been making it every year in many different materials and colors.
What makes it unique? It is dyed in a piece according to a vegetable process that we have specially developed.
For each new color, we develop an exclusive dyeing bath and numerous samples to obtain the shade as we imagined it.
We love strong, greyed, and slightly patinated colors.
an exceptional quality-price ratio
Our secret? For more than 30 years, we have built know-how and ultra-privileged relationships with our workshops that allow us to benefit from attractive prices and, thus, to make you benefit from them!
Our promotions are rare, and our markdowns are well thought out, so we can offer you the most affordable price year-round.
Finally, we are a family-owned and independent company that is faithful to its values: everything is done at Lafaurie to guarantee this quality-price ratio, and this has been since 1991.
