The Legend !

The true story of five French Rugby players who dared to break the established codes of an amateur sport, sparking a unique unprecedented adventure full of craziness and daring.

The brand’s history kicked off in 1987 when Franck Mesnel and Eric Blanc, two Rugby internationals playing for one of the world’s most prestigious multi-sports clubs – the Racing Club de France – decided to establish a high-end clothes brand.

 

Combining their creative and offbeat spirits, they came up with a brand whose codes and inspiration find their origin in a story as extraordinary as it is authentic.

 

Driven by their love of paradox and attention to detail, Franck Mesnel and Eric Blanc created a genuine Eden Park style, the legitimate icon of which is the Rugby jersey in all its shapes and forms.

The French Flair

French Flair : it’s that creative French know-how,

the little “je ne sais quoi” which means that every garment we create is

inspired by French tradition,

signed and identifiable. 

Easily recognizable thanks to their symbolic logo,

the Pink Bow Tie, all our creations pay special attention to the quality of

fabrics and the many unique details.

Today, we bring you the fruit of this inspiration,

proposing a style which skillfully blends the spirit of the times with our

distinctive identity :

a magical combination which cements our place as the undisputed brand in

the high-end sector.

The French Flair is not only transposed in the products

but also in our new store concept.

Modern and Parisian, this concept is intended to be clearer

and more minimalist, accept the emphasis on references

all Haussmannian such as the chevron flooring

in Herringbone Style.

 

 

What’s with the Pink Bow Tie ? 

“The idea of the Pink Bow Tie was born in the 1987 season some time before we played in the final of the French Championship, during a dinner which as you can imagine was well lubricated and eminently strategic. We urgently needed to find something which symbolized our state of mind, something worthy of this historic day, a unique opportunity which could also be celebrated in our “Number One” attire, in other words a tuxedo.  We retained the original attributes of the bow tie, but it seemed more festive for us to die it pink, as a reference to our mascot, the famous Pink Panther, and of the pink underwear we had famously worn in some matches.”
