OUR STORYConnaisseur Paris was born out of necessity in a time when luxury meant quality and quality meant luxury. The lifestyle of the 1% could only be a dream and not a reality.Alain Chaps and Julius Ade, French Cameroonian fashion designers, set out to disrupt the men’s suit couture world—22 years later, what was a dream is now a lifestyle of choice. The goal of the brand is to become the leading high-end couture brand providing luxury anyone could afford. The men’s fashion house is spreading its tentacles far and near through the work of the two visionary co-founders: Alain and Julius with Connaisseur Paris stores in Paris, France; and in the United States: Houston, Atlanta, Silver Spring, Upper Marlboro and with time, many more stores.
We aim to become the leading high-end couture brand providing luxury anyone could afford.
While it is a fact that we do not compromise on quality-not in our fabric choices, designs nor in the make of our high-end couture, we want anyone, who desires to wear exclusive, luxury, to afford them. The Connaisseur Paris brand thus seeks to make exclusive, high-end couture with the sole purpose to make them affordable to anyone who desires to wear them. The goal is to break the notion that only the affluent can afford luxury.
