Plùs Que Ma Vìe is a high-range, miscellaneous Prêt-à-Porter constantly searching for new formal solutions and with a strong expressive personality, which was born between Milan and Venice in June 2013. Plùs Que Ma Vìe has the aim of creating a new collective imagination and a unique style, which summarizes, in an exclusive essence, characters of minimalism, concept design and clean lines.
Plùs Que Ma Vìe aspires to renovate the stereotype of classic menswear, by varying shapes and sizes and by looking for a new elegance without laying any expressive boundaries.
The entity of the Brand is enclosed in the idea of proposing a product that best represents progress and futurity, without neglecting the formalism and sartorial elegance of classic apparel.
Black: predominant element and color of each collection; all the other colors rotate around it, but the latter refuse to be excessively strong in order for a constant and clean aesthetic to be kept. A careful choice is made regarding the fabrics, which must be for the most part natural and free of synthetic components.
The purpose of Plùs Que Ma Vìe is to use formally classic textiles in a variety of contexts, to alter their functionality and to create a new trend dimension. In order to develop this great contrast between formal and experimental, a strong research is made in the world of technical textiles, which are used together with high-tailoring fabrics.
The target of the Brand are customers in the age range of 25 to 40, wealthy and belonging to the upper medium social class.
