Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo: Promenades in Paris

If there’s a final prompt to return back to a normal working and leisure existence in chic tailored style, this is it.

By the mid-1980s – a long roster of womenswear designers such has Christian Dior, Guy Laroche and Karl Lagerfield offered a men’s line. Admittedly, starting off with menswear, had fellow French resident Alexander Kraft started a label in the ‘80s, he would have been amongst the troupe of French-based menswear designers (including Cifonelli) who helped fortify Paris’s position as the undisputed centre of luxury menswear.

Back in the 1950s, Jean Cacharel had facilitated the French love of unisex dressing only for Jean Paul Gaultier to give it a radical spin in the height of Paris’s menswear prominence. Despite bringing a very personal vision to classic garments, Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo is an au courant amalgam of the aforementioned points and traits of French fashion history.
