Patagonia, the legendary Californian brand, was created to our great delight by Yvon Chouinard, an American mountaineer of French-Canadian origin, in 1972. From an early age, he set out to make his own equipment to compensate for climbers' lack of gear. A true autodidact, he built himself a small workshop behind his parents' home, which soon became a successful business. Initially specializing in climbing gear, he later turned to sportswear. Inspired by the polar fleece used by North Atlantic fishermen, in 1980 he decided to create a winter-resistant mountain fabric that would retain heat without absorbing moisture, keeping you warm and, above all, dry in freezing temperatures. This fabric increases breathability by absorbing water, and is recommended for wearing against the skin as an intermediate garment under a sports jacket, for example. This gave rise to the concept of layering. With the development of polypropylene, a fully recyclable textile, Patagonia established itself as one of the first companies committed to sustainable development. Now world-renowned, Patagonia was the first to master the technique of thermal underwear. Today, the brand's environmental activism and events are widely recognized.
Patagonia is considered the must-have sportswear brand for men. Indeed, its creator chose the brand's name in honor of his favorite South American mountain ranges. What's more, these garments are ideal for sport, with their technical fabrics to combat the cold, water-repellent fabrics to make our jackets and down jackets waterproof, and breathable fabrics to wick away perspiration. We also find the founder's first inspiration, which is sport, in the comfortable side of each garment, allowing freedom of movement in all circumstances. Yvon Chouinard's primary inspirations are climbing, sport, nature and adventure, but he also holds other values dear, such as quality and integrity. Indeed, they regularly examine their practices to learn from their mistakes and keep their commitments to consumers. Environmental commitment is also a fundamental value at Patagonia. Non-conformism is part of the sports brand's DNA, as they want to do things their own way without direction. A final important value at Patagonia is innovation: they are constantly on the lookout for new textile innovations and new ways of doing things.
Patagonia's flagship product is the timeless fleece. Available in a wide range of colors and cuts, it has invaded many men's and women's wardrobes for a casual style. Originally created for sportsmen and women practicing mountain sports or surfing, Patagonia garments have been democratized until they have become timeless items to be worn on all occasions. In fact, in the early 2000s, the gopcore trend, combining style and hiking clothing, became increasingly popular. This trend, which is totally in tune with current societal concerns, has come back to the fore. Indeed, in the face of the climate emergency and in the wake of Covid, many people are keen to consume better by reconnecting with nature while remaining comfortable in all circumstances. Fashion is more than ever linked to escapism and a closer relationship with nature, and brands like Patagonia, with their commitment to the environment, have capitalized on this trend. So we dare to leave home looking like mountaineers, the trick being to know how to combine the right pieces. Put on your pretty Patagonia fleece with zipped pocket, with raw Levi's jeans and Salomon sneakers. A perfect outfit for a winter's day. For summer, pair your Patagonia t-shirt with Teva sandals and linen or denim shorts. You'll find all the must-have items from the current and previous seasons on the exception website.
