Introducing the brand -
In 1986, Daniel Flachaire, his wife Véronique and Bernard Donati met Naori Nat, a young designer who lived in the United States. It was this meeting that would eventually lead to the foundation of the Banana Moon brand.
The brand developed a decidedly Californian tone, each collection reflected the values that are important to this region of the United States. Here sports and health take precedence over the hectic, workaholic lives people in the big cities lead.
Nat Naori integrates all forms of energy and vitality into his designs, especially through the use of colors. The choice of fabric he uses ensures comfort in any of his outfits. Comfortable clothing is essential to play a sport well. The combination of these factors resulted in a brand that reflects happiness and youth. It made customers yearn for warm, sunny beaches. This led to the distinct style of the Banana Moon brand. Banana Moon also proposes to develop a range of coordinating products to suit the swimwear. These include dresses, shirts, little tops, accessories etc.
