Founded in 2012, Coltesse explores premium materials through minimalistic designs and a unique approach to detail and finish. The materials are imported from Japan and Italy and they are subjected to meticulous sourcing before passing through Florent Coltesse’s hands, founder and designer, to be shaped and transformed in France. The Coltesse collection aims to rejuvenate the classics. It is all about “practical elegance”, a contrasting but harmonious mix of sophisticated and casual. This is the reason why the name of the brand, Coltesse, refers to Bernard-Marie Koltès. This modern french author used to interpret classics from his very personal point of view. Like him, Coltesse intend to spread its vision of style beyond France, specifically in Asia, where it’s discreet sophistication already shows growing success.
