King Louie is one of our favourite brands.
Their clothing is fun and versatile, the styles modern with vintage inspired fabrics or just plain beautiful vintage styling. King Louie has always been passionate about developing clothing that makes people happy, they design their own prints, with bright colours and garments with a good fit.
The company hails from Amsterdam and was founded in 1981 by two friends from High school.
They applied for a market license for the Noordermarkt, selling their best vintage finds. They opened their first shop, which sold Vintage clothing in Nieuw Leliestraat in the Jordaan district.
They grew over the years and moved to Haetenstraat, the 9 street district and have stayed there ever since, as the district is the hub of all things cool. The pair developed their own label from their love of vintage and the company grew and grew, popular in Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Denmark and later Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway and Austria. Their brand is available in the most beautiful shops across Europe!
King Louie aims to contribute to a better world, accepting responsibility for the people making their clothes, only working with manufacturers that guarantee adequate working conditions and they are a member of the Fair Wear Foundation. Also, 10% of their clothing comes with the Global Organic Textile Standard, this means that based on organic fibre and production compliance, the clothing is fully sustainable, good news for all!
Our new Spring drop comprises of fun, funky separates and a little vintage black number !
So sound the fanfare….King Louie is here!
