OUR STORY

A.Dupré
Fashion brand established in 2014. Its collection story often takes up images of European cinema and expresses them through its core…ancient Indian handiwork.
Under the concept of “Ancient is the Future,” as well as “long live craft,” the designer has been journeying to every region of India—home to ancient artisan traditions—to pursue his production. From dyeing to sewing, all fashion processes are carried out in India.

    "Pure Selfish"

    STIMULATION
    “The materials must be of the finest quality. The designs are simple but must possess a rarified element. The work process must be clean in respect of the natural environment and the producers. Purely by being selfish to these elements, we have evolved. Design and stimulation and ethics…all them we want to further pursue, purely selfishly. Pure Selfish —A.Dupré

    CLOTHES

    DESIGN
    Out of the beautiful rural landscape of India, over endless time, refined textiles have been spun and woven by hand. In the details, a line of subtle hand-stitching fans out. The grace of the artisans, who work closely alongside nature, is effortlessly beautiful. Exuberant and understated, A.Dupré features ambivalent clothing celebrating both. It is wear that naturally lifts the spirit, coolly and elegantly.

The techniques of textiles created by hand are nurtured by a region’s climate and culture, resulting in diverse sensibilities…all for our pleasure. Beautiful rural belts are home to textile regions—expansive plains with waterside birds. And the process of threading the looms takes place in these great outdoors, a workspace under the blue sky. The hands that move the loom, even their action of handling a pair of scissors is beautiful. Nature as it is. Fibers cultivated without pesticides. Textiles born from a gentle process that lends to thickness and a slight unevenness, as well as print gradations and hand stitching inconsistencies…For A.Dupré these elements are all enchanting, and valued over any prec
