Fabrice Couturier, known for his technical and creative excellence, has founded the unisex label Brownie and Blondie in 2011.
The brand is built upon having distinct gender independent collections, which offer high quality clothing as well as a unique brand universe. Brownie and Blondie is a unisex streetwear tailoring brand and is producing two lines: the main line and the socks collection. The socks collection is a collaboration with Manufacture Perrin, and is produced 100% in France. The Brownie and Blondie collection is entirely produced in Europe.
The label’s idea and origin was bringing together a sport oriented outside fabric, polyamide elastane micro perforated, breathable, crease proof, UV-resistant and washable with a grey cotton jersey lining. Since then Fabrice Couturier creates collections that follow the wearers body, regardless of gender or size in technically advanced fabrics such as double-face fabrics or a hot- melt laminating of a elegant wool fabric with washable leather.
Brownie and Blondie relies on the technical and creative excellence of Fabrice Couturier whilst pushing the limits of streetwear.
French couture precision tailoring combined with breakthrough fabrics and a streetwear/rock attitude creates something that Fabrice Couturier believe is very relevant to culture right now: a blend of high-fashion and high-function. The label is building a legacy of sportswear luxury and pushing forward with the advent of new breakthrough fabrics with high-end European suppliers; constantly searching for innovating and creating new fabrics and styles.
After graduation from the Chambre Syndicale’s fashion school in Paris in 1993, Fabrice Couturier took his first step into Haute Couture at Christian Dior.
The French designer has since left his mark in the Parisian world of Haute Couture, gaining more than 20 years of experience and making a name for himself for his technical and creative excellence.
When visiting the Bread & Butter tradeshow in 2011, Couturier instantly fell in love with Berlin’s urban vibe. He decided then and there to relocate and start his own unisex label.
With BROWNIE AND BLONDIE he combines his roots in Parisian Haute Couture with an urban Berlin twist. Fabrice Couturier is 42 years old and resides in Berlin.
