Do you want especially high-quality handbags, belts or wallets made of first-class leather? Then there is no way around the Munich manufacturer Etienne Aigner. The individual items embody both the hair-sharp precision of German craftsmanship and the fiery temperament of Italian traditions. Although this is more of a small company, Aigner's fine workmanship and strong colours are particularly impressive. Accordingly, Aigner today is one of the top manufacturers in the field of leather goods.
The Hungarian bookbinder Etienne Aigner found early on a great interest in the design and processing of leather goods. Accordingly he designed various bag collections for many of the haute couture houses. Due to his growing popularity, it was only a matter of time before he even started designing for Christian Dior and Hermés. Finally, in 1950, he founded his own boutique in New York City with "Etienne Aigner, Inc. His monogram also found its origin here: the horseshoe designed from his initials. A few years later Aigner finally opened his first showroom in Manhattan. From the very beginning he saw the upper class as his direct customers. In 1965, Etienne Aigner AG was founded in Munich, which supplies the American market as well as the world with designer pieces under the Aigner name.
If you look at individual products from Aigner, one element in particular will always stand out: the incredibly strong colours that have always been used in the individual textiles and leather goods. Not only the Italian touch can be derived from them, but also the elaborate handcraft to create this result. This is the origin of the iconic shade of "antique red", which is still one of Aigner's best-known trademarks today. The design and the associated colour is a direct homage to the Tuscan red wine Chianti Classico. Not only does the first impression appear particularly noble, but also knows how to convince through first-class workmanship.
At the turn of the millennium there were several hundred Aigner branches worldwide. But with the growing success, other target groups were to be won over as well. So the Munich-based manufacturer decided to design products for the middle class as well, which was against Etienne Aigner's original intention. However, as the popularity was steadily increasing, this was the next logical step. With few exceptions, however, the individual garments are still produced in Italy in order to maintain the accustomed quality. A further step towards a larger audience came in 2014 in the form of children's fashion and shoes. It is correspondingly important for Aigner to keep up with the times without undermining the spirit of Etienne Aigner. That is a major part of the success.
