Originally founded in France in the thirties, Danton supplied workwear to French industry, including the SNCF and the Paris Metro, throughout the 20th century. Although worldwide distribution is now handled from Japan (where they have something of an obsession with European utility clothing) by Boys Co. Ltd, Danton production is still in France but there’s now a Japanese design influence. Look out for the red diamond logo.
For Spring we loved the linen and cotton Oxford popovers; lightweight jackets in typewriter cloth (keep up, this is a fine cotton yarn densely woven, somewhat like a cotton poplin); indigo carpenter pants; cord shorts. And we loved new colours mustard, olive and putty.
SS19 collection is now available instore and online.
