Created in Paris in 2019, Mansour Martin takes its name from the two Belgian designers & funders: Mansour Badjoko and Martin Liesnard.
Their friendship started over 10 years ago and today they combine their respective experiences and complementary savoir-faire to create a designer brand offering a sustainable genderless menswear wardrobe for all identities, with no boundaries. Mansour Martin is built on the principles of respect, humility and multicultural explorations.
Passionate by architecture, pop culture, design and urban life evolution, they create a sophisticated and whimsical universe. Masculine clothes for a curious, epicurean and dreamer man, also designed to appeal to women. Animated by multidisciplinary arts, they invite and collaborate each season with different artists.
Alongside artistic collaborations, Mansour Martin is keen to build a strong community around them and support various projects: such as the project Where Love Is Illegal.
The creative duo shares a common passion and a commitment for a conscious, sustainable and respectful fashion. All clothes are exclusively produced in France, Belgium and Portugal and 75% are fully sustainable (organic cotton & wool, natural dye, recycled fabric and innovative waterless production processes). They are working towards being 100% in the upcoming collections. Discover their sustainable commitments here.
