Grants Blogs #1- Pyrenex at Grants 1856 Coming Soon




When did you discover Pyrenex? The answer always, is whilst you least expect it! We've all got that mate who comes back from travelling decked out in a new brand; well Pyrenex was that mate. We went to buy a brand that was known to us and whilst visiting the showroom we saw Pyrenex, so we got this instead.

Like you we are are constantly on the look out for the next big thing but what we find is whist searching we hit upon some thing better; the unknown. As with everything we do as a business, we try to aspire to your needs and constantly try and refresh the store with new and exciting labels whilst remaining true to the classic - welcome to Grants 1856 Pyrenex.

Pyrenex are based in the heart of the Landes Region in France, its know for french goose and duck breeding. So you'll probably guess that these are quintessentially duck down. Pyrenex was in 1859 started by Abel Crabos, Pyrenex back then they were the main guys for the Raw Down material. Some time after he was joined by his son René Crabos. They forged values of commitment, confidence and solidarity, and in a spirit of generosity Marie Crabos, René's wife, created the first down jackets to protect prisoners from the cold during World War II. They still stand to the same principles to this day.



 Pyrenex Premium 

2009: Anchored in the 20th century, Pyrenex created a new Premium line that is synonymous with French excellence and placed talented young designer Alexandre Vauthier in charge of artistic direction. This can now been see around the capital city London and its a big hit in Liverpool. I think that when it finally drops on our doors you'll agree t

With their exceptional natural filling, these jackets are selected in the finest stores in Paris, Hong Kong, Beijing, New York, Saint Petersburg and Moscow. 
An essential challenge for Edouard Crabos: "After Alexis Mabille, who directed our Premium collection from 2009 to 2011, we recruited designer Alexandre Vauthier. These artistic directors lend added impetus to a Couture attitude, an inimitable "French touch", but they also introduce technical innovations. Premium is a luxury collection that has become a reference in the world of fashion. We have only 150 years behind us and many beautiful projects before us."

We've took some pictures form the Lookbook of Pyrenex, but here's what you can expect below of Autumn Winter 17




We're stoked at Grants 1856 to have Pyrenex with us
