AIGNER’s vision is directed to the future while proudly looking back on a rich history. Back in the 1930s, when the Hungarian-born Etienne Aigner celebrated his first success at the Haute Couture shows in Paris, no one could have guessed it would be his first step towards establishing one of the most famous luxury and lifestyle labels of today. That was the beginning of his success story: followed by the presentation of his own collection in New York in the 50s – which first carried the typical A logo shaped like a horseshoe – it brought him further to Munich. It was there, that Etienne Aigner met Heiner H. Rankl, a businessman with just as much unmistakable sense of the future, as well as an appreciation for tradition. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Munich was the place of birth for the cult label AIGNER in 1965.
What persisted throughout the time is the devotion to luxury the love for the product itself and of course the internationally infamous horseshoe logo. Until today the evolution of the brand is marked by flexibility and steady expansion of its DNA in combination with the fashion zeitgeist. AIGNER remains faithful to its values and principles by creating a timeless product, while nevertheless counting on innovation and setting trends as it did with its signature bag “Cybill”. It embodies the clean, elegant design language of the brand like no other.
AIGNER is presented in 80 mono-brand shops worldwide. Etienne Aigner’s life’s work – since 2008 in the hands of management CEO Sibylle Schön – is now a global luxury label, represented in 19 countries.
