"We don’t want our products to be seen as just commodities but as pieces that will stay with you for a long time, just as a good piece of vintage design." So says Lucca Lamoine, founder of French clothing label Verlan. The brand specialises in streetwear-inspired staples like raw denim jeans and soft cotton T-shirts and sweatshirts, but it is fuelled by influences beyond fashion – in particular, Lamoine's personal passion for mid-century design by the likes of modernist design pioneers Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret.
It is the latter designer whose iconic furniture designs are now available to purchase through Verlan. Scroll on to discover the authentic limited edition pieces, which are paired here with limited edition clothing items from the Verlan collection.
Pierre Jeanneret's Easy Chair, made in the 1950s, was designed to be used within various public buildings in the city of Chandigarh, India. Crafted from durable teak and cane, it's as sturdy as it is stylish.
The heavyweight cotton jersey sweatshirt is a reinterpretation of the classic American sports style. Verlan's signature logo is subtly embroidered on the back for a unique touch.
Simple yet beautiful, Jeanneret's authentic Sewing Stool Chair, made from solid rosewood, is the ultimate interior addition for any modernist design obsessive.
The M-51 Jacket Liner draws inspiration from the classic military parka liners that kept American soldiers protected from the elements during the Korean war. Made from waterproof, windproof and breathable Italian nylon, it epitomises Verlan's innovative approach to craftsmanship.
Take your home office to the next level with Jeanneret's meticulously made Pigeonhole Desk, made from sissoo, leather and aluminium, with a cleverly integrated bookcase.
Verlan's loden coat is designed to last a lifetime, crafted from a luxurious blend of virgin wool and eco-friendly cashmere. The orange grosgrain offers a welcome injection of personality.
A truly iconic piece of mid-century design, this teak and rattan chair, with its distinctive floating back, would work beautifully as a decorative object in its own right.
A classic grey hoodie is a must-have wardrobe staple that will serve its wearer well for years. This version from Verlan is made from 100% organic cotton for ultimate durability and comfort.
