Fitness, Art, Architecture and Travel, Maxime Hernandez
Maxime Hernandez is a New York-based Italian made label founded in New York by Quentin Hernandez and Maxime Tiliouine, which offer a modern and refined collection of premium sportswear. The label is a fusion of innovative design, sports functionality, fashion elegance and spotless craftsmanship. Founded in 2015, this collaborative creative label was born from the love for fitness, art, architecture and travel.
What’s the inspiration behind and theme of your Spring Summer 2018 collection?
By drawing inspiration from uniforms and utility while playing with architectural references, the Spring 2018 collection offers a cerebral approach to design by deconstructing and reinventing menswear's relationship to the garment using handwoven fabrics and specially dyed materials. With their new collection, self-trained designers Maxime Tiliouine and Quentin Hernandez tell the story of a new effortless, cool and elevated menswear wardrobe.
How would you describe the typical Maxime Hernandez customer?
The Maxime Hernandez guy is a fashion conscious male in his mid-twenties to late 30’s, he’s cool and edgy but likes comfort and fit. He admires quality, but when it comes to his style he likes to mix his style with highs and lows.
Given that there are two of you behind this brand, how does this impact the design process?
Maxime Hernadez is a vision of both Quentin and Maxime, we started this brand together from the very beginning so its important for us to have elements in the collections that feel right for us both, Quentin does the design and creative aspect of the brand but we work collaboratively together to create the look of each collection.
What can we expect from Maxime Hernandez over the next few seasons?
The collection is growing each and every season, we will be adding some cool smaller ticket items in spring 2019, as well as denim jeans and jackets, so follow us on our Instagram page @maximehernandezintl to stay in tune as to what’s happening with us and the brand.
