Maison Degand, a distinguished Belgian luxury house marking 50 years, intertwines its legacy with The Bahamas’ 50th independence year, reflecting on global cultural influences and fashion inspirations.

Maison Degand proudly stands as a beacon of men’s fashion excellence in Belgium, renowned as a distinguished luxury house. Founded by Pierre Degand, the maison, bearing its founder’s name, is gearing up to celebrate its illustrious 50-year anniversary. During a recent encounter, I had the pleasure of meeting Pierre and Mrs. Michèle Degand, embodying the essence of Maison Degand’s heritage.

As The Bahamas concludes its 50th year of independence celebrations, Maison Degand commemorates half a century of elegance and craftsmanship. Enduring through three generations, the fashion house continues to flourish, symbolising an unwavering commitment to sophistication and style.

In a conversation with Michèle, she fondly recalled her visit to Columbus Island in The Bahamas, specifically the island of San Salvador, reflecting on the deep ties between cultures and fashion inspirations drawn from global experiences.

The fusion of fashion, legacy, and diplomacy intertwined in Maison Degand’s narrative showcases the pivotal role of culture and travel in shaping their distinguished collections, contributing to global fashion sensibilities.
