ORGANIC, SUSTAINABLE AND CHIC
The label Beard & Fringe from Paris designs cool athleisurewear - with ecological production, social awareness and absolute transparency. So we can dress beautifully, comfortably and ethically every day!
The brothers and Gil and Sylvain Machac had a special relationship to clothing already before the founding of their label Beard & Fringe in 2014: Sylvain built up a close relationship to costumes and clothings during his career as a theatre actor. At Beard & Fringe he is responsible for the design, sourcing and selection of materials and colours. Gil takes care of the brand's image. At the beginning of his professional experience, he worked in the field of entrepreneurship in the creative industry. In the 2000s, he decided to become a film director specializing in the fashion industry and made films for many brands and magazines.

However, the inspiration for Beard & Fringe was actually given naturally to the brothers: The grandmother worked for Balmain, the grandfather was an early pioneer of organic farming. It’s no wonder that Gil and Sylvain Machac finally pursued a career in sustainable fashion.
For Sylvain and Gil, the ecological and social aspects are the core of the brand. Backtracking of materials, respecting the social conditions for the workers throughout the complete chain, the regional origin of all raw materials, the water consumption - everything is strictly controlled at Beard & Fringe. This also includes biodegradable packaging, waste prevention during the production and the compostability of clothing after use. Beard & Fringe stands for the values that make up true luxury: quality of the materials, durability of use and absolute transparency.
Female empowerment is another important part of the label's philosophie. "We only work with women," they state. Sewing, styling, printing, pattern making, production – everything is done by women's hand.
