Presentation of the brand

 

The brand

For over 15 years, Collection 66 has proposed a multicultural fashion, tinged with retro shades, whose charm resonates with an audience in search of exceptional ready-to-wear.

 

The beginning

The Swiss fashion label Collection 66 was born in Lausanne in 2000, and is the creative expression of the Lausanne-based stylist Agnès Boudry.

The brand is available in the eponymous boutiques in Lausanne and Geneva but also in Paris, where its collections appear next to those of confirmed designers.

After its first success, the label quickly became one of the new up-and-coming Swiss brands.

Regular and reliable, Collection 66 meets the demands of professionals and, in 15 years of activity, it has never failed to deliver its two annual collections.

 

Development

Since 2002, Japanese buyers have placed their trust in the label, giving it new international references. Development continues: the brand is now available in different stores in Switzerland, in Vevey, Neuchâtel, in Lucerne, Nyon, Fribourg or Zurich. Abroad, Collection 66 is present not only in Japan and France but also in the United States.

 

In late 2007, Collection 66 inaugurated its shop in Lausanne. Pattern wallpaper and vintage chic atmosphere showcased the clothes and accessories of the brand. The models are prepared and collections are created in the back room of the store, adding to the authentic and personal touch of the brand.

 

Today

Initially, Agnès Boudry worked alone.

The team gradually expanded, and three employees plus an intern currently cooperate in smooth operation for the small business.

Since then the feminine ready-to-wear has been completed by a line of shirts and cardigans for man. As a link between the two collections, the unisex silk scarf has become an essential.

While the Lausanne workshop-boutique will soon celebrate its 10th anniversary, a second store has just opened in May 2015, in Geneva.

These events testify of the dynamic and collaborative spirit of "team Collection 66" as it continues to grow and glow !
