Born in France in 1939, Orcival established its reputation as the official outfitter for the French Navy. Known for their 21 stripe Breton print, which was designed with the purpose of making sailors easier to spot if they happened to fall overboard.
The brand inherited its name and famous bee logo from a small village in Auvergne, which it is said the founder was particularly fond of, but due to the outbreak of war was forced to move his studio to Lyon.
The Breton stripe has since become a timeless piece, popularized and iconized by the likes of Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso. The brand has endured through its use of authentic and solid fabrics, which in turn remains loyal to the durability requirement of a product whose quality was once essential.
Orcival has become a talisman of French authenticity and supreme craftsmanship.
