MILLE OTTANTA & HIGH BY CLAIRE CAMPBELL
Fashion agency of designer clothing at the high-end
1080. That’s the distance in kilometres between Mille Ottanta’s showroom in Amsterdam and in fashion centre Milan; the beating heart and soul of high-end fashion designers. Mille Ottanta is Italian for 1080 and works to keep the distance between Italian women’s fashion and the Dutch retail sector at a minimum.
Springboard for Mille Ottanta
From 2007, Ferry and Sylvia François focused within Podium 1080 BV on the brands PJS Parajumpers and HIGH by Claire Campbell. They wanted to specialise with these brands in a more specific and higher market segment.
The Mille Ottanta fashion agency was established In 2016 to house the ‘everyday couture’ brand HIGH in a separate independent organisation. Very dynamic market developments demand further specialisation from us and the delivery of retail customisation. An inspiring future with plenty of room for new ideas and concepts. Without ignoring current online opportunities, Mille Ottanta is convinced that independent retailers will continue to be the trendsetters at the highest level of fashion.
Wearable couture for your customers
Rich fabrics of undisputed and durable quality. Unique designs cast in a timeless style. A style with character. Everyday couture, suitable for any time of day. Mille Ottanta’s showroom exudes this atmosphere, and the standard of the collections is of course very high.
CREATING STYLE IS MORE THAN A RANGE OF CREATIVE STYLES
- Ferry François -
Fashion pioneer in the Dutch retail sector
Ferry François has been active as an entrepreneur in the fashion scene since 1994. With his companion at the time, Ruud Uijttewaal, he founded Twill Importers BV. Together they were responsible for the introduction of Italian fashion brands Giorgio Armani and Valentino to the Dutch market. They also successfully positioned brands like Guess, Calvin Klein, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Trussardi Jeans in the Netherlands.
Nowadays, Ferry is focused on HIGH by Claire Campbell. A brand with a very extensive collection that offers diverse possibilities for stores and consumers with a distinctive taste. This aspect remains challenging and allows a lot of room for different approaches within the brand concept. With this, Mille Ottanta creates a different form of customisation in the fashion industry.
