AGANOVICH

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Bmw Golf Special -

Founded by Ser­bian de­signer Nana Aganovich and her part­ner, English de­signer Brooke Tay­lor, this Paris­based ex­per­i­men­tal lux­ury de­sign house first cat­a­pulted to fame in 2009 when it caught the at­ten­tion of the founder of Comme des Garçons, Rei Kawakubo. Over the years, the la­bel would gain a steady fol­low­ing for its cere­bral ap­proach to de­sign, which has ref­er­enced every­thing from Rus­sian artist Alexan­der Rod­chenko to early 20th cen­tury art move­ments such as Fu­tur­ism and Bauhaus. In 2012, it was re­vealed that the la­bel had been ac­quired by young Hong Kong en­trepreneur Jimmy KW Chan through his hold­ing com­pany, Semi­otics Inc. A match seem­ingly made in sar­to­rial heaven, Chan is also the founder of the in­de­pen­dent Parisian la­bel, Rue du Mail, which he es­tab­lished in 2006 with leg­endary French fash­ion de­signer Martine Sit­bon.
