Anthony Delon was born in Los Angeles in 1964, the son of Alain and Nathalie Delon. By 19 Anthony was considered the youngest CEO in France, and success with his leather brand lasted until 1986 when he had a disagreement with his associates and moved on. Shortly after this, Anthony flew to New York after being given the role of Santiago Nasar in Francesco Rosi’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold. The film opened Cannes Film Festival and saw great success across Europe and America. Anthony went on to act in more than forty films and TV shows, and produced four of his very own theatre pieces. But in October 2016, he decided to reboot and relaunch his first passion: the leather label. The brand debuted under the title Anthony Delon 1985 at Montaigne Market during Paris Fashion Week.
I faced a lot of obstacles when it came to creating my leather pieces. Finding a good factory, organizing everything with the right people whilst trying to have control over quality at the end of the process all presented challenges. The main obstacle was to maintain my goal: to have the best handmade pieces, yet to retain an affordable price. To me, it’s important to give access to premium quality. It would be much
easier, production-wise, to make jackets with an average €2500 price rather than €1000, but I want to stay in touch with people—in particular my fans, who followed my acting career for 30 years and who now want to get an Anthony Delon leather jacket.
Anthony Delon’s winter collection will be launched in July and September, and a menswear boutique is opening in France on the second floor of the Printemps Haussmann in January 2018 during Fashion Week. By the end of 2018 Anthony will have shops in Geneva, Italy, Belgium, Germany, and Asia, specifically South Korea.
