Anthony Delon a staple of French celebrity gossip magazines, he is ready to write a new chapter with the relaunch of his namesake line of leather jackets.
In 1986, the magazine that you hold in your hands dares the unthinkable. For the first (and last) time, a man is shown on the cover. Shirtless. Admittedly, he holds in the palm of his hand a miniature woman in undress – Photoshop was obviously in its infancy – but all the same!
The man is 21 years old, his name is Anthony Delon and he is, according to many female witnesses, the fantasy machine of his generation. A year earlier, he made the cover of Paris Match, which proclaimed him “youngest CEO of France”. We did not check the accuracy of this information, probably out of laziness, but it is true that at the time he just launched a brand of ready-to-wear leather that hit the mark.
Creation Anthony Delon then has a hundred points of sale in France, we snatch his bad boy jackets, skate lovers dream of strutting in his leather tuxedo, and all this little world delights in his success story.
Three years later, Delon son throws in the towel. The father would have filed a lawsuit, refusing the exploitation of the initials A.D. And then, there is this dark affair, a partner who would have been shot.
