Description

Brano is without a doubt the best Parisian tailoring house right now​​,​ only known for the discerning fews. Brano is the creation of two incredible talents: Brahim Bouloujour (a Master Tailor for more than 35 years and Meilleur Ouvrier de France since 2008) and Norbert Naitmazi (managing seller for Francesco Smalto Couture​​,​ their bespoke division). The name Brano is the contraction of their two first names (BRAhim and NOrbert). Brahim Bouloujour is the last traditional Parisian tailor. Born in Casablanca​​,​ he began working at 11 years old with the locals tailors. In the 1970's​​,​ Morocco was the center of many styles of tailoring​​,​ thanks to Italian​​,​ Spanish​​,​ and French expatriates. Trained by the official supplier of the Royal House​​,​ Luigi​​,​ he discovered the Parisian style of the court and of course then-King Hassan II. At age 21​​,​ he was already chief-manager of the atelier. However​​,​ he wanted to do more and by 1987​​,​ following the example of Francesco Smalto​​,​ he decided to go to Paris to learn the real Parisian style from the great houses: Camps de Luca​​,​ Claude Rousseau​​,​ and Cifonelli. He met the Master Tailor Guilson (who worked for Camps de Luca and Smalto) who took him under his wing. After seven years​​,​ he mastered the Parisian style. In 1994​​,​ he went to Italy and worked for Tommy & Giulio Caraceni in Rome to see what the Italian masters were capable of. While the Italians were not as precise in the details and finishing of the suit​​,​ their sense of proportions​​,​ lightness and flair are unparalleled​​,​ and Brahim Bouloujour incorporated those ideas in his creations. By 2001​​,​ the great Claude Rousseau (probably the best Parisian cutter of all-time with Joseph Camps and Francesco Smalto) sold his atelier to Cifonelli and he decided to join them. During this time​​,​ he worked with the semi-retired Rousseau who shaped his own style and cut​​,​ as well as the intricate details and finishing of a real Parisian jacket. In 2007​​,​ it was time for him to make his own path. Partnering with Norbert Naitmazi​​,​ who personally worked with Francesco Smalto for many years and completely understood his aesthetic​​,​ they opened Brano. The atelier was first located 8 Avenue Percier in the 8th Arrondissement​​,​ but quickly changed to 6 Avenue Pasquier in the Madeleine district​​,​ before moving again to its current location​​,​ 32 Rue de Penthièvre​​,​ a few steps from the Bristol Palace. Under the advise of Guilson​​,​ Brahim Bouloujour passed the exam for Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2008​​,​ the hardest competition for artisans and craftsmen in France​​,​ held once every four years. He easily won the medal by crafting a stunning silk dinner jacket that took him more than 50 hours. Brahim Bouloujour continues to produce some of the most exquisite suits​​,​ jackets​​,​ coats and trousers in Paris​​,​ all by hand​​,​ in the purest tradition. His clients are prominent lawyers​​,​ diplomats​​,​ celebrities​​,​ and heads-of-state. I propose a typical example of his work: a pair of beige cotton-linen trousers. Made in the spring of 2009 for his partner Norbert Naitmazi​​,​ it was one of Bouloujour's first creation under the name Brano. It is the perfect trousers for the spring and summer months​​,​ with a classic navy blazer and your best pair of loafers. As always with Brano​​,​​​​​​​​​​ it is fully handmade​​​​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​​​​ from the sewing to the buttonholes. They featured a rare "point baguette" (an handmade seam along the line of the trousers​​​​​,​​​​​ similar to what you could find on a tuxedo trousers​​​​​,​​​​​ but without the satin band). The conditions is like new. The trousers are best fitted for a size W38UK​​​/​​​48FR​​​,​​​ around 1m75.
