A few days ago I had an interview with the owner of the french brand American Retro. I did it for a famous internet magazine called Trendspace.ru. Gregory Pariente turned out to be a very nice person. He said that American Retro is a family business, where many realatives take part. That they use retro shapes and add some modern details to their creations. He also said that their second line ZOEtee's cooperates with japanese factories which produce best fabrics (I absolutely agree!).
