Brand profile AIGNER Eyewear
AIGNER – luxury label for the finest of demands
Unique craftsmanship, highest quality paired with tradition and perfection down to the last detail – these are the special characteristics of the products of the premium brand AIGNER. With its three product areas of leather, accessories and fashion, the German brand plays in the top league and is regularly present at the fashion fairs in Milan. The distinctive mark of the world-famous brand is the characteristic AIGNER “A”, a small horseshoe that identifies its owner as a connoisseur of style. Until the Munich-based company achieved this status as a manufacturer of exclusive leather goods such as handbags, belts, luggage and accessories for men and women, founder Etienne Aigner had to overcome a few hurdles. At first, he exclusively designed a few bag collections for several Parisian haute couture houses. Among others, the designer created first pieces for Christian Dior and Hermès. Finally, in 1950 and 1965, he founded his own company in New York and Munich. At the same time, Heiner Rankl joined in as a businessman and the brand positioned itself on the market as a firm supplier of luxury articles. At present, the AIGNER label still stands for sovereignty, security and confidence as well as a consistently timeless and always valid style. Thus, the unmistakable accessories inspire above all modern people who live innovation and appreciate tradition.
