In browsing through the inventory of armies around the world to stock their store, "Surplus Bensimon," the two brothers Bensimon discovered a huge stock of white trainers: they then had the brilliant idea to dye them in a multitude of colours. Bensimon arrived in France in the 1980s, and found phenomenal success when they launched their products. Rainbow colours, a super comfortable and custom trainer which has a timeless design and chameleon like quality that allows everyone to wear it with any style. Today, the Bensimon trainer has truly become a "must have" and their collections have expanded to clothing, bags and accessories in basic colours (black has no place), bright and fashion neutral but with a genuine spirit.

It was through numerous travels that Feiyue found it's inspiration. Since 2006, the French brand Feiyue has been developing and exploring new territories, while remaining in harmony with it's values. Without losing any of it's vintage and authentic charm, these little lightweight canvas shoes, originally from Shanghai, have gone through a series of transformations. Slowly but surely, it's style has evolved, combining different French and international influences. Today, the brand is ready to take over new markets. A lot of work was carried out on the quality standards: entirely updated shapes and carefully chosen materials have come together to obtain a shoe that combines style and durability. With these changes, the first collection was launched in France in February 2006. Since then, Feiyue has undergone many changes and has remained in constant evolution. The brand's Chinese name, Feiyue, signifies "Flying Forward" .... New arrivals come out every day in new colours and new materials. Passionate about urban art, music, and travelling, the team follows it's heart and expands the Feiyue collection intuitively, without using a trend book or studying the latest fashions. Memories, images, impressions, and ambiances taken from experience build and enrich the brand's style. This philosophy about the world and the desire to find new shapes inspires each of their new collections.
