Company description

Manon Planche is a colourful label sporting unapologetic bold printed pieces that are both comfortable and unconventional.
It is inspired by and created for people who are not afraid to stand out.
From custom motorcycles to drag racing cars and vintage jet skis, Manon Planche is driven by the craziest activities, which are usually conducted by equally crazy people who dare to try anything.
We are all about positivity - in body and mind, and believe that fashion can go a long way in spreading good vibes if it’s done right and ethically. Some of our garments are made by hand to order as we believe slow fashion allows more creativity. We also take custom orders and do all sorts of collaborations with other designers and artists because diversity is COOL and we LOVE meeting new and inspiring people.
