THE LEGEND !
THE TRUE STORY OF 5 RUGBY PLAYERS WHO BROKE THE ESTABLISHED CODES OF AN AMATEUR SPORT AND CREATED AN UNPRECEDENTED AND UNIQUE ADVENTURE, IMBUED WITH BOLDNESS AND EXTRAVAGANZA.
The history began in 1987 when Franck Mesnel and Eric Blanc, two international rugby players playing for one of the most prestigious multisport clubs in the world - the Racing Club de France - decided to create a high-end clothing brand.
They applied their creative and quirky spirit to the conceptualization of a brand which inspiration and codes come from an extraordinary and authentic history.
Driven by a taste for paradox and attention to detail, Franck Mesnel and Eric Blanc created a true Eden Park style, the legitimate icon of which is the rugby jersey in all its declinations.
Rugby creates emotional connections and builds a sense of belonging to the global rugby family. We are passionate about our craft, the product we manufacture, and our customers who are always at the heart of our creations.
Rugby creates a spirit of unity, loyalty and camaraderie, lifelong bonds of friendship that transcend cultural, geographic, political, and religious differences.
For 30 years, Eden Park has put community involvement at the heart of all its actions.
Discipline is an integral part of the Game, on and off the field, and translates into the rules, the regulations, and the fundamental values of Rugby.
The rigor with which we manufacture our products ensures optimum quality through integrated control processes securing the good fit and robustness of our products.
Respect for teammates, opponents, field officials, and all those involved in rugby is a fundamental value.
We know how to offer our customers the attention they deserve, the service they expect and the listening they appreciate, so we make each of them a unique person.
The French Flair
The French Flair is this French creative know-how, this little "Je ne sais quoi" that makes each of the products that we create inspired by the French tradition, identity, and signature.
Identified by our symbolic logo, the pink bow tie, all our creations give a very particular importance to the craft of the materials and the quality of the details.
Today, we are offering you the best of this inspiration, a fashion at the crossroads of today’s trends and our distinct identity, a magical combination that allows us to stand undisputed in the premium clothing universe.
The French Flair is present not only in our products but also in our new store concept. Voluntarily modern and Parisian, this concept means a clearer and more minimalist presentation of our creations, with an emphasis put on some beautiful Haussmannian tributes such as the Hungarian point “herringbone” wood floor.
Why A pink bow tie?
"The idea about the bow tie was born some time before our national final, at a dinner party where the wine was good, and things got extremely strategic! We had to quickly find the best symbol of our mindset that would illustrate this exceptional day: we decided for the tuxedo and bow tie! We kept the bow tie as the symbol of that amazing day and decided for the pink dye, definitely more festive, and also a reference both to our mascot, the famous Pink Panther, and to our boxer shorts worn during games."
