Jean Patou, who started his clothing business in Paris in 1912, was one of the most famous and successful designers of his time. Aside from creating the tennis dress and knit swimwear, he also, in the 1920s, invented the concept of the designer tie. Patou lived large and partied hard, and he died in 1936 at the age of 49. Since then, several fashion icons, including Marc Bohan, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Lacroix, designed for the Patou label, until it went out of business in 1987 (the popular Joy perfume – “one of the greatest and most beloved fragrances in history” ~Vogue – is still made). “Purity of line…was the hallmark of Patou’s style,” says The Fashion Book. www.jeanpatou.com
