NEW STRETCH GOAL

All right! I just spoke with the factory here in France and let me just tell you they are thrilled and very pleased. We are so impressed by your enthusiasm and I'm deeply touched. Thanks to you all I'm creating this company after Kickstarter and making my dream come true! I cannot wait to send you the clothes and know that in India! USA! Iceland! France! Great-Brittain! You will be wearing the first HADES super strong clothes. Oh God I'm so excited.

To add a little spice to the stretch goal I need your help to get the word out. If I reach the 10.000 € goal I will be able to offer the jacket and trousers in BLACK color as a suit.

So here it is: if I reach ten thousand euro, this will be available to all :

HADES is a new Parisian brand you will help create with Johann Meunier that will specialize in making stylish clothing both super resistant and durable. 

HADES est une nouvelle marque parisienne de vêtements durables et urbains, de mi-saison, résistants et élégants, portée par son créateur, Johann Meunier.

The Hades team is all about designing stylish garments with an industrial textile. We reconcile strength and durability with style and elegance while maintaining affordable prices.

In other words, let's make style and durability accessible to all people!

Avec Hades, Johann Meunier relève un défi : celui de dessiner un vêtement élégant dans un textile industriel d’habitude grossièrement coupé. Hades réconcilie ainsi solidité et durabilité avec style et élégance, tout en maintenant des prix abordables accessibles à tous.

For Kickstarter I propose two prototypes over thirty days : a navy blue jacket for men and beige unisex pants. Achieving the quantitative target set for this campaign will fund the creation of the company and development of a clothing collection which will include accessories and shoes for men and women of all ages, set for early 2016.

Je propose pour ce lancement en pré-achat pendant trente jours, deux pièces : une veste bleu marine pour homme et un pantalon beige unisexe. L’atteinte de l’objectif quantitatif défini pour cette campagne permettra de financer le développement de plusieurs autres prototypes constituant une mini collection pour homme et femme qui comportera également à terme des accessoires et des chaussures pour début 2016.

It starts from the observation that at present times, searching for a more reasonable and sustainable consumption, we need resistant clothing of quality, that ages well and lasts longer, while remaining affordable. 

We will give the consumer the assurance its clothes last longer, giving them a choice to slow down on the constant necessity to renew the wardrobe after a few turns in the washing machine. 

The fact you can wash all Hades clothes at any temperature you want is constitutive of the brand’s vision, offering more suitable solutions to urban everyday life.

Elle part du constat simple qu’à l’heure de la recherche d’une consommation raisonnable et durable, nous avons plus que jamais besoin de vêtements résistants et de qualité, qui vieillissent bien, résistent longtemps, tout en restant à des prix abordables. 

Hades veut donner au consommateur l’assurance que ses vêtements pourront être portés longtemps, lui permettant ainsi d’arrêter de renouveler sans cesse sa garde-robe.

The Hades prototypes offered here are the result of the collaboration from Johann Meunier, his team of pattern makers who have graduated from the renowned chambre syndicale de la couture and worked in respected Parisian fashion houses such as CHLOE or BALENCIAGA, and the French industries of security and safety workwear.

The fabrics we use are very strong but we thought it not necessary to have them fire proof nor bullet proof. Hades creates elegant and classic tough clothes; they are modern and simple, adapted to most situations in urban life. 

Les pièces Hades sont le fruit de la collaboration de la marque avec des modélistes issus de la chambre syndicale de la haute couture et des industries françaises spécialisées dans le vestimentaire de sécurité et de travail. Elles bénéficient ainsi d’une haute technologie et d’une recherche de pointe leur garantissant confort et solidité à toute épreuve, au même titre que les équipements de protection individuels produits par ces industries.

NB: Les matières utilisées ne résistent pas au feu et n'arrêtent pas les balles d'armes a feu.

The clothes are based on a multi-influenced style derived from Neapolitan bespoke suits, Los Angeles gangs, the Yakuza and a sportswear wardrobe. 

Hades produit des vêtements élégants et classiques, modernes et simples, adaptés à toutes les situations de la vie en ville. Son style s’inspire d’une mode multi-influencée, dérivée de costumes napolitains sur mesure, des gangs de Los Angeles, des Yakuzas et d’un vestiaire sportswear.

Hades clothes benefit from the advanced research carried out in the past 50 years for the safety and workwear industry that has developed impressive new technologies in creating fabrics to ensure comfort and enormous strain.

Risks and challenges

The challenge will be to create more prototypes, develop and evaluate their cost of fabrication in order to have a small collection ready for early 2016.
Also I will be looking for a specialized manufacturer for the shoes and accessories I have on the drawing table. All in the name of strength and durability. The Kickstarter campaign will help me produce the first batch of clothes I am proposing to you on special offer and ship them to you all. This will allow me to create the company and look for partners to help me develop the brand for future markets. This is it!
