Vince is a Southern California based label and was created in 2002 by designers Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice. This contemporary brand is known best for relaxed yet sophisticated staples - trendy and understated. Vince makes a deliberate effort to only use the finest quality fabrics, dyes, and other materials. The label takes pride in the high-quality items produced.
The name Vince was inspired from California designer, Cynthia Vincent, who in 2001 help the two designers start the label but left just a few months later. Vince began solely as a womenswear design label and in 2007 the first menswear line was created. Vince is still somewhat of a smaller label, however rapidly growing. In just 2008, the first Vince retail store was opened on Roberston Blvd in Los Angeles and in Spring of 2008 the online store was launched.
Today Vince can be found not only online and in their retailers but inside Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's, Barney's New York, and Bergdorf Goodman as well. Vince founder's want customers to be able to recognize and describe their brand as the fashion equivalent of comfort food - I can relate to that!!
