The design is a way of writing thoughts, a way to test the strength of an idea, and of course a means of research.
Pierre Hardy develops logical formulas, constructing plays on volume, working not on trends but on graphic images. His influences come from design, architecture, conceptual art – never fashion history.
The style was established from his very first collection in the summer of 1999 when Pierre Hardy’s approach was a radical one. Pierre Hardy creates footwear like miniature architecture with clean lines and sculptural volume that tend towards simplicity. The result is a strong style that’s equal parts graphic and sensual.
Today, Pierre Hardy owns three retail locations- tw0 in Paris and one in New York.
