D’URBAN first made its debut in 1970 as a Japanese-incepted national brand. Over the years, it has gained recognition from many businesspeople through its contemporary styling and upscale quality backed by meticulous craftsmanship. Legendary French actor Alain Delon first helped garner attention for the brand when he became the spokesperson of D’URBAN in 1971. In 1996 a “super cool suit” is developed to combat Japan’s high-temperature, high-humidity climate, by collaboration with NIKKE woolen mills. Soft and lightweight without compromising on durability and shape, the collection was named “Modern Asian Apparel; Monsoon”. Not only was the outer shell ventilated but the inner lining as well, leading to the high ratings for the collection’s functionality. For over half a century, D’URBAN continues to challenge itself by promptly catering to this generation’s needs.
