Third-generation furrier Yves Salomon inherited a family business with roots in Siberia and the fur trade of early 1900s Saint Petersburg. By the 1960s, the Paris-based atelier was famed for its exquisite craftsmanship and trendsetting partnerships with couture houses including Revillon and Dior. An explosion of licensing partnerships in the 1980s brought it to the forefront of the fashion world, with designers from Azzedine Alaia and Jean Paul Gaultier to Prada and Yves Saint Laurent commissioning contracts. Today, the house works with over 100 types of fur and continues its technical innovations. Yves Salomon, its main men's line, presents classic, utilitarian down parkas and bomber jackets distinguished by fur linings and trim of the utmost luxury.
