FORA.tv Speaker - Christophe Loiron
Christophe Loiron opened the Mister Freedom retail space and design studio in 1990. Located on Beverly Boulevard in Hollywood, the store stocks vintage clothing, footwear and accessories for men and women from time periods dating back to the 1850's.
The store also offers rare textiles, vintage books and antique props collected from around the world, which cater to an eclectic audience of domestic and international designers, artists, retailers and other vintage-savvy consumers. An exclusive line of apparel created in partnership with Tokyo-based Toyo Enterprises' Sugar Cane & Co is also part of the merchandise mix.
Mr. Loiron merchandises the 3,200-square-foot ground floor retail space by style concepts including Great Depression-era work wear, outdoor canvas gear, naval and marine uniforms, Western wear, pop art-inspired pieces, tropical colonial
garments, and more. He also operates a private creative space on a 1,200-square-foot mezzanine level in the shop where he creates original designs for clothing and accessories. His latest original concept, MFSC Naval Clothing Tailor, is a 1930's tailor-made naval collection available at limited international retailers.
