Function and aesthetic must endure and be “long-lasting” in time, period.
At Biondo we do believe that clothes should not change every season or pursue Fast & Furious trends (in that case you’d better go buy other brand’s cool stuff, sincerely), instead they should be worn and used through the years almost like fine Tools, in good weather or under nasty conditions, preserving and maintaining their primary Features and value each time you put them on.
Our prices are not the cheapest on the market, but yet our garments are among the most valuable for their quality and manufacturing; the production mills (exclusively italian) that work for us are highly skilled, devoted to their job always aiming to get to our requested standard. Lastly, we do not ask them to rush, but to do just perfectly fine.
We also do not sell all over the place, but directly, face-to-face through our (stupendous) Workshop in Milano (Italy, again) or screen-to-screen if through our Website, so we keep the “chain” shorter with very reasonable mark-up; in some few cases we share the same Passions with cool special European Retailers with part of our products.
Last, but not least, there are not special sales at the end of the season (what are you talking about?) because major commitment is to respect our customer’s trust and wallet.
A little Story
In 2009, we designed and produced three pieces to join the (in)famous Endurance ‘Ride of Monferrato’ motorCycle rally (something like 1500 individual riders gathering on any sort of motorcycles and ready to jump up-and-down hills, going through thick and glorious mud, defying heavy rain and gaining a lot of fun…).
Then we developed a three layers Cordura® with a very special FIR Technology membrane dipping it in the official men’s color: a masculine, sober and elegant Deep Blue (pretty much far away from the rainbow-style motorcycle usual outFits…).
BIONDO ENDURANCE was then founded, defining and implementing the Apparel project, one for each different activity/section; partnership relations were started with leading Italian and foreign companies, both for materials and manufacturing.
WHAT WE DO
BIONDO ENDURANCE designs and produces apparel for sport, outdoor activities, light and heavy use, or just simple leisure. All products are either Technical or functional, to be simply and a casually worn, in both cases responding per quality and style to strict specifications.
BIONDO bases its production mainly in Italy, in order to have a constant, short based and direct quality control and to guarantee the best available results.
Fabrics and accessories are developed and collected from the best manufacturers we can find all over the world, from Italy to Scotland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Japan.
The ‘very rigid search’ brought us to the city new-frontier, Milano outskirts best known as the old (1) ‘Musocco’ neighbourHood. The old (2) Garage built during WW II belonged to the old (3) Hotel, with the old (4) cafe, still runned by the same old (5) family since… the best meals at the best price, by the way.
It is now our beloved WorkShop.
Here we design, develop and test new products, stock our garments, work on the WebSite, E-commerce and Socials, we make Photo-sessions and sometimes we have cool Buddies coming over for smooth parties and listening to Frank Sinatra (only when we behave…), things that makes us very happy.
We’re very proud of its walls and its big windows.
