POAN is a fashion brand but also a concept, a suggestion for a certain way of living.
It stands for Peoples Of All Nations, after J. A. Hammerton’s book, which inspired the designer and founder of the brand Georg Weissacher to bring it to life in his own label, after
accomplishing a nine-year tenure as Vice Head of Menswear at Vivienne Westwood.
“This book and living in London made me realise that we can achieve harmony through diversity”, he said, “ that we can deal with the challenges of a modern, connected world successfully only when we cherish and nourish our respective differences.”
POAN seeks to distinguish itself with a product created by a rigorous design process with
strong emphasis on keeping traditional artisanship alive.
The design studio in London is tightly linked with its Italian production partners to constantly push ahead with new fabric developments as much as the best know how of garment-making in general.
Signature pieces combine knit and woven elements of the same yarn, a novel technique that ensures a supreme fit, are a proud pillar of POAN´s ability to innovate.
Rather than following the traditional seasonal fashion cycle, POAN develops and drops 6
Limited Edition "Love Collections" a year alongside a seasonless "Classics Collection" that reflects its stream of creativity but also honours the behaviour and needs of a modern global consumer.
Every two months a limited range of new styles is introduced, as survey of a specific topic.
POAN looks at the versatility of love – that quintessential human condition – in various facets, which range from family to religion, to sexual attraction.
Film is an indispensable element of the POAN world. “It is the best medium of storytelling
we have created,” Georg Weissacher said and he is using it in every campaign to define and
update the brand identity.
POAN is part of the Positive Luxury collective, promoting sustainability within the fashion industry in particular.
We refrain from using fur, or leather in our collections, and are determined to join the movement to replace single
use plastic with biodegradable or reusable packaging in order to save our oceans and its
inhabitants from irretrievable pollution.
