The brand VeryImportantPortuguese through Franck Coset has supported us from the beginning and is the official supplier of clothing for the crew. A brand made by Portuguese out of Portugal like our ancestors the Portuguese sailors. Very Important Portuguese was created and launched internationally in August 2004 by Designers descendant from Portuguese emigrants living in Paris and Switzerland. This project mission is to spread the Portuguese history and culture through fashion all around the world. A strong focus on the quality of Portuguese manufacturing brings originality and prestige to the brand. With the logo the Designers wanted to convey pride and nostalgia with the integration of Portuguese culture icons. The castle represents the Portuguese heritage and the catholic faith that has always followed the people. The coat of arms alludes to the old currency before the Euro. Carnations are the symbol of the revolution of 25th of April 1974 that ended the dictatorship in Portugal. The "tilde", of the Portuguese writing, is used to underline the name. It all started with simple sweaters emblazoned with the logo, but the collections quickly extended to other areas, so that today it covers the full range of clothing. From lingerie to shoes, today the brand VIPortuguese is already a strong reference abroad and had positioned itself in a market with strong competitiveness, being present in numerous multi-brand stores, along with other big names in international fashion.
