Started in 1938 by Swiss Engineer Walter Hubacher in Brittany, France. Originally conceived as a lingerie and underwear brand, it grew to produce ready to wear garments, embracing the local history of coastal clothing and Walter's love of the sea; resulting in Armor Lux. At the present day it is helmed by two childhood friends of Walter's who continue to grow the brand, using its rich heritage of Breton tops and sweaters, still in the small region of Quimper where its genesis was realised. Armor Lux are regaled for their knitting techniques and quality of jersey.
