THE NEW AMERICANA
Michel Men is an American Menswear brand dedicated to redefining American menswear by creating modern, minimalist, and elevated approaches to classic men's staples. The first collection of luxury knitwear serves as part of his modern uniform.
MICHEL MEN is the American Menswear brand by Whitney Michel. Michel is a Brooklyn born, first generation Haitian American designer. She created the brand while a senior at Parsons, School of Design. Her MM thesis landed her her first job at Vogue, leading her to decade of working in Mens fashion and as an agency Creative Director. Her strongest influences are her artist father, her love for classic American films and being raised as the only girl in a family with four brothers. In 2020, Michel Men became the recipient of the CFDA & Vogue funded Harlem Fashion Row grant.
Michel's experience as a first generation American, exposed her to the grit behind creating the American Dream. The discipline of her upbringing, paired with the pursuit of the American dream, birthed a drive that Michel believes is embedded in every ambitious individual. This drive is at the heart of the Michel Men brand. Michel remains inspired by this powerful figure ready to take on the world and build a legacy with this MM uniform.
