A genuine French label for a genuine Chinese garment. In the 1930s, two importers, one French and one Chinese, set up trade together to bring into the French market, especially the colonial market, large quantities of the famous Bleu de Chine coat, traditionally worn by Chinese workers and peasants. This modest garment was known from the time of the Silk Road when trade with China was very intensive around the Mediterranean.
The fashion for Bleu de Chine took off among the Parisian elite, to the delight of the owner of l’Anti Cher who met the new demands while keeping his traditional customer base.
