The history of the brand starts in 1920s Germany, where Michael Irskens began a small line of men’s trousers. Slowly, women’s and children’s lines were added. The company changed dramatically when the founder passed away and his sons took over – driving a specialization in ladies trousers. This was so successful that all other lines were ceased in 1958 to pursue the niche in women’s collections. The specific ‘Michele’ brand was born in 1970 when Catherine Hepfer took over running the company. Catherine Hepfer had a vision of designing the perfect trousers and skirts for the stylish, demanding, worldly woman which continues to shape the company today.
