Even as a young child, Berny Martin knew there was something special about the process of helping someone define their personal image. Growing up under the care and encouragement of his grandmother, Elizabeth Catou Loiseau, he sewed his first pair of jeans at age eight. Today, Berny draws from those childhood experiences and continuous travel opportunities to create custom and stylish pieces that we proudly call Catou.

Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
During recent travels to Paris, France and Sonoma, California, I became inspired to follow the journey of a businessman between both areas. The cities, the atmosphere, the people –– I immersed myself in the culture and the fashion. I became fascinated by what I believed businessmen should wear throughout the journey, for work and play. This new line was born out of these adventures, adding a splash of color for good measure. In addition to the vibrant colors, you’ll find the designs, patterns, and textures represent the character and confidence of the men who inspired the collection.
