Tricot Chic was born in 1972 in Paderno d’Adda, Italy, as a manufacturer of ready-to-wear merchandise, specializing in knitwear.
Since then their savoir-faire manufacturing has evolved, yet they continue to use the same manual machines to create surprising combinations of fine yarns and other quality fabrics with bold prints and intricate details. Tricot Chic’s talent for creating three-dimensional effects with their materials illustrates their strong craftsmanship to produce a dynamic collection.
This family-operated brand values its traditions and is still designed and manufactured in Italy to this day. Upholding these standards allows them to preserve the brand’s identity throughout their strong customer base of sophisticated women in Northern Europe, the United States, Russia, Japan, and various other international markets.
An encounter between a businessman, David Jarmon and a young and lovely Canadian student, Tara, led to the 1986 birth of the Parisian women's ready-to-wear line Tara Jarmon. The design once helmed by Tara has since been entrusted to a great design team starting in 2018. They have seamlessly transitioned into the brand, all the while remaining dedicated to the style and aesthetic the Tara Jarmon customer knows so well.
The look is "chic" with a very feminine and modern twist. Tara Jarmon is a brand that loves playful colors and prints as well as architectural shapes where fantasy is a key word. Pattern makers, designers, and quality controllers work together carefully to ensure the attention to every detail. The exclusive prints are drawn and developed in-house and the pieces are produced with impeccable technique to allow the brand to flourish in markets around the world.
