Our history

Founded in Marseille in 2005, American Vintage is a timeless, colourful and creative French brand. It was after founder Mickael Azoulay's many trips to the USA that the brand's first iconic T-shirts burst into our lifestyles. American Vintage offers unique materials that invite you on a sensory journey. Subtle, authentic and predominantly natural to the touch available in a wide range of colours and prints. Pieces that you can mix and match ad infinitum, that will be with you every day, and that you'll never tire of. Neo basics mixed with signature pieces, companions for life. It's a brand that's free, sincere and instinctive, that has a presence in over 15 countries, and that allows every individual to feel good in their clothes, to dare to mix and match, and to freely express their personality.

The testimonial of the month

Amélia HASLETT - Sales Assistant in London

"I have been working for American Vintage for a total 8 months and during this time I have learnt so much! I joined the company hoping to gain increased knowledge of how the fashion industry operates from a retail perspective, but I have completely surpassed this, having also increased my knowledge of how an entire business operates from all angles including: head office roles, through to production, through to visual merchandising and sales. I love how collaborative and inclusive AMV’s operations process is, and this approach has enabled me to grow so much more than I initially envisioned. My role here has helped me to tailor my career progression aspirations to more specific roles within the fashion industry and I don’t feel like I would’ve gained this knowledge at such a young age without working for AMV. I have recently been moved across to the Hampstead store to pursue an opening for a store supervisor position and I feel hugely grateful for this opportunity and for the vast amount of support I have received from my colleagues within AMV because I realise that to be offered the opportunity to grow so quickly within a company is rare and thus proves how supportive American Vintage is in pushing you and helping you to grow."

The Camp

The AMV Camp is a team of enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary experts. Working as a cross-functional department, the CAMP supports its employees and helps them to develop their skills through training. It creates and maintains links between all AMV employees. As an opportunity generator, it works to promote cohesion by acting as a driving force and facilitator. With authenticity and presence, the CAMP brings to life our values of courage, passion and surpassing oneself at the heart of our brand.

Training

Every employee in the company has an onboarding programme, sometimes mixed between the head office and the sales outlets. This is followed by face-to-face and distance training. The camp team runs masterclasses every 2 weeks, and all employees have access to them, whatever their position. At American Vintage, there are no barriers between departments, and many employees have even been able to change jobs during their training.

At American Vintage, we grow. If you have the right spirit, energy and motivation, the company will be there to develop its employees.
