French Deal

THE POWER IS YOURS.

French Deal was born from the fusion of hip hop, fashion, and the celebration of Africa.

The brand now invites women into its men’s wardrobe with the launch of KODJIA berets.

Unisex pieces with a committed style, these accessories combine French know-how and African craftsmanship. Creative Director Steeven Kodjia signs this collection inspired by black culture and shares his vision in the new campaign: “THE POWER IS YOURS”.

“THE POWER IS YOURS” highlights the history of the Black Panther Party and the struggle of great African and Afro-descendant leaders. The Béret KODJIA represents this tribute. It gives power back to the people.

$25 of each sale is donated to the I AM FOUNDATION.

Steeven Kodjia

FOUNDER

At the heart of Maison French Deal is its founder, Steeven Kodjia, born in 1980 in the Parisian suburbs from Ivorian parents.

From a young age, he developed a passion for dance and hip-hop culture.

As an adult, he continued to draw strength and creativity from hip-hop, both major assets allowing him to continue on his course off the beaten track. Along the way he gained strength and learned the power of perseverance, values he still fervently holds today.

At the dawn of the 2000s, Steeven Kodjia became a professional dancer. At just 22 years old, he flew to the United States with the audacity that had come to characterize him. This journey opened the doors of fashion to him. It is the second great meeting of his life.

French Deal was born from this bridge between Paris and New York and this unconventional way of looking for fashion in the streets. As with dance, his first steps in fashion were in the streets of the city.

Step by step, hip-hop fashion slowly transformed in form and approach. With all of his savings, the entrepreneurial dancer embarked on the adventure of becoming a fashion designer, filled with a hint of madness and the desire to express his vision of clothing. This neophyte, by the force of his will, learned the different aspects of a profession for which nothing had predestined him. Ignoring obstacles, he turned his mistakes into strengths and learned with passion the intricacies of this demanding and codified world.
