On a sunny day at the beach in Cannes in 1965, Nicole Leveque and her husband Jean-Pierre, recently returned from the Algerian War with a textile engineering diploma, decided to embark on an adventure and launched Nicole Olivier, making luxury swimwear.
Inspired by beaches all around the world, they start off working for leading brands – Nina Ricci, Pierre Cardin, among many others. Following Jean-Pierre’s death in 1993, their son Olivier returns from Japan to take charge of operations and preside over the internationalization of the Nicole Olivier brand.
Nicole Olivier has now established a presence in over 30 countries and seeks further global expansion. Half a century after founding the business, Nicole Leveque continues to serve as the creative inspiration behind the Nicole Olivier brand.Show less
