A life made to make dreams come true.
From a housing tower block in Villeneuve la Garenne, to rue Cambon in Paris via Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Marbella.
Lonesome suburban child, trying to escape from reality, I dream of wearing armour that would take punches for me.
One day, I meet Zor,
a young dragon from outer space, fleeing Ors, his planet, destroyed by its inhabitants.
Peace and harmony had long reigned over Ors.
The Orsians wore extraordinary armour, capable of revealing the nobility of the heart and the unsuspected powers in every being. The armor gradually disappeared.
Conscious of their vulnerability, Orsians were seduced by fear, which plunged them to their doom.
We are inseparable.
Years go by. Zor and I discover the City of Lights that shines beyond our tower block world. Paris dazzles us with its elegance and radiance. The air is like electricity, we can feel its energy in the way people walk, move and smile.
I am not from this world but now I dream of being a part of it.
I start with my appearance.
I wish for my outfit to underline the elegance of my heart. Paris inspires me. I transform my own clothes. I wear them and the way others see me changes. So does mine.
Years go by, I finish school. I want to help human bodies heal from their wounds using my hands and energy. As I cannot afford the osteopathic school fees, I offer the school director to work for him in exchange for free education. He accepts.
Day after day, I teach myself to feel and use the energy field that applies to all living beings and that some call the force.
A few years later, I use this force to treat pathologies that are said to be impossible to treat quickly : tendinitis and adhesive capsulitis.
Patients come from all over the world to see me. I stimulate vital energy to create movement where the body and emotions are frozen.
My osteopathic practice is located on rue Cambon. I am surrounded by people who express their vision through art.
One evening at an art opening, I meet a polo player. The next day he introduces me to this sport. I am immediately hooked.
I fly off to Argentina to train. I set up a second osteopathic practice from scratch in Hong Kong, I take up residence in Marbella, near the Sotogrande polo grounds. I spend my time travelling.
I have a vision : a one and only timeless outfit capable of following its owner on all terrains and in all situations.
Totally versatile, with limitless elegance and absolute comfort.
A project that combines my passions for clothing with my urge to direct my energy towards life on Earth.
My dream ecchoes in Zor’s heart.
“You know the Force. You experience it when you bring positive change into a wounded human body. You know that all living beings are connected. This bond, this strength, is the love that wove each Orsian armour. Love dissolves fear and makes beings invincible.
I lost my planet, now I finally understand why I came to Earth, to you. I am meant to help you bring Ors’ armour to mankind.”
I create Claude & Storz. Armour that does good around. Revealing the best in those who wear it, making them protectors of their kingdom : Earth.
Since the dawn of time, clothing has opened up perspectives much deeper than what it shows. What we wear reveals much more than an elegant silhouette.
The human race is beautiful when it makes decisions out of love. When it helps the weakest and cares for those in need, or protects the flora and fauna. For the common good, humans unite their powers as one. Humanity is then indestructible and capable of adapting to all situations. This is how Mankind will succeed in transforming, rethinking life on Earth to protect it.
Zor and I have always been one. The dragon is the part of us that knows no fear, for whom everything is possible.
Our story serves a fundamental and true mission.
CLAUDE & STORZ is pronounced :
Clawed and shtoarts
Claude & Storz armour is designed with attention to detail, out of love and to last.
Timeless and elegant in any situation and extreme conditions.
Strong, comfortable, and ready to follow you.
