Busnel was registered by Monsieur and Madame Busnel in 1920. They built their own factory in Dinan by the French west coast. They created a lifestyle brand in the highest quality wool. The Fisherman’s sweater soon become a trademark for the brand. Busnel supplied the French army with knitted products during the second world war.
During the 1970’s the knitted Busnel jacket with the golden anchor buttons became a symbol of the breakthrough for the chic modern woman. Scandinavia has always been the leading market. In 2009 the brand was bought by Louise Falkenberg. Ms. Falkenberg set out to carefully rejuvenate the brand. The respected designer Marina Keriklidou joined the company focusing on women’s collections. Busnel now celebrates the meeting of classic chic with the fashionable woman of today.
