Proudly introducing DAKS London for Spring 2010 - Back again in Denmark after 20 years of absence

The history of DAKS London

Founded in 1894 by Simeon Simpson, renowned for its cut, styling, design and innovative frabric development, the DAKS brand of today holds both women, men, accessories and children´s collections as well as DAKS Golf, DAKS Dog and DAKS Home

The name DAKS

In 1933 Alec Simpson took over the business after his father´s death and decided to take the company into a new revolutionary direction by producing ready to wear collections. The trademark DAKS was also registered, which is thought to originate from a combination of the words “dad´s” and “slacks”

The DAKS House Check

In 1976 DAKS designed the DAKS House Check consciously choosing colours of camel and vicuna to represent luxurious fabrics and adding black as an elegant contrast. Today numerous of other checks are officially registered under the DAKS Simpson Group plc, adding a variety of visual expressions  to the brand.

DAKS World wide

DAKS´ coat of arms says “Aspice Semel”, a motto which roughly translates as “One look”; since one look tells you it´s DAKS - and with flagship stores all over the World, DAKS may not be wrong about that.
