Who we are?

GILDAS LEMÉ is a men's resort-wear brand founded by the French creative designer, GWEN. Drawing inspiration from the elegant lifestyle of the "old money" in the South of France and the unique tropical climate of South Asia, our brand redefines comfort and style with cutting-edge performance materials and designs tailored for the modern man.

The name "GILDAS LEMÉ" holds significant meaning rooted in French culture. "Gildas" is derived from the name of the village "St. Gildas de Rhuys" in Brittany, where our founder spent his childhood, evoking memories of happiness and eternal summer. Additionally, "LEMÉ" can be interpreted as "THE MEN" in French, with "LE" representing the masculine article and "MÉ" carrying a decisive accent synonymous with masculinity.
