In 2002 they went on a backpacking trip around the world. Out on their own for the first time carrying everything they needed in their packs was a wonderful experience.
They loved the freedom, seeing new places, becoming citizens of the world. Soon into their journey we realised we needed clothes that would be comfortable, light and versatile - stuff that you could wear out on the trail or out on the town, unable to find any, they made up our minds to design them ourselves (as soon as they got back!).
Coming from a fashion design background Vigilante are not only focused on the fit, styling and detailing of every garment but also the technical needs and material technologies required to base the fundamentals of the range of our gear.
