In 1965, while dining at Café de la Paix in Paris, Léon Claude Duhamel had the idea to create clothing out of nylon to protect from the rain. From this idea, a colored, waterproof and unisexe model was born and baptized the K-Way. Why K-Way? To make people believe the product was American of course! The K-Way concept, total liberty even in the rain, coupled with the flashy colors and a foldable pouch made the product a hit for generations to come. Today, K-Way has made a retro comeback into the wardrobes of adults and children with new styles, new materials and new prints. The tricolor brand stays true to their motto: fun first!
