From Wikipedia: Etienne Aigner was born in Hungary in 1904. First a bookbinder, he started creating high-end leather goods such as handbags and belts for boutiques in Paris. In 1950, after apprenticing with Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, he came to New York to expand his business. The brand's signature color is called "Antic Red" and the Aigner logo is the letter "A" shaped into a horseshoe. "AIGNER gave its products a rural, countryside feel. There was always a sense of the racecourse, a feeling of being by the fireside. A phenomenon that can still be felt today" (quote source: www.aignermunich.com). Mr. Aigner died in New York City in 2000 at the age of 96.
