About Us

Jean Patou founded his eponymous house in 1914. The First World War brought the house to an unexpected halt. When he returned from the front, he relaunched the brand. His first creations were inspired by his travels in the Balkans and the East. The young couturier wanted to free women from the restrictive clothing imposed on them up until then. He marketed dresses without corsets, shortened skirts, launched a sports line designed to be worn in town and a monogram with his initials. He stood out from his competitors, Jeanne Lanvin and Gabrielle Chanel, his great rival, by being all the more visionary. For example, he made tennis champion, Suzanne Lenglen, his muse, designing long dresses with low necklines on the back when the boyish style was in vogue. His eye paid off: between 1919 and 1924, the house’s revenue increased thirtyfold. Celebrities of the time, such as Louise Brooks, Josephine Baker and Mistinguett, were all seen wearing his dresses.

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).


Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.


The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
