THE BRAND CINQUE corresponds to the essence of Italian lifestyle: inwardly passionate and emotional, outwardly always well-dressed and casual. With its casual fashion for women and men, CINQUE sees itself as the ambassador of these values.
THE CINQUE WOMAN | THE CINQUE MAN is between 25 and 49 (at least in spirit) and in many ways above average in terms of education and income. Both are self-actualized in regard to their work - and know how to express their ambitious but relaxed living attitude by their choice of clothing. In terms of fashion, they consciously value a certain moderation in style.
CINQUE STYLE stands for passion and nonchalance. The collection will never overdo its courage for fashion in spite of all passion for subtle details. Regardless of whether its women's or men's fashion, leisure or business outfits, aesthetics are persistently in control. CINQUE has a friendly and relaxed relationship with current trends, and offers good value with prices in the upper medium segment.
CINQUE COMMUNICATION highlights the casualness that characterizes the CINQUE Collection. The consumer learns the emotional values of the brand "passion and casualness," and can clearly identify with them.
CINQUE was born about 30 years ago in Cinque Terre, Italy. From then on, the Germans could pattern themselves after the Italians in terms of fashion. Since September 2002, the management of the newly formed CINQUE Moda GmbH has been in the hands of managing partner Karl Schleicher Jr., striving to continue the original tradition. In Germany, CINQUE serves more than 800 customers, mainly the high-end specialist trade, as well as around 300 foreign retailers. In addition to the 14-person design team, the company has approx. 100 employees working at its head office in Mönchengladbach, Germany and 120 employees in retail (stores and outlets).
