Enfant Riches Déprimés, “depressed rich kids" in French, embodies the nuanced lifestyle that founder Henri Alexander Levy experienced growing up, surrounded by affluence. Born in Atlanta, GA, the designer established his brand in 2012 after leaving art school. With early co-signs from celebrities, the Parisian and LA based label is a purveyor of a punk and irony through fashion, as presented on conceptual graphics—mostly illustrated by Levy himself.
The high-end streetwear ERD offers is a complex crossover of the nihilistic spirit of punk and elitism, releasing every style in quantities of under 100. While earlier collections focused on basics, the label has grown to incorporate more cut-and-sew garments.
