THE JOURNEY OF NEVER GIVING UP
THE TRUE BEAUTY BEHIND THE DESIGNER LABEL IS THAT IT HAS BEEN CREATED WITH A DISTINCTIVE MEANING AND MESSAGE WHICH IS CONVEYED THROUGH FASHION. THE IDEAS FROM THE TEAM FLOURISH INTO A CLEAR VISION. IT SHOWCASES THE JOURNEY OF NEVER GIVING UP, STANDING UP AFTER HAVING FALLEN COUNTLESS TIMES, AND EMBRACING FAILURE TO FULFILL DREAMS.
THE MEANING BEHIND THE DESIGNER LABEL STANDS FOR FAILING IN ORDER TO SUCCEED. BE CONSISTENT IN PURSUING YOUR GOALS TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS. IT IS CREATED TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO SHOW THAT ONE NEEDS TO PERSEVERE AND ONLY FOCUS ON THAT INNER VOICE TO NOT LET OTHERS KEEP YOU FROM ACHIEVING WHAT YOU HAVE SET OUT TO ACHIEVE. FIND ENERGY IN PEOPLE NOT BELIEVING IN YOU. THAT ENERGY WILL FUEL THE INNER VOICE TO PROVE EVERYBODY WRONG. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU RECEIVE A REPRIMANDE, IT SHOWS YOU DARE TO DO WHAT THEY DON’T AND THAT YOU WILL MAKE IT REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYBODY SAID. YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE RISKS.

Meet the three founders: Wesley Vaes always had the desire to show others that he embraces his Reprimande. He established the name of Reprimande through his experiences and brought the team together. Armand Neeskens grew up in various parts of the world with many different cultures. This developed a broad view in terms of lifestyle and diverse fashion trends. These different aspects are embedded in the brand. Martijn Kroneman has a design background and is the creative mind behind Reprimande who is able to translate the ideas which have emerged onto garments.
Quality above quantity is the collective belief of the founders. The meaning behind the designer label name motivates the team to transfer the ideology to others through fashion. Embrace failure in order to fulfill your dreams and be open to receive your Reprimande.
