The 8 Ball: Olivier Grasset of Dr. Collectors

May 22 2021

Dr. Collectors clothing embodies both a love of California where the brand is based and deep roots in their former home, France. Olivier and Beatrice Grasset honor their late son Teddy in each one of their garments. Teddy was instrumental in convincing his parents to open their California shop, The Trading Post Gallery. Boiled down, Dr. Collectors is a small family owned business creating and doing what they love all while honoring family.

Today we talk with Olivier Grasset and get to know the man behind the brand in this rapid fire style interview.
