The success story celio

  • 1970

    Cleo 3000 opens its doors

    On one of the most commercial streets in Paris, rue Saint-Lazare, Maurice Grosman and his wife choose to open a women's ready-to-wear boutique, CLEO 3000.

    Cleo becomes Celio


    They decide to change the target and to propose men's clothes. A change of sign is needed then: it will be celio, a sounding name both male and Italian.

    Their two sons, Marc and Laurent Grosman, joined shortly after their father in the adventure.

    Together, they opened in 1981 a second store in the same street, then quickly, 3 other Parisian shops.

    Feeling that the trend was towards a more casual and sportswear style, they then offer new and unseen products, up to 15 colors and present them in a simple and clear way, in the form of batteries at the front of the stores, allowing customers to freely touch the products.

    An expansion growing


    The success will lead to expanding their network and to cross the important milestone of the 100 stores.
    The expansion continues in the following years in France where, in addition to the city centers, Celio makes the choice to establish itself in shopping centers. A bet that will also prove to be a winner for the company.


    Begins then, the conquest of the international :

    By settling at first in the countries bordering on France (Belgium, Italy, Spain), Celio develops quickly and successfully its vision of the masculine style abroad.

    Beyond its European branches, the brand is continuing its development, also integrating its vast network of affiliated and franchised partners.
