This photo has already garnered more than a million likes on Instagram for the youngest star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians – and its various spinoffs. Rocking a new hair colour, Kylie Jenner is also sporting a Justine Clenquet creation.
It’s a long way from the jewellery designer’s studio in Roubaix to the neck of the Californian teen reality phenomenon – who has her own cosmetics line and dabbles in modelling. But Justine’s choker made the journey to Jenner…proving itself irresistible.
It’s the start of a new adventure. Fiona Fondadouze is a visionary in wanting to bring new, amazing functions to apparel – such as blending the domains of dance, art and technology in her creations. Her entire collection originates from a complete yet varied philosophy that results in pieces that are the definition of extraordinary. This is Akene.
Fondadouze describes her challenge as ‘to innovate and fascinate with every new collection.’ The winner of this year’s Paris Dauphine Award for her concept of design, she has created a label whose identity is characterised by its very graphic lines, various ties and each pattern and motif created exclusively by Fondadouze.
The sportswear and streetwear that inspire Akene the label reflect an art of living, a freedom and an energy in sync with the new generation. The desire to break established codes and shatter boundaries: this is what pushes the designer and is the modus operandi for Akene.

Recently, a jury of fashion industry professionals responsible for the selection process of the 2016 Maisons de Mode Grand Prize chose Inorganic Jewels to join Maisons de Mode this September by opening a boutique at 81 avenue Jean Lebas in Roubaix.
The force behind the jewellery brand is Pascal Perun. Trained as a set designer, he studied at the famed Paris 3 University in the theatre department, and at ESAT / Atelier Hourdé in the set design department. He marked his departure from studies with high profile gigs such as designing the window displays at Le Printemps’ landmark location on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris and working with om of the top agencies in his field in Paris. In 2009, he was a winner of the competition for innovation in exterior design with his project ‘À l’ombre d’une jeune fille en fleur’ (‘In the shadow of a young girl blossoming’) at the Jardins Jardin salon in the Tuileries.
Perun is part of a generation that has started his career after the first wave of digital culture, and has found a way to integrate new technology into his personal creative process. Through his experiences in various intersecting domains, he has acquired serious skills in 3D modeling, and is intrigued by various processes of computer-aided production, most notably the innovative possibilities of 3D printing. At the beginning of this year, he began to have the idea of creating his first collection using 3D printing. Public reaction to the results were positive, leading to him forming the Inorganic project.
A work plan was set up, starting with a physical model and sketches to lead to digital modelling. Perun thinks of the form of an object and approaches it as a sculptor. To illustrate his process, he uses the concepts of sculpting and digital craftsmanship. He works the proportions on an object with the precision of an industrial designer.
Inorganic Atelier is a collaborative and experimental platform whose inspirations and references are linked to the worlds of fashion, design, architecture and modern art. Inorganic Atelier is a search for a new aesthetic and for the trends of tomorrow.
Inorganic Jewels is dedicated to the idea of conceiving, producing and and distributing made-to-order modern, artistic jewellery. The brand is synonymous with original design, using cutting-edge industrial processes with experimental craftsmanship techniques to create extraordinary jewellery that is abstract and elegant.
The ‘Softline’ collection is a line that is the essence of minimalism and sophistication. This rendering of style, simple geometrics and rounded accents endow the collection with finesse and elegance, speaking to the brand’s artistic, couture aesthetic. The jewellery is produced using once-lost wax mold techniques by way of 3D printing technology. The finishings are in solid silver an brass plate.
The ‘Primitive’ collection is a line of jewellery sets that are graphic, ethnic and futuristic. The jewellery is directly printed on with nylon using 3D technology – then finished by hand. Printed nylon is a material with stunning properties, soft to the touch, light to wear, supple – but also indestructible.
Inorganic Jewels are created in studio-boutique in Roubaix, courtesy of a network of suppliers and collaborators meticulously chosen. Made in France.
