Philippe Perissé loves women who are daring, bold, and full of character and natural charisma. Women one can meet one time but never forget, women with a Parisian allure, blending masculine chic and feminine charm, women who carry within themselves a uniqueness, a sophistication and a sense of mischief.
This is not surprising for someone who collects military uniforms, is obsessed with the art nouveau master Mucha, loves 1940s Hollywood films and illustrators, and who studied at Paris’ renowned Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture. Degree in hand, he paid his dues with stints at Jean-Louis Scherrer Haute Couture, followed by work at John Galliano. He then went on to sharpen his eye and skills by working with new designers such as Alain Gossuin and Delphine Murat.
After training in development and management of luxury brands at the illustrious Institut Français de la Mode, he was tapped to serve in managing the collections of Catherine André. Following that, he joined the luxury products division of L’Oréal, developing cosmetics collections for Lancôme and Armani. But design kept calling him back…
Guided by the goal to reveal the confidence, beauty and innate superb nature of woman, he began to conceive and create pieces for his private clientele. He was finally ready to take the plunge: he created his eponymous label. The cuts he constructed – structured shoulders and defined waistlines – have become a trademark of Philippe Perissé. But his imprint bears a claw – the claw of his mascot “Beau.”
A symbol of hedonism that is at once poetic and naughty, Beau also acts as a guardian angel for his clients.
Beau is his label’s emblem, an astonishing chimera that’s a cross between a bull terrier and an eagle. It is something of an alter ego for designer Philippe Perissé – as well as being the label’s first ambassador.
Beau takes as his motto Age Quod Agis – whatever you do, do it well…especially in fun.
Philippe Perissé takes this credo to heart. A true tailor, he brings to life impeccable collections for day and night, as well as unique pieces made on demand.
