Bringing back the bow tie: that’s the mission that has proudly been taken on by the team at Le Colonel Moutarde!
Rémi is obsessed with couture, a passion he inherited from his mother and grandmother, who was herself a professional seamstress. Frustrated at not being able to find a bow tie that appealed to his taste, he decided to make one for himself.
With needle and thread, he took up the challenge and, before he knew it, his apartment was filled with bow ties of all sorts that he had created. His partner Clémence suggested that they sell them on a blog dedicated to the bow tie. Convinced by her idea, they did. And the rest is history…
What was at first a one-off became a serious project when first-time buyers became veritable bow tie collectors. Inspired by the demand, Rémi and Clémence joined Maisons de Mode in 2014, setting up their first boutique-atelier in the heart of the project in Lille.
Their roaring success led to the opening of a new boutique in the heart of Paris in 2016.
That year also saw Le Colonel Moutarde crossing the English Channel to conquer Shoreditch, London’s mythic quarter, thanks to the arrival to the team of Valentin, Clémence’s younger brother.
Today, Le Colonel Moutarde is proud to offer customers the widest collection and selection of bow ties in France.
