Philippe Perissé loves women…daring, bold, full of character and natural charisma. Those who remain unforgettable after just one meeting. Women with a Parisian allure, a hint of mannish chic mixed with feminine charms…women who are unique, free-spirited, sophisticated and mischievous in who they are…and what they wear.
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 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 collection 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…
He began to conceive, in parallel, unique pieces for a private clientele, guided by this goal: to reveal the confidence, beauty and superb nature of woman. Ready to take the plunge, he created his eponymous label. Well-constructed cuts – structured shoulders and marked sizing – are the signature of Philippe Perissé. The looks bear the touch of insouciance of the label. A ‘narrative’ look that is the essence of dangerous beauty. ‘Beau’ is the symbol of the label. An intriguing chimera that is a bull terrier with the wings of an eagle, he is in some ways the alter ego of Philippe Perissé and the first ambassador of the label. A symbol of hedonism that is both mischievous and poetic, he is simultaneously a friend and protector of his clients.
Beau’s motto is Age Quod Agis (‘Do what you do, and do it well’…especially the fun things).
Philippe Perissé applies this adage to the letter in everything he does. A true tailor, he brings to life impeccable collections for day and night, as well as unique pieces made on demand.
