Spolight 32nd Marché des Modes : Andrée Sorant

Andrée Sorant Marché des Modes mai 2019 Maisons de Mode

As an homage to her maternal grandmother, the essence of elegance and a Prix de Tango prizewinner, Andrée Sorant was the name chosen by designer Louise Motte for her line of women’s accessories.

A devotee of textiles and their traditions, she has chosen to create limited edition silk scarves in the classic carré – or square – style. This luxurious choice requires Motte to be meticulously demanding down to the finest detail, something that is possible due to the legendary skills of the artisans in the Lyon region responsible for printing and producing her scarves.

Vibrant colours and modern elegance imbue collections whose creativity commemorates the designer’s stylish forebearer, known during her day as “the most elegant woman in Arras.”
Drawing from diverse influences and a wide range of design, art and architecture, each scarf is a world unto itself, displaying unique patterns and allowing the wearer different options to style the scarf into its very own graphic objet.

Through her textile research and revisiting classic accessories, the designer behind Andrée Sorant has also created the Col Claude. A unisex accessory, it is inspired by the twist-style scarf of the 1960s and becomes an alternative to the bowtie and necktie. Available in different fabrics (cotton and silk), it can be worn under a shirt collar or as a dickey under an open-collared blouse for women. All models are reversible, showing a different print on each side. It is also adjustable, thanks to a clip in the back, that allows it to fit different necks. All Andrée Sorant scarves are made in France and sewn in Roubaix (a city famed in France for its textile heritage).

Andrée Sorant was part of Maisons de Mode for four years with a boutique-atelier at Le Vestiaire in Roubaix and has shown her collections to professional buyers within the framework of the Maison & Objet trade fair.

Beyond being just a simple accessory, scarves and collar pieces by Andrée Sorant are both refined and relevant. They challenge traditional elements of both womenswear and menswear to give a modern take on style as well as elevating their symbolic character.

In September 2016, Andrée Sorant launched its first home collection, including wallpaper and rugs. The label has now positioned itself as a graphic design studio offering its “retro-refined” prints for use on various objects and through different media that put its traditional know-how on full display.

The label is also working on a collaboration with Blanche Porte and will make its glorious return to the Marché des Modes this 24-26 May.

Spotlight 32nd Marché des Modes : Historia Natural

Historia Natural Marché des Modes mai 2019 Maisons de Mode

It was a love story that led designer Eva Falkowski to Colombia. Discoveries, chance meetings, ideas and revelations came one after another to create the inspiration for Historia Natural : a sparkling Franco-Colombian hybrid. This label first took root in 2016 in Bogota, in a workshop that made pyjamas.

In a quest for simplicity and sobriety in style, the designer created the first bathing suit, dubbed “Sencillo”: a one-piece that crossed in the back. From there the DNA of the label was formed: simplicity, complexity, a desire for perfection, serious but with a certain allure.

Each piece is meticulously conceived with the body in mind: how it moves, bends and flexes, taking into account the fluctuating nature of being a woman. A journey and exchange between two cultures resonates with every collection, designed and executed between France and Colombia. The body and its form and dynamic nature are the starting point of each bathing suit. Special attention has been paid to link each swimsuit with the story the designer has in mind. Every year, she crosses the Atlantic back and forth, designing prototypes and working with production to turn technical expertise into the sun-soaked energy of the label.

The label has now officially launched its second collection: Les Solaires. The name references the colours inspired by the bouquets of flowers sold by vendors on the streets of Bogota. Les Solaires is also about the woman who combines strength and softness and is never less than fascinating.

Now an established force to be reckoned with in its second collection, Historia Natural combines allure, high performance and comfort in every piece. Each garment is made of material that offers flexibility to the wearer while protecting her from UV rays and resisting the ravages of chlorine.

Conceived for every woman and for all activities. The collection is composed of three one-piece bathing suits, three tops and two shapes of bottoms available in a wide range of colours to mix and match as you please.

Alongside this year’s collection, other collections called ‘Excursus’ have been developed to respond to the needs for optimasation of the fabric and innovation to perfect the garments. These pieces will be available only in limited editions.

You can find Eva Falkowski and her Historia Natural collections during the next Marché des Modes taking place 24-26 May 2019 in Roubaix at La Salle Wattremez and Le Vestiaire.

Spotlight 32nd Marché des Modes : Alinfini

Alinfini Marché des Modes mai 2019 Maisons de Mode

Spring is here, so it’s time to start thinking of freshening up your wardrobe. Take advantage of this Marché des Modes, fashion fair to upgrade and update your look. The latest edition will take place 24-26 May in Roubaix at Le Vestiaire as well as in a new location: La Salle Watremez.
With a few weeks to go before the event, we are showing you some of the labels and designers who will be on hand to show their Spring/Summer collections.

Be on the lookout for Alinfini, an accessories line combining eco-friendly, sustainable design with a merging of Western and Moroccan style. Here, the industrial meets quality craftsmanship for a blend that is innovative but steeped in tradition. This modern alchemy transforms an ordinary material – like the seatbelt – into uniquely styled fashion accessories to set your heart on fire.

The label was founded by French designer Sandrine Dole. Based in Marrakech, she has specialised in designing artisan crafted products on the African continent since 1999. Alinfini is not only an expression of her values but also an exploration of her technical expertise as well as a laboratory for experimentation.

The concept is propelled by two overwhelming values: sustainable design and creativity.

The accessories are sturdy, courtesy of the material employed and technical optimization that is economically efficient, with rational and well-regulated production that recycles new waste and used seatbelts. The result is pieces that are machine washable at 40°C (with eco-friendly detergent, of course) and recyclable (if need be) due them being 95% single component.

The products’ designs play endlessly with its material of choice to give it a million and one lives. Through folding and ribbing, braiding and fringing, the strap reveals unsuspected character. The colors shimmer and ripple, the material gleams, and the feel is strong yet comforting. Sublime, serious style that is everchanging and evolving.

Alinfini offers two ranges to serve you different streetwise style: an Haute couture collection with approximately fifty models of bags, belts and cases that are sophisticated, sometimes feminine, sometime unisex – but all made in very limited editions. Then there is a B2B collection of unisex models that are customizable in editions allowing for spotlighting a brand’s image or steps toward sustainable development for sponsors – a range of small accessories and a range of tote bags.

Want to discover the work of Sandrine Dole? Stop by Marché des Modes 24-26 May 2019 in Roubaix at La Salle Watremez (13 Rue de l’Hospice) and at Le Vestiaire (27 Rue de l’Espérance).

Event hours:
Friday 24 May from 4 pm to 9 pm
Saturday 25 May from 11 am to 8 pm
Sunday 26 May from 11 am to 7 pm


Maisons de Mode in the Media

Philippe Perissé, guest on France’s TV5 Monde

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.
