Maisons de Mode in the Media

A clip from Des Gens des Hauts with Kamini et Minirine

Marché des Modes 24-26 may : the programme


Forget the pasta necklace and the traditional bouquet of flowers (even if they are, obviously, among the most treasured gifts for Mum in the world). The next Marché des Modes will take place during Mother’s Day weekend in two landmark places in the city of Roubaix : La Salle Watremez and Le Vestiaire Maisons de Mode.

This supercharged weekend will unfold under the sign of “Party!”

At la Salle Watremez : tens of stands of designers, a huge plant Pop Up shop, yummy nibbles and “home-made” cakes, a mother/daughter photo call and DJ sets to get you grooving!

From the entrance at this former industrial building to the old school greenhouse atmosphere, the mood of “plant Pop Up shop” for indoor vegetation (seen often on Instagram but almost never in person) will be executed by Brume.

Following the theme set by the verdant décor by Bobotóv, Margaux at Home will be serving up delicious nibbles and ‘home-made’ cakes all under an arbour in a relaxed restaurant space.
A photo call will be set up for family selfies to immortalise this day out, with the ambiance and festive flavour added to the event by DJ Afrojaws.

At Le Vestiaire and Maisons de Mode boutiques : yoga, Sunday brunch, organic nibbles and DIY workshops…


Maisons de Mode designers will welcome attendees throughout the weekend to their boutique-ateliers located in Le Vestiaire and on Avenue Jean Lebas near the La Piscine Museum.

At Le Vestiaire, the bar/restaurant Food – La Cantine will offer its traditional Sunday Brunch as well as its “home-made” menu of 100% organic and locally sourced delicious dishes throughout the weekend.

To make the weekend something completely different, the Marché des Modes will serve up new activities. You can kick off the day Sunday a yoga vinyasa class with Julie Cousin (Julyoga) to get you in the right mood. There are also Do-It-Yourself workshops that will be given by Sophie Masson Porcelaine, Atelier Moon and Lenna before you can discover the latest collections from these designers.

Spotlight 32nd Marché des Modes : Marthe Cresson

Marthe Cresson Marché des Modes mai 2019 Maisons de Mode

The jewellery of Marthe Cresson is conceived as sculptures to be worn.
Her collections are born through her need to transmit her attraction to the materials.
She chooses each material for its formal as well as technical aspect. Through working with each material, Marthe Cresson is able to offer shapes that are streamlined, shifting and entrancing.

The jewellery of Marthe Cresson is mechanical.
The jewellery of Marthe Cresson has simple mechanisms with finely detailed work. They are meant to be worn and examined as an exploration of the material of which they are composed. Each piece merges the two worlds of Marthe Cresson: industrial design and craftsmanship, at constant interplay in her creations.

Marthe Cresson is herself the product of two disciplines: product design and jewellery design. She studied applied arts at Paris’ famed l’Ecole Boulle, product design at the prestigious ESAAT in Roubaix, jewellery design at the renowned jeweler l’Afedap in Paris, and Jewellery and accessories design at Head in Geneva, while spending a year working at the legendary jewellery house Boucheron.

You can discover the full range of her work at the upcoming Marché des Modes taking place in Roubaix 24-26 May (La Salle Watremez and Le Vestiaire Maisons de Mode).

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.
