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.
