Diffusée ce week-end, l’émission Dimanche en France était consacrée à la ville de Roubaix ! Reconnue entre autres pour la richesse de son activité textile, elle s’est intéressée au label Maisons de Mode via un passage au Vestiaire pour rencontrer Magali, une des fondatrices de la marque Not So Far et également à une success-story du dispositif : Le Colonel Moutarde ! Rémi et Clémence ont donc ouvert les portes de leur atelier aux caméras de France 3 !
Maisons de Mode will be on hand at the Traffic trade show taking place at Paris’ Carreau du Temple this April 4 and 5.
Want to know more about our events? Want to join Maisons de Mode? Let’s meet up during these two days dedicated to young fashion designers.
For ten years, Maisons de Mode has guided and supported more than 100 labels and designers, watching the genesis of great brands such as Le Colonel Moutarde, Justine Clenquet, Demeure, and Clivia Nobili, among others…
Encore une bonne nouvelle pour Le Colonel Moutarde qui a investit dernièrement le 13 rue du Cirque en plein Vieux Lille pour s’y installer et voler de ses propres ailes, hors du dispositif Maisons de Mode ! Félicitations à toute l’équipe et rendez-vous le 29 juin pour l’inauguration de ce nouvel espace !
Xavier Bertrand, president of the Hauts de France region, came to Maisons de Mode at 62 Rue du Faubourg des Postes in Lille to meet the Colonel Moutarde team personally. The visit was for France’s National Week of Craftsmanship, and also to congratulate Le Colonel Moutarde for winning the Export CCI award.
This occasion allowed the regional president to discover what happens behind the scenes of a small/medium-sized business that delivers bow ties daily to all four corners of the world and also supplies 30 points of sale, including the brand’s three boutiques in Lille, Paris, and London. A true success story that the politician could witness during his visit.
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.
