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:

Saturday 25 May from 11 am to 8 pm
Sunday 26 May from 11 am to 7 pm

Spotlight 31st Marché des Modes : Gisel B.


A former resident of Maisons de Mode in Roubaix who departed in 2016, Gisel B. has now set up shop in Aubenas in the south of France. She returns to Roubaix for this special visit at the newest edition of Marché des Modes this 30 November to 2 December to see her current customers and to introduce her style to the uninitiated in attendance.

Inspired by minerals, vegetation and the world of Scandinavia, Gisel B. offers streamlined, delicate and stylish jewellery that pays no heed to trends. The brand’s designer Clémence Masson builds her collections as selections of timeless pieces, both iconic and feminine. Each piece is created with the idea that a Gisel B. jewel can be worn by every woman, day and night, with a little black dress at cocktails as well on the streets in jeans and trainers. Fine jewellery that’s easy to wear. The Gisel B. woman is both wise and wild, demure and daring, take-charge and chill. In the image of the modern woman, she’s a bit feminist, passionate about life and feels fashion and artistic creativity.

Gisèle is the name of Masson’s grandmother. Originally from the north of France, this former professional seamstress was Masson’s introduction to creativity as a child. Masson learned the basics of sewing on an old Singer sewing machine as a little girl. She recalls afternoons spent with her brother creating embroidery, during which young Masson made outfits for her dolls. Thanks to Grandma Gisèle, Masson grew to love working with her hands and with materials. It was with granny that she discovered the treasures to be found in trunks in the attic: Calais lace, wood buttons and sumptuous fabrics that would influence her work as a jeweller.

Spotlight 31st Marché des Modes : La Clique


Armed with 10 years experience of working in the world of menswear, Bastien has now realized his dream of launching his own label.
With the aid of expert counsel and serious help from his mates, La Clique was born.
Obsessed with accessories such as the baseball cap, Bastien naturally chose this iconic item as the centre-piece of his first collection.
La Clique offers limited edition, high-end caps made in France. The label blends unexpected, luxurious fabrics in totally modern headgear.
The materials employed are sourced from around the world, meeting Bastien’s high standards for quality.
The production is 100% French and in limited editions that correspond with the label’s values of creating in highly skilled studios where workers’ rights are respected.
Bastien’s standards of environmentally sound, ecologically conscious production are also achieved through La Clique.
His first collection is inspired by the world of tailoring with fabrics in houndstooth, pinstripes and Prince of Wales checks.
This collection combines the energy of streetwear with Savile Row posh.
In July 2018, La Clique joined Maisons de Mode through the Jeunes Pousses (green shoots) programme. So it was a no-brainer that Bastien would present his wares at the upcoming Marché des Modes, taking place in Roubaix from 30 November to 2 December.
