EPLE AND MELK
In 2006, inspired by Bauhaus design, Scandinavian fashion and the refined needlework of her own grandmother, Flore Mouren started her brand, Eple & Melk (Norwegian for “Apple and Milk”), an elegant mix of Scandinavian culture and Parisian sophistication with clean, casual, stylish cuts. Each collection is 100% made in France, with a passion for clothes and beautiful fabrics in mind.

Give us 3 words that describe your universe.

Where do you get your inspiration?
On the one hand in a Scandinavian universe composed of misty landscapes, architectural lines and raw or casual materials, and on the other hand in a poetic world inspired by my grandmother who was a professional embroiderer.
Where do you make your products?
All my creations are 100% made in France, in Paris. The fabrics and leathers also originate from France for the most part.
