Give us 3 words that describe your universe.
Style, timelessness, craftsmanship.
Where do you get your inspiration?
In so many things… A place, a tune, an image, someone I see in the street, a painting, a piece of clothing… My eyes are constantly recording data that pile up in little drawers in my brain and finally get mixed up to create new combinations.
Where do you make your products?
In my workshop that doubles as a showroom, next to the Place de la Bastille, in Paris.
“Made in France”: why that choice?
For me, it is extremely important to be able to control the production of each of my pieces from A to Z and participate in a local economy that highlights traditional craftsmanship.
