Here I did a small selection of some French Brands that I discovered quite recently.
Olympia Le Tan and Le SportSac have collaborated to make a nylon version of these famous book-handbags. Now you can find them in 3 different versions for 59,90 €.
Olympia Le-Tan is a fashion designer. She was born in London and raised in Paris . She started her career at the Chanel design studio with Karl Lagerfeld then went on to Balmain where she worked closely with Gilles Dufour who then created his own brand with Olympia by his side.
In 2009, she launched her eponymous accessories label, combining her two obsessions, embroidery (a talent she inherited from her grand-mother), and literature (a passion she shares with her father, French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan) to create one of a kind handbags and minaudières. The bags are handmade with love in France in very limited editions.
They are now distributed in over 80 select shops around the world. The brand’s signature book-clutch has been seen on Tilda Swinton, Natalie Portman or Clémence Poésy to name a few.
Émilie Luc-Duc. In 2012, Repetto called her to launch their first prêt-a-porter line. For summer 2015, she creates the first collection composed of a unique silhouette close to her own image: humble, pure and refined.
Emily before worked for different famous designers such as Vanessa Bruno, Anne Valérie Hash, Baby Dior and Rodier. Since 2012, she works with Repetto, for the launch of prêt à porter collections.
Sandro & Reebok. Reebok Classic teams up with Sandro Paris on an inaugural capsule collection for SS15. The collection centers on Reebok Classic’s iconic InstaPump Fury, a fusion of the distinct yet complementary design aesthetics of both brands – in two limited edition styles.
Sessùn Oui is the first collection dedicated to romantic and bohemian Brides. It will be available from March 2015 in all Sessùn stores, and Sessùn corners. Prices from 120 to 350 euros.
Inspired by a trip to South America, French designer Emma François founded her Sessun label in 1996. Mixing eclectic prints with earthy tones, Sessun’s feminine yet functional aesthetic is seen across a collection of simple shift dresses, cotton separates and fine knitted.
Kitsuné. A selection of clothes and accessories, celebrating the tradition of coffee experience in cosmopolitan life.
Kitsuné was born in 2002 following the meeting between Gildas Loaëc, who was at the time manager and artistic director of the band Daft Punk, and the architect Masaya Kuroki, who switched to fashion design. Very quickly they both decided to set up a business in line with their interests, cleverly bridging music, fashion and design. “Kitsuné is a unique concept of trendy and modern luxury intermingling fashion and music. We have been known for the quality of our choices for more than 10 years now” says Gildas Loaëc.
Manoush. And the best for the last! I discovered Manoush few years ago and since them I am addicted to it. The Manoush girl of this year is Poppy Delevingne. You can see a video in the website where she takes the spotlight as the Manoush girl, in a dynamic and vibrant film set in the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs.
Born in 2002, la Maison Manoush is a French feminine brand which succeeded in the fashion world by breaking the rules. It all started when the designer Frederique Trou-Roy returned from a colorful-experience trip in Marrakech. After wandering in Marrakech markets, full of imagination she came back to Paris with a collection of accessories. Frederique didn’t stop the adventure, after further trips to India, Africa, Middle Est and Africa where she found her inspiration, she came back full of ideas and the Manoush style was born: feminine, bohemian and handcrafts. We recognize la Maison MANOUSH style throughout the embroidery work, application of sequins, colorful prints which make every piece unique and recognizable.
