During spring 2010, Antoine Bolze and Alexis Maugey created Bobbies, the first parisian brand of colourful loafers with a twist. Their project? Mixing modern shapes and bright colors to an audacious version of this legendary shoe. Season after season, Bobbies revisits shoe classics: boots, derbies, ballerinas and sandals are given an elegant and creative makeover. Bobbies is about a poetic and colorful story following Jean-Bobby, the most frenchy pelican, in his fabulous adventures. We use color as a source of inspiration and carefully select the most beautiful Italian leather. Play on fabrics, renewed shapes, energetic colors: collections follow each other, but each one is different.

Our brand "Camille & Clémentine" was born from our two personalities. We met each other at the ceramic school, Duperré art school in Paris, and we got on well on many senses. Friendship first, and our common approach of the earth gathered us naturally. Then, We decided to create this brand right after school, with our names on it, as a ceramic portrait. This is how a soft, colorful and naïve version of ceramic rised. We made daily objects in white stoneware. Every piece has a "little ear", allusion to some shape of traditional ceramic, and is entirely handmade in our studio near Paris.
“We both still remember that first time we assembled hand made "ears" to our molded cup. With their small ears, we thought, "now they are our cups!" It was obvious and it became our personal touch. Today, We carry on adding ears to our products as a signature and as a way of doing, and we couldn't imagine a bowl or a cup without them.” Camille & Clémentine

Cerise grew up observing her grandfather who always wore elegant three pieces suits and hats that she often borrowed. For her 18th birthday, she asked him to get her a beautiful headpiece. Shortly after, she stopped working in the art market, took millinery courses and opened La Cerise sur le chapeau. The asset of the brand is that it offers a concept: " When I was thinking about my project, I realized that most hats at the time were either black, brown or grey. So I decided to reinvent them by injecting colors". The clients get to choose between 6 designs and then personalize their piece by picking up the fabric (Fur-felt or Panama) and the color. The color doesn't just concern the hat itself, but also the ribbon and the tick!
Located in its Parisian workshop in the 6th arrondissement, La Cerise sur le Chapeau has been creating easy-to-wear, classical and colourful hats both for ladies and gentlemen for the past 9 years.
I'm a jeweler and graphic designer based in Paris. Each of my pieces are worked carefully by hand in a little atelier, that's why they are unique pieces or limited series. Wood and metal are my favorites materials but polymer, textiles or ceramic are part of my work too. The origin of each piece is different: the shape of a building, the ambiance of a film or an art movement influence their shapes and colors. With my jewels I want to be far away from the "mass production" and try to get closer to the art's world: photography, architecture, cinema, painting, design.
“Even if I've always did my own accessories, the first time I cut and soldered metal to make my first ring was the moment I realized I wanted to do that forever! It was just magical being able to transform a rough fragment of brass into a gorgeous piece of art.” Paula

The brand is inspired by Parisian elegant and "avant-garde" fashion. It has a classic but yet trendy DNA. The collection is based on two designs: The « V » Bag (rectangular-shaped) and the Mini « V » (square-shaped). Mostly leather based, the bonus of the brand is that it offers the customers the option to pimp their own bag by customising each of its elements (The handle, the buckle, the studs and/or the material). If you ever wondered what the “effortless chic Parisian style” looks like, check out Vanessa Klat fashion line.
“When I designed the Mini “V” bag, I wanted to create a versatile bag which could be worn during the day and the evening. I decided to go for smaller dimensions than the first « V » bag. Who wants to be bothered with a big bag when going out?! I was very happy with the prototype. I could fit in all my essentials in a bag that was small enough to allow perfect dance moves! As for the leather I usually go for vintage. I then decided to add a Tiger Eye on the flap to add a funky touch to it. Intuition is the driver behind all of the designs. « Crush making » is a trademark here.” Vanessa
