Les Journées Particulières by LVMH
LES JOURNÉES PARTICULIÈRES BY LVMH AT LE BON MARCHÉ RIVE GAUCHE
The fourth edition of Les Journées Particulières will take place on 12th to 14th October 2018, showcasing the diverse range of skills and expertise offered by the Houses within the LVMH Group. To mark the occasion, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche presents 10 young women entrepreneurs who have created their own brand.
Each one reworks classic designs in their own unique style, applying their talent and exacting standards to artisan excellence.
As part of the Master Classes initiative led by journalists, these women will talk about their career paths, what led them to follow their dreams and how they are driven by a passion for their jobs.
Charlotte de Fayet et Lorine Driot
Hailing from Paris, Charlotte de Fayet decided to take over the Molli brand when her second child was born, after visiting one of its stores to exchange a gift and learning that the company was about to close down. She went on a textiles course at the Institut Français de la Mode (French Fashion Institute) before redesigning the babywear range. She then moved on to her first women's ready-to-wear collection. Classic with a twist, each piece is embellished with unexpected delicate details. Uncompromising on quality, Molli only uses pure new wool or combed cottons.
The Molli brand is located in the 'multi-savoir' section on the second floor of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche.
Before creating her Nupié brand of sandals, Lorine Driot tried on shoes all over the world. She found the perfect style in Venezuela. To make them last longer, she used local textiles to update the fabric ties – and so the Nupié concept was born.
A former press officer with a publishing house, Lorine Driot understands the importance of travelling light and absorbing local colours to suit your mood and the time of day. Her sandals combine the perfect sole with immaculate finishes made from cotton, silk, leather and more. Simply pop different ties in your suitcase to take you straight from the beach to nights out.
In an artisan workshop in Italy, Lorine Driot crafts a sole made from the highest quality Tuscan leather. The ribbons are woven and embroidered by artisans from all over the world.
The Molli brand has been located in the footwear zone at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche since January 2016.
« Nous sommes parties à la recherche des meilleurs ateliers en France et Italie. Nous avons privilégié l’esprit « petit atelier familial ». Nous connaissons les prénoms de toutes les équipes ! » Charlotte de Fayet
Marion Vidal et Céline Lefebure
Marble, ceramic, perspex: Marion Vidal works closely with materials, forming strong partnerships with mostly Italian artisans. Her aesthetic, sculptural approach to jewellery gives her eponymous brand a colourful, geometric look, instantly recognisable at first glance.
As a Parisian entrepreneur, Marion Vidal designs jewellery that combines Mediterranean heritage with the Made in France concept. Everything is crafted in her Parisian workshop, where her team also assembles the pieces during the production process.
The Marion Vidal brand has been located in the jewellery section at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche since January 2010
Having distributed various Italian brands and worked on selecting collections for France, the time came for Céline Lefébure to launch the brand that bears her name in 2015.
Céline Lefébure bags boast Italian expertise and Parisian style. Her style is the result of a constant quest for timeless simplicity and elegance, redefining classic designs with her own twist. She takes her inspiration from understated Parisian architecture, blurring the boundaries between masculine and feminine and drawing on premium materials used for home décor.
The Céline Lefébure brand is located in the leather goods section at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche.
« Mon exigence de qualité s’exprime d’abord dans le design : des proportions justes, de l’équilibre, un dialogue entre les formes et les couleurs, mais également dans le choix de matériaux de grande qualité. » Marion Vidal
Aurélia Stouls, Claire Auzouy et Pascale Gal
Aurélia Stouls founded her Stouls brand in 2004. Her previous career as a stylist for French shoe brands led to her love of leather.
With her unique way of working with leather, she reinvents how it is used and worn. Her very first idea, a leather T-shirt, led to the innovative Stouls machine-washable leather collection based on truly unusual pieces. This original piece grew into a collection that is easy to wear, wash and enjoy for everyday wear, whatever the occasion, featuring bright colours.
Supple, stretchy and extremely fine plongé or suede lambskin leathers are produced and tanned in France then made into garments in the workshops.
Friends for over 20 years, Claire Auzouy has spent many years in the world of gastronomy and luxury, whilst Pascale Gal's background is in the pharmacy field. In 2015, they decided to launch slow beauty, a concept close to their hearts.
With their Les Huilettes brand of organic and vegan cosmetics, Claire and Pascale have restored all the prestige of natural cosmetics. As a true guarantee, these beauty entrepreneurs have even created a charter under the LABESSENTIEL label, setting out the fundamentals of Les Huilettes in terms of effectiveness and safety as well as their ethical, social and environmental approach.
The 'Les Huilettes' brand is located in La Petite Épicerie de la Beauté.
« Tous nos partenaires ont été choisi pour leur professionnalisme et leur exigence de qualité. Nous leur avons également demandé d'adhérer à la charte Labessentiel. Cette charte est un label de qualité qui nous engage avec eux » Claire et Pascale
