The inspirations of our stylists - Collection expires

  • Why this theme "expires"?
Catherine : "Chrysoline gives us an idea, a situation, a word, a desire. Here, through "Expire", it was to be responsible in the production of the collection from its conception while preserving aesthetics. We then refined this idea by looking for a whole art of living, areas and news elements around this theme. The idea was therefore to start from the observation of the fashion industry as it is currently and to find ways to make it more responsible without losing the aesthetics. The perfect example is that of the green flow: an old railway trail that has been sublimated by nature without losing its industrial essence. »» Cecile : "For our collections, the question was as follows: how the T.P.R. Can sublimate what is not beautiful? We want make the manager attractive and obvious. Let him be an integral part of everyday life as a breathing, of course without thinking about it. »»
  • What does this collection embody?
Catherine : "This collection is the sublimation of the existing by creating an aesthetic and responsible product. This translates, for example, in the Christmas collection (still a little patience) by the use of glitter fabrics that we already had in stock in order to sell them and no longer supply rye fabrics. The accessories of the capsule "the small exceptional leather goods" (here too, still a little patience) are made from the leather falls of the largest luxury houses. If we look in more detail, the white sweater is in polyester from beet sugar fermentation: this saves 60% greenhouse gases and 50% energy. We are proud to be innovative with these new materials. »»

It is the art of restoring a life to the objects in aesthetic way: to sublimate waste for example dried flowers. In this movement, people live purely and lead a simple and rudimentary life. The materials are raw. " Maria : "Then the Furoshiki, also Japanese. It is a method for packing your gifts with fabrics in a zero-gaming approach, while keeping an aesthetic aspect. There is also the Studio 5.5, which is a kind of hospital for furniture. We put a "prosthesis" which is not in the original style of the furniture, and this creates a brand new unique and original object. »»
