A talented and experienced craftsman, Gérard Soupet decided to create his own House in 2019. In his workshop based in Burgundy, this aesthete is a master in designing and manufacturing eyeglass frames by developing specific shaping techniques.
In horn or acetate, this House creates unique frames, sublimates the archetypes by bringing them its artistic sensitivity and places particular care on the finishing work. This exceptional know-how and the confidentiality of its glasses are its signature.
Through their friendship with Daniel Bernard, one of the last French tortoiseshell craftsmen, Maison Gabriel Paris and RCR Atelier Lunetterie have decided to reinterpret André Malraux's glasses in September 2023.
J.M. Weston, a traditional shoemaker for more than 120 years, likes to sublimate classic codes by reinterpreting them with audacity. Their know-how is illustrated in creations as rare as authentic, combining craftsmanship and exceptional techniques inherited from its history. To this heritage is added the use of remarkable materials - such as vegetable-tanned leather - in a thousand combinations.
Maison Gabriel shares the same values, so finalising our silhouettes with beautiful French shoes was natural.
Highlighting iconic models from the Maison J.M. Weston, such as the 180 moccasins in green box calfskin (September 2021), the Derby Golf in brown suede calfskin (September 2022), or the 180 in two-one blue and white, is the purpose of this union.
This house, once masters in the craft of firearms for kings and princes, has reinvented itself since 2012 by seizing the know-how of hunting leather goods. Under his banner stamped with the motto "Armed to Seduce", Fauré Le Page creates exceptional leather goods whose favourite material is canvas, with its tortoiseshell pattern inspired both by the protective envelope of certain animals, chainmail and the rippling shells of dragons.
In April 2023, Maison Gabriel Paris and Maison Fauré Le Page combined their know-how by imagining two iconic costumes with this unique fabric.
Village Paris is a French vintage-inspired men's ready-to-wear brand influenced by American college style and favouring Japanese fabrics. This House values the first function of clothing: to dress comfortably and enduringly. Produced in small series, these pieces are made in France.
From this encounter, in January 2021, a capsule collection was born. In this collection, "the classic meets the casual", highlighted at Rupture et Associés.
MAISON GABRIEL PARIS X MARCH LA.B
March LA.B favours the essential: French timepieces with raw elegance where simplicity is a source of refinement. Vintage-inspired creations claiming "less is more" are a creative requirement that imposes timeless and minimalist models to pass on to future generations.
In December 2020, the two Maisons combined their sense of aesthetics by offering an exclusive and limited black watch: the Belza, a "surfer" who borrows her proud surname from the timeless icon of the Basque coast in Biarritz.
Creator and manufacturer of luxury furnishing fabrics, this French family house has been an integral part of the Parisian skyline since 1935. It draws inspiration from classical and contemporary art or distant ethnic cultures, including interpretations, and always conveys a distinctively French style.
Weaving, embroidering, embossing, frame printing, hand-tying or tracing, shaping, dyeing and upholstering, each of these trades are part of a living tradition that is passed on and still inspires dreams.
With a shared artistic sensibility, the two Houses have combined their know-how: one brings exceptional furnishing fabrics, and the second diverts them into jackets: born in September 2013, the Georges and Léopoldine jackets in smooth cotton and silk velvet.
