Luxury where one least expects it
We venture into a place that most Parisians as well as most visitors forget: a colorful immigrant neighborhood in northern Paris, where Luxury is extremely present. There outstanding craftspeople and young designers take advantage of the affordable rents to create for great couturiers and to develop their own collections.
The owners of these establishments receive us personally. Exceptionally, they explain their backgrounds, projects and techniques. They take us into their workshops, which are impressive – sometimes for their materials and equipment, and sometimes by revealing what a skilled craftman produces with merely a table and expertly-wielded tools.
