A former press agent, Marie Marot is a young poet and new designer. This season, she launches a simple yet effective capsule collection around two accessories, a street style beanie and a cluth both adorned with a metal plate engraved with a double meaning word, filled with hidden messages, puns and desire of freedom.
How would you define your style?
Timeless and simple.
What inspires you?
Past and present; my childhood, people I meet in my everyday life, travels, books, emotions..
A few words about this collection...
It's the pantheon of my heroes, men who were a symbol of their time while remaining modern and timeless. Each within his own medium – words, music, still images or moving pictures – every single one of them is sensitive and revolutionary, evoking youth, subversion and an uncompromising sense of freedom.
We have all learned from these geniuses: sensitivity with Moz[art], insubordination with [War]hol, adventure with Heming[way], individuality with B[as]quiat, shock with Bu[ko]wski and limitlessness with [God]ard.
What's your favorite piece in our selection?
The Heming(way) clutch and the (God)ard beanie.
What are you most proud of?
Where do you manufacture your products?
Between Paris and Istanbul.
Where can we find your collection?
France, Italy, Greece, England, Japan, Corea, USA and at l'Exception! :)
