|About Sans-Arcidet Collection Paris|
How is Sans-Arcidet different from all other labels you will find coming from France?
For starters, the designer behind the much-loved label, Corinne Sans-Arcidet, doesn’t actually live in France. She has been living in Madagascar with her family for more than 8 years and it is from there she designs and manufactures her products, having set a unique production scheme involving hundreds of local women. It is her two sisters, Myriam and Sylvie, who oversee operations from their office and showroom in Paris, and manage their beautiful boutique in the fashionable Marais district.
Then there are the techniques used to produce the collections—traditional local raffia weaving techniques are skillfully combined with a distinct French design aesthetic, including embellishments using embroidery, quality leather, cotton, wool and denim - to create coveted seasonal collections of brightly coloured bags, baskets, hats and accessories, and soon, homewares.
With such a unique “ethno-chic” style, it is no wonder Sans-Arcidet’s collections are being adopted by a growing number of stores all over the world including Printemps, Takashimaya, Barneys, Daimaru, and Mitsukoshi.
