Supporting and enhancing fashion designers across Europe

Unit­ed Fash­ion event: Lille 2019

Trib­ute to a mater­nal grand­moth­er, mod­el of ele­gance and the first prize of Tan­go, Andrée Sorant is the name cho­sen by the design­er Louise Motte to bap­tize her line of accessories.

Sen­si­tive to the tex­tile her­itage, she made the choice of edi­tions of silk squares in lim­it­ed series.
A choice of require­ments and lux­u­ry down to the last detail, a qual­i­ty made pos­si­ble thanks to the tra­di­tion­al know-how of the arti­sans of the Lyon area who fash­ion and print scarves.

Bright col­orama and con­tem­po­rary ele­gance make up col­lec­tions whose cre­ativ­i­ty cel­e­brates the mem­o­ry of this grand­moth­er, who at the time was des­ig­nat­ed as the most ele­gant woman in Arras”.
Com­ing from var­i­ous influ­ences, design, arts, and archi­tec­ture, each scarf is a uni­verse, offer­ing its unique pat­terns and invit­ing mul­ti­ple folds that shape it as a graph­ic object.

In a process of tex­tile research and rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of clas­sic acces­sories, the design­er of Andrée Sorant also cre­ates Col Claude. Uni­sex acces­so­ry, inspired by the Twist Col of the 60s, it becomes an alter­na­tive to the bow tie and the tie. It comes in fab­ric and leather, is worn under a shirt col­lar or plas­tron collar.

Beyond a sim­ple acces­so­ry, scarves, and col­lar Andrée Sorant are a refined and cur­rent sig­na­ture. They ques­tion the tra­di­tion­al acces­sories of the female and male lock­er rooms to give a con­tem­po­rary read­ing and mag­ni­fy their emblem­at­ic character.

In Sep­tem­ber 2016, Andrée Sorant launched a first-line ded­i­cat­ed to the world of the House ( wall­pa­pers, plaid, car­pets ). It is now posi­tion­ing itself in a graph­ic stu­dio and wish­es to decline its retro and refined” prints on mul­ti­ple media that high­light the qual­i­ty of tra­di­tion­al know-how.
