Cinabre

What is the probability that a vintage fabric and antique hunter will also be a herald of French Know-How, coupled with a fashion enthusiast who also collects robots? Pretty faint, but it was this conjunction that gave birth to Cinabre. Its creator, Alexandre Chapellier, breathed a new energy into French luxury by specializing in the accessory for men: ties, bow ties, scarves, small leather goods ...

Who are you?
A creative entrepreneur and a talent developer: it was my job when I worked in finance, to identify the strongest entrepreneurs and to give them the means to evolve. Today, in Cinabre workshops, I work with the best and I help preserve the exercise of their talents.

How did you start in fashion?
By meeting the famous designer Michel Goma six years ago, who still advises me

How would you define your style?
Original patterns, strong colors and high-end products

What inspires you?
SF genre, vintage fabric that i hunt, meeting new people...

A few words about this collection...
There are ties, bow ties, buttonholes and wallets. The common thread is the search for original fabrics to create unique and colorful pieces that stand out from a rather standardized and conservative masculine accessory market.

What's your favorite piece in our selection?
I love our colorful but chic wallets which required 6 months of development to test and validate an optimal size, to identify those few centimeters that had to be disposed of to obtain a practical and comfortable piece to wear in pants.

What are you most proud of?
Learning a job from scratch: printing on fabric, neck bow and tie handcrafting, fur collar... It took me 2 years and a very nice road trip through France to meet more than one hundred craftmen.

Where do you manufacture your products?
Made in France : Lyon Mountains, Loir et Cher, Paris...

Where can we find your collection?
In France at Colette, Le Bon Marché,... and luxury concept stores in the USA and Asia.

If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
