Cléone

from creating to sharing

” I have spent my life creating. Today, I want to pass on my know-how. ” 

“When she created her first collection, Cléone was 23 years old. 

She has just styled the overalls so dear to her heart, the one worn by her cabinetmaker and sculptor father. Cléone translates the famous work jacket with raglan sleeves, in cashmere, wool felt and linen canvas. She imagines six models that an article in Télé 7 jours, (a famous French newspaper) is enough to make known.

 At that time, the idea was so popular that every day, dozens of parcels left the Parisian workshop on rue François 1er. 

Almost forty years and a few thousand models later, Cléone has lost none of her artistic youth. One word, one image… and under his fingers a collection is born. Today, Degas and his misty tulles inspire him to marry. 

Yesterday, the opera and Venice printed the silhouettes of the stylist. She lets herself be crossed by the worlds of Hollywood, the fashion of the 1930s, the canvases of the great classic or contemporary painters.

This breath always tends to reveal the beauty and grace of a woman. Cléone has this talent to dress each one in a singular way, because she herself is unique. 

At Cléone, the woman and the dress are one. It’s not just a question of style. Cléone is an outstanding technician. She designs all the dresses she makes in a single stroke, but she also knows how to choose her fabrics, make a patronage and manage a production. 

This former student of the Gogel school in Paris and the Louvre school is above all a disciple of Madeleine Vionnet. 

It is to this great seamstress that she owes  almost everything on the bias.

Therein lies the secret of Cléone comfort. Her clothes hug the body and its movement.

 In Cléone, the woman is feminine and free. 

Better, Cléone knows how to reveal it to herself.
