40 rue de Sévigné, 75003 Paris
Our space on rue de Sévigné in the heart of the Marais is a work of art in and of itself, designed in collaboration with Belgian artist Arne Quinze. A vestibule that brings sensorial awareness away from the street and towards the olfactory, with an exceptional array of niche perfumes lining the walls. Moving into the main space, the visitor enters a unique environment, composed of two tons of wooden planks and 147 video screens. Menswear and womenswear collections are hidden and revealed behind moving walls, constantly blurring the lines between illusion and reality.
The designers featured here, including Yohji Yamamoto, 08 Sircus, Haider Ackermann, and Comme des Garçons, are amongst the most exciting in fashion today, living in total affinity with the atmosphere — all with the goal of surprising, delighting and seducing. A remarkably interactive environment, Sévigné brings together art, technology, design and the legendary style unique to Leclaireur.
“This is not a store, it’s an experience. This project is the formatting of a dream, an intention fed with emotions, stories, memories; like in a tale in which I hope everyone can find a little of themselves.” — Arne Quinze
