LOGNON
PLEATER SINCE 1853

The Maison Lognon marries traditional craft skills and digital technology with cutting-edge techniques. Its deft-fingered experts create elaborate interplays of volume in flat expanses of fabric in a highly demanding process that requires painstaking accuracy and detailed knowledge of the characteristics of each material. Perfect pleating takes unspoken coordination and perfect fingertip synchronization from two pleaters working together.

LEMARIÉ
FEATHER AND FLOWER MAKER
SINCE 1880

Founded by Palmyre Coyette, the House of Lemarié has existed since 1880. An expert in flowers and feathers, Lemarié also excels at ‘couture’ (incrustations, ruffles, sophisticated smocking…) and the creation of pleats. The House is an essential partner for the ten annual CHANEL collections by Karl Lagerfeld and joined CHANEL’s Métiers d’art in 1996.

DESRUES
COSTUME JEWELLER SINCE 1929

Aligning savoir faire with creativity, this is the talent of the House of Desrues, the ‘parurier d'art’. Founded by Georges Desrues in 1929, the factory crafts buttons, jewellery, belt buckles as well as handbag clasps each season. Partners with CHANEL since 1965, Desrues was the first Métier d’art to be acquired by the House in 1985.
