Who are you?
A passionate designer who loves to surprise and tell different stories in each collection.
How did you start in fashion?
The idea came to me in 1996 after a trip to India. I discovered the world of weavers who still work using ancestral craftsmanship. I was so fascinated by the precision of their work and by the wonderful results they obtained that I decided to design a first collection. This is how the first Petrusse stoles were created. Today we search unceasingly for new inspirations and materials, in order to beautify women and men worldwide.
How would you define your style?
Beyond the whims of fashion!
What inspires you?
The stunning beauty of nature, the many colours of the skies, the trees, churches and cathedrals, my fox-terrier friends…
A few words about this collection...
We have worked with the artist M. Mikaelian
in order to have a contemporary and dynamic impulse on this collection. This gent’s collection is after all the cross-over between our two worlds: contemporary art and the expertise in creating unique and exclusive styles.
What's your favorite piece in our selection?
A scarf called « SILENCE », a true expression of silence…
What are you most proud of?
Of being different.
Where do you manufacture your products?
All our products are firstly made in our heads because they are all exclusive and created by us. We also have workshops where we add tassels, feathers, beads and crystals to our beautiful stoles. Finally, we have been working for nearly twenty years with the traditional weaving techniques from India: they are the masters of jacquard and hand weaving.
