Claire Châtaigner: An exceptional gift set fit for Le Bon Marché
Dernière mise à jour : 1 mars
What if the body no longer had to adapt to suit the garment, but the garment
was finally adapted to suit the body? This is the question that has always
fuelled Claire Châtaigner’s creativity in her work.
This teacher and researcher in social and biological anthropology, who also happens
to be the coordinator of the ESMOD Fashion Design master’s courses, still manages
to find the time to create bespoke garments for Le Bon Marché’s private clients.
Her creations, available as Demi Mesure (adaptation of an existing model) or Grande
Mesure (unique pieces from their design through to their production, including the
choice of materials, embroidery and embellishments), are the only ones of their kind
in Le Bon Marché’s ladieswear department and are available exclusively in the
sumptuous Salons Particuliers private lounges of Paris’ first department store where
she receives her clients.
The historic offices of Aristide Boucicaut on the 3 rd floor have been fully renovated
and transformed into reception rooms and small private lounges, complete with fitting
rooms and an adjoining Moet & Chandon bar... A rare and precious luxury, just like
Claire Châtaigner’s generous ‘bespoke’ box—a great gift and an invitation to sample
the quality of this unprecedented service.
Claire Châtaigner unpacks her ‘creative suitcase’ in the Salons Particuliers at Le Bon Marché to offer affordable bespoke solutions.
From wedding dresses and formalwear to daytime pieces and cocktail dress, all of
the creations are made by Claire herself, with the help of the finest Parisian
manufacturers and craftsmen. An Haute Mesure 100% wool satin-lined coat could be
yours from €1,800, a jumpsuit or short dress from €1,700... a plethora of bespoke
creations to help liberate the body from the traditional shackles of clothing thanks to
this revolutionary initiative that she is also fine-tuning on a more industrial level with a
global 4.0 project that will soon be making news.
In the meantime, Claire’s Coffret d’Exception box will no doubt be topping the end-of-
year gift wishlist!
