Alphonse Maitrepierre and Emmanuelle Khanh sign a capsule Couture eyewear collection « The comb »
« I like the idea of an object that is amusing, functional and vintage at the same time. I have been interested in mixing a Boudoir aesthetic with an ultra futuristic design for a while » Alphonse Maitrepierre For Summer 2021, the vision of Eva Gaumé and Alphonse Maitrepierre combine to create a capsule of three sunglasses. From his own research on the history of grooming, a form of vanity that he considers an intricate act that is both personal and fun; the work of Alphonse Maitrepierre around the comb inspires the starting point.
« I was very excited about the collaboration as there is room for new creations considering the very contemporary universe of Maitrepierre meeting the avant-gardist heritage of Emmanuelle Khanh. The comb as well as the glasses are among the objects close to the body, carrying a huge symbolic and emotional value which has always fascinated me » Eva Gaumé
