Who are you?
Camille Hourdeaux and Kevin Serpaggi, both 31-years-old. We are living together, not to far from here, in 9th arrondissement of Paris.
How did you start in fashion?
Camille : "I am a graphist and a modelist, I love fashion and I draw since I am a child... I am quite fond of design too and I love seeing shoes as genuine objects !"
Kevin : "I don't really see myself into the fashion universe, but I always loved shoes. Getting some pair were truely milestone events in my life ! I love the way a shoe can underline your personality, among women and men."
A few words about this collection...
It's our first collection. A small collection with few pieces, each drawned and produced by hand. We work over the past year, we had to find the right leather, develop processes for the washout effect "washed", good craftsmen. Each model has a name engraved on the sole, singular identity. They are all made in Italian workshops using full grain calf leather, the finest materials. Every detail is important! We're really pleased with the result!
What are you most proud of?
Camille : "Building my own brand in such a short time, and with my lover ! "
Kevin : "I love and I wear all our products, and I am really very proud of our Phantom. I have always been looking for it."
Where do you manufacture your products?
Our workshops are in Italy, we are spending more and more time over there to follow each step of our shoes production.
If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
Kevin : "The Soft Parade album of the Doors, it was playing over and over when we were working...A cocktail ? Gin Tonic (Bombay Saphir please !)"
Camille "Au revoir Simone, we were listening to it during our first shooting..."
