Chevalier d'éon - silk Carré scarves for the contemporary aesthetes
Chevalier d'éon - First collection
Chevalier d'éon creates unique, ambiguous pieces aimed at women and men of character, freeing themselves from conventions.
Chevalier d’éon carré scarves accompany questing contemporary aesthetes with elegance and refinement on their own epic journeys.
The brand and its concept:
Chevalier d’éon, an eponymous brand created in 2018 draws its inspiration from the art of living, refinement, the voluptuousness of a distant era and from the heritage of this emblematic 18th-century character.
A dandy, spy, diplomat, officer, a man of letters, provocateur, sometimes a man and sometimes a woman. The life of the Knight of Eon was one of cultivated ambiguity because of his androgynous physique and a personality veiled by mystery.
A veil of mystery that chevalier d’éon brand honours with a unique piece that crosses borders and time – the Carré scarf. Symbol of nobility, refinement, and seduction, the carré scarf is the ultimate dash of style that sublimates the silhouette.
The scarves :
A luxurious silk that gives the scarf an elegant drop, a luminous look, with generous dimensions offering a fluid drape and an infinite possibility of wearing.
Chevalier d'éon creates his squares scarves from silk twill woven in Italy. They are then printed and manufactured in France (near Lyon, historic cradle of the french silk industry ) in a workshop with recognised know-how also working for luxury houses.
Thanks to its personal and original graphic creations, specific to its elegant and unconventional universe, the brand propose a strong visual identity.
Furthermore, Chevalier d'éon favours quality over quantity by offering small collections made up of models produced in limited series.
For its very first collection, chevalier d'éon proposes 4 original creations:
A precious case to accommodate the carrés scarves and their certificate of authenticity:
Chevalier d'éon is an entrepreneurial and family momentum, a shared love for beautiful things, the art of living and a passion for well-done work. Chevalier d'éon is also the union of 3 creative, original and complementary spirits : Véronique, Sophie, and Bertan. 3 wills who decided in April 2018 to create the brand (... and give life back to an iconic character and fashion accessory).
In a few months, the brand has moved from the idea to the concept stage, to a concrete and advanced project.
