Hi everyone ! We are Anne-Sophie and Aliseta ! We are two graduates of Atelier Chardon Savard where we created a year-end collection that was shown during the 2014 annual fashion show of the Cirque d’Hiver. Our collection made an impression and allowed us to get in touch with a lot of professionals of the fashion scene.
« But then why not ? »
While keeping the concept we established during our school research, we started to develop our brand « Racailles à Versailles ».
« Why Racailles à Versailles ? »
The name Racailles à Versailles (« Thugs » in Versailles) came from a joke during the viewing of our theme before the fashion show. We had to find a name evocative enough to make everyone understand the brand spirit, it was still a theme at that moment.
Getting inspiration from historical periods and facts has always been one of the main threads of our creation process, but the best thing we could do to make it more substential was to confront it with a completely different universe.
The Royalty theme came by itself, more specifically the rococo and baroque. The « Bad Boy » image was already in the brand’s spirit because of our diverse inspirations. The name of the brand came to us as en evidence as it combines both universes and is very easy to remember.
« What is the brand’s idendity ? »
We want to shake the codes and mix them all. Nowadays clichés and prejudices barely exist, we are here to illustrate them through our creations and our universe. Beyond that, we also want everyone to be able to channel their own personality through our brand. This is why we will settle a customization service for all the pieces of the collection (personal quote following the request).
If we get our inspiration from the street, it’s to be able to dress it.
