Valentine Gauthier was grown-up on the « Plateau du Castellet », right next to the « Paul Ricard » circuit. His father was at the time a test driver and technical director on Formula One for major automobile races while his mother worked at the Winfield Racing School.

 

From his studies in geo-ethnology and styling, at the studios of Maison Martin Margiela, winner of the International Festival of young fashion designers of Dinard just before the launch of its eponymous brand in 2007 and the opening of its first shop in 2009, Valentine's course reflects his state of mind: free, voluntary and passionate.

 

But if she loves fashion, she wants to think it differently. His innumerable travels have enriched his DNA with traditional know-how from all over the globe, from South America to Asia.

 

To this richness, the stylist will add the right dose of modernity that makes the essence of her brand: a style both urban, refined and relaxed. Far from the girly style, the ultra feminine is twisted by references to the masculin, military or worker wardrobe.

 

Her obsession: to create a desirable and ideal wardrobe, clothes to wear and to mix according to her desires. Its approach: to pay particular attention to the choice of fabrics, to the quality of manufacture, to the cutting, and to the choice of buttons and finishing.

 

Valentine likes the opposition games, the raw material of the workers, the refinement of transparencies of silk or cotton, the wool tweedy as well as the lace. The printed drawings created in the workshop balance the full or the dull colors.

Easy to wear and mix, the garments keeps a unique look. A silhouette completed by shoes made in the workshop of his partner, shoemaker for four generations.
