Made in Town
For the launch of Élégance de la Révolte – a timeless line of coats and waistcoats made upon request – Made in Town is turning into a cutting workshop for a few weeks. The workshop puts manufacturing at the forefront, as it unveils the tailor’s gestures, sharpens tools and highlights the know-how handling these tools to transform materials with brilliant craftsmanship.
Élégance de la Révolte not only displays and stages fabrication, but also enables a form of dialogue and interaction with the craftsman and his product, which translates into a fashioning process open to the client’s suggestions and tastes.
The whole stylistic vocabulary of coats is available to the client, ranging from the choice of materials and colors – be it classic wool or cashmere – the various types of pockets, linings and buttons, to the length of the coat, which gives the end garment a personal feel and makes it all the more distinctive.
The project deliberately goes against the current fashion system, with the aim of creating a new pace of consumption, in which the manufacturing time plays in concrete terms a more legitimate role. Deciding to have a garment made for oneself is the opportunity to start, before it even exists, a relationship with it that will most likely go on for years to come. By ordering this summer, you will experience the pleasure of waiting a few weeks for your coat to be made to your requirements, and thus truly appreciate wearing it by next fall, starting from September.
In partnership with the Domaine de Cantaussel.
Veló by Zin was born from the encounter of two architects, Niccolo Di Paola and Zaida Mañas. In 2013, their shared wish to create and make shoes using a traditional process pushed them to establish their own workshop.
Made in Town welcomes De Bonne Facture for the presentation of a series of models which cast light on the know-how of the French artisans and producers who created them.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
