Mr. & Mrs. Perrin

« My motto is to keep it simple and chic ».

Charismatic Artistic Creator and General Manager Sally Perrin sets the tone. Founded in 1893, RigaudyPerrin was France’s premier purveyor of leather gloves for the major couture houses.

In 2009, the family-owned company relaunched as Perrin Paris and extended their expertise into a collection of luxury leather handbags & accessories. at that time, Michel Perrin, the French-born CEO and his American wife sally together with their daughters Chloé & Emma, relocated to southern California from Paris.

The newly launched luxury line of handbags and leather accessories revived the multigenerational family business by combining the finest quality skins with highly conceptual design. brother, Henri, oversaw the Perrin tannery in Vietnam. although Michel’s family history in the leather-glove business extends back generations, Sally & Michel Perrin opted to relaunch the brand by introducing a line of handbags to compliment the glove collection.

Dior’s new Home Decor Collection

The very first Christian Dior home collection launched this week at the house’s new and grand four-story shop in London. Peter Marino designed the Home space in the new Dior shop to resemble a conservatory, with greenery along the white trellis and a diamond-shaped skylight that runs the entire length of the entrance.

For the launch, the brand tapped 11 designers to create a range of pieces that includes handblown glass carafes, ceramic plates, decks of Dior-printed playing cards, notebooks, crystal glassware, and hand-embroidered linens. The designers include India Mahdavi; Lucie de la Falaise; Michaël Cailloux; and the store’s designer, Peter Marino. For each season, there will be a rotating group of artists and designers creating unique pieces under this new in-house label.

The aesthetic of each Dior Home item pays homage to the founder himself—his love of flowers, his progressive and feminine dress silhouettes, and his unmistakable, signature gray and pastel pink. source : Vogue
