Monsieur Lacenaire

Garance Broca is passionate about knitwear. After working for famous French luxury houses, she creates her own brand Monsieur Lacenaire, as a tribute to Pierre François Lacenaire, dandy, criminal and poet who lived in the XIXth century. Garance answers our portrait.

Who are you?
A knit freak specializing in menswear.

How did you start in fashion?
Foregoing basic necessities in order to save money and buy the latest Dries Van Noten or Margiela piece made me realize that fashion design might be the coolest job in the world.

How would you define your style?
Casual chic with a quirky twist, especially when using traditional knit patterns.

What inspires you?
The New Wave French cinema such as "Vincent, François, Paul et les Autres" by Claude Sautet, street art, knit pattern books from my grandma.

A few words about this collection...
Both chic and playful with a focus on the nicest raw fabrics such as Baby Alpaga from Peru or brilliant Merino wool.

What's your favorite piece in our selection?
The Teddy jacket in Superfine Alpaca.

What are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of the stop-motion film (available on the website under "Collaboration") that we made with the illustrator, Io Burgard.

Where do you manufacture your products?
The wool jacquard jumpers are made in France and the Alpaca wool comes from Peru.

Where can we find your collection?
In Paris at Colette and Le Bon Marché, in Berlin, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Brussels, Tokyo...

If your brand was a music, a movie, a cocktail...
"Children of Paradise" by Marcel Carné, where the fascinating character of Monsieur Lacenaire can be seen.
