Dapper designer reinventing the bow tie for style cats the world over
ACCESSORIES DESIGNER ENTREPRENEUR
Franco-Swedish designer Alexandre Chapellier quit the stock exchange at 30, launching his own luxury men’s accessories brand, Cinabre. It wasn’t a total volte-face: his Swedish great-uncle was a renowned tailor in the small town of Filipstad (Alexandre still uses his scissors and tape). The maison launched its first Paris boutique in the 10th arrondissement in 2015, with its savoir-faire (all pieces are handcrafted in the Loire Valley atelier) drawing fans from Kanye West to Pharrell Williams and famously President Emmanuel Macron.
