Marie Chaumette and Deniz Kirkanahtar do not make fashion, they make beautiful things. Their clothes are a reflection of Parisian elegance, love of a job well done and profound respect for human beings. Everything is imagined and created at the C&P boutique in the heart of the French capital.
The pleasure of creating
A far cry from the “fast fashion” of the big brand names, these two designers are attached to working with things they love and that is undoubtedly what has given their clothes such a special feel. A savvy blend of energy and chic is translated into cuts that are very distinct, minimalist and colourful, associated with ranges of quality fabric, the reflection of the work involved. With a few timeless pieces, the brand defends a certain vision of clothing through the freedom of the creations. Marie and Deniz want to offer pieces that make you feel good when you put them on. Their clothes respect people. They make their presence felt, but they work with the wearer’s personality without taking over. Genuine balance.
Working as a team
When Patrick Poirier, Marie’s long term associate, decided to move to Morocco, the designer couldn’t picture herself otherwise than up to her elbows in fabric. One of life’s happy encounters sent Deniz her way and she taught her how to cut and how to sew. A genuine collaboration was born, leading to collections that are more confident and assured, the way Marie wanted. When you ask these two passionate people about their method for working together, they both describe it as “mutual coaching”, working as a team with mutual respect. 16 Rue du Pont Louis-Philippe, 75004 Paris / +33 (0)1 42 74 22 34 www.mariechaumette.com / Mon: 2pm-7pm – Tue-Sat: 11am-7pm – Sun: 1pm-7pm
