Braquenie knows that the classic look from our past is inspiring because it creates an eye towards tradition and style. Those two pillars of taste are what drive Braquenie to revisit and revive some of the classic looks in traditional French design. The word panache, a dash of style and flamboyance, captures the look of Braquenie. It is both a nod to the past, but also a leap into the future. A collection that is at times classic and innovative.
Exquisitely printed calico, an elegant refinement of simple cotton, the Braquenie line offers a range of styles that are noble yet simplistic. The new Jardin D’Hive is a luxurious collection of textures that capture the love of the royal garden in 18th century France. Long forgotten, the Jardin line looks back at the classic French period and creates a line that stretches over the centuries. Exquisite velvets, embroideries, and damasks help bring to life leafy paisleys, flowering bouquets, and intricate geometric patterns. Jardin D’Hive travels back in time and relives the timeless beauty of the past.
Braquenie began in 1824 and found its fame in the Second Empire. Today, it is part of the Pierre Frey House of fabrics. Pierre Frey, family owned, was founded in 1935 and since then has committed itself to producing innovative collections done in the richest and purest French tradition.
