While learning the traditional shoemaking techniques with a hundred-year-old master of shoemaking, Fabien Ifirès took lessons to acquire solid skills in the leather work of Saddlery and a know-how worthy of the greatest Luxurious Houses. His mastery of traditional sewing techniques allows him to explore still further the possibilities of the leather, his favorite material.
Passionate about fashion, he created his eponymous label in 2009 with the aim of designing original collections in line with his philosophy of life, profoundly Ethical and Optimistic.
Since then Fabien Ifirès offers very personal collections of jewels completely sewn by hand in his Paris studio, using traditional luxury saddlery techniques; a traditional production that does not use any machine.
The work of the hand and the skill of the craftsman are highlighted in precious and unique collections, considered as pieces of a new jewelry
by international buyers, art galleries and the international press.
We use very High Quality leathers, manufactured by the best French and Italian tanneries. They provide an incredible Refinement, leathers that acquire an amazing patina with time. The other materials are as well luxurious : Precious and semi-precious stones, metal accessories made also in Paris by a company certified « Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant », silk and linen for seams and beeswax for finishing. Fabien pays attention to all the details of the production of each jewel.
Today Fabien Ifirès produces also other fashion accessories like hats, belts and bags in the respect of the same criteria of quality. Thus he helps to perpetuate the ancestral know-how of French craftsmen by adapting them to the making of his original creations.
Fabien Ifirès offers a contemporary vision of leather accessories and a new approach to the saddlery.
