Maison Lafont celebrates its centenary by highlighting a century
of expertise. Lafont has teamed with Sekimoto to mark the occasion
by creating a unique frame.
Satoshi Sekimoto, Meilleur Ouvrier de France in Haute-Couture embroidery, and Thomas LAFONT, Artistic Director of Maison Lafont, combined their passion and together created an exquisite, embroidered frame.
Based on an Haute Couture concept developed by Thomas
Lafont, Satoshi Sekimoto has crafted onto these original
medium embroidering pearls and embellishments
ornamenting the frame like a dress.
Maison Lafont continues to promote the authenticity of French know-how, and this collaboration allows the brand to extend its mode of expression, this time with an air of Parisian Haute Couture.
Lafont's "OUVRAGE" wins the Jury's Special Prize at Silmo 2023.
