Preciously Paris clutches12.28.16
Preciously Paris is a line of luxurious clutch bags that combine both comtemporary art and vibrant couture. Carole Tessier, the talented interior designer behind the fun line, simply wore her homemade jeans to an exclusive party at Art Basel in Miami. Collectors immediately showed interest. Right then and there, Preciously Paris was born.
After the success of her homemade jeans constructed of whimsical messages and cartoon imagery, Tessier applied her knowledge of textiles to her next project: the clutch. Each clutch is made of different pieces globally, with embroideries in Paris, leather and velvet from French couture suppliers, denim from Japan, silk satin from Italy, and finished with a perfectly crafted luxurious package. Her creations are limited editions of 38, a number that Tessier believed was just right.
Tessier finds her inspiration from Damien Hirst, a friend of Tessier’s, who is an English artist, entrepreneur, and art collector. Tessier has also collaborated with Toxic, an American street artist, who assisted Tessier in spray-painting the leather clutches in the collection.
Tessier is a mother of six girls and resides in Paris. Tessier met her husband, Remi Tessier, a designer of luxury yachts and homes, while applying for a position at his design agency. She plans to continue using art to move her in the direction of the future for her brand.
