Just the mention of the name Braquenié is enough to make us travel back in time. After having extolled the beauty of the 18th century, we invite you to return to the origin of Braquenié. Founded in 1824, this house acquired its fame under the Second Empire, a period which lends its name to this specific, decorative style. Long ignored and decried as a pastiche of previous styles, we felt the fundamental need to rediscover the style and demonstrate its richness and originality. The “Jardin d’hiver” collection is a sumptuous composition of palm leaf paisleys, luxuriant bouquets and small geometric patterns, showcased through jacquards, velvets, damasks and embroideries.View the range on the braquenié website.
Braquenie have once again explored the archives for this collection named “Mademoiselle Celestine”. The French 18th Century remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration for lovers of all things beautiful. This collection, which comprises embroideries, prints, jacquards and stripes, revisits Braquenie’s emblematic “household” fabrics while also giving birth to previously unedited motifs. Jane Austen, Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Charlotte Brontë influence the romantic and feminine colours, evoking the muted ambiance of the boudoirs of the time.View the range on the braquenié website.
