Leclaireur, the avant-guarde in fashion and design
In the heart of the Marais, Leclaireur Sévigné – a work of art in itself – is dedicated to the most reknown and talented fashion designers. The space gathers art, technology, Design and Leclaireur’s legendary sense of style in this wildly interactive environment, one of five locations, each unique in its own way.
Leclaireur Sévigné offers an remarkable selection of iconic-fashion-designer pieces, rare items and niche perfumes. Imagined and designed in collaboration with Belgian artist Arne Quinze, Leclaireur is a unique, unforgettable experience. A true testament to Leclaireur’s dedication to Art & Design, illustrated by the opening of the new Los Angeles space in September 2016, LA Residence.
A bright vestibule holding an exceptional array of designer perfumes stirs up sensorial awareness, and beckons the visitor to leave the street behind. Moving into the main space, the visitor enters a unique environment, composed of two tons of recycled wood and 147 video screens. Menswear and womenswear collections are hidden and revealed behind moving walls, constantly blurring the lines between illusion and reality. Leclaireur offers a thoughtful and warm welcome, one which gives time and space to make up your mind, calmly, and comfortably.

One Vision, One Story
Martine & Armand Hadida founded Leclaireur more than 3 decades ago. Since then, Leclaireur has opened several spaces and developed a culture that merges lifestyle, creation, art and design. Today, the Boissy d’Anglas, Champs Elysées, Hérold, Sévigné and Los Angeles stores support designers who bear strong, unusual and rich approaches to their work. Each space, from one location to the other, opens to a different experience.
