Simone Simon was founded by a true Parisienne who landed in Boston. Simone Simon is a research studio that explores the interface between the human body and the outside world, redrawing the lines between fashion and architecture to create constructed garments using a range of new fabrication methods and performative materials.
Simone Simon’s studios are in Boston and Paris, and the clothing is produced in MA. Simone Simon produces out of Lowell’s historical environment, and benefits from Boston/Cambridge & MIT’s innovative edge.
All of our fabrics are also made locally, in Amercia, and France.
How Technologies can create unique, confortable and ethical building blocks for the dynamic woman's wardrobe?
> Our use of 3D CAD, is to visualize and test patterns before actually cutting any fabric. Using technologies as an iterative design process allows us to work on the pattern, the cuts, the thickness of the garment on any body type. We use virtuality space to improve reality.
We are not only proud but also working on the sustainability of our materials and means of production. Considering the process of how a raw fiber is turned into a textile, the working conditions of the people producing the materials and the material's total carbon footprint. Beeing an ethical Fashion Brand is more than just an idea, it's a fight, for a better fashion. Our collections are made for a conscious woman of her time , who wants to wear : stylish & sustainable, ethical & chic clothes.
She who wears Simone Simon embodies the timeless chic parisian spirit. She is elegant. She is free. She is confident. Simone Simon was designed in Paris & Boston for the true modern woman !
Razzle Dazzle Collection "These are no stripes!" "Ce ne sont pas des rayures! "
First collection from Parisian designer and architect Cecile Thieulin, the Razzle Dazzle Collection has France stamped at its heart and within its fabric (classic French jersey). It celebrates the timeless pattern of black and white, and is designed to celebrate shapeliness and femininity through its perfect counterpart, graphic lines and masculinity.
It was inspired by camouflage techniques invented by the navy forces. By using irregular lines and contrasted colors, military designers protected ships from artillery shootings and torpedoes. The use of complex line and stripe structure modified the form of the targeted ship, thus rendering it invisible from its enemies!
Cécile Thieulin has used the same visual techniques, only this time to sublime the woman's silhouette. Dressed in Razzle Dazzle, shapes are erased, camouflaged, only to appear at their best, strongest and sexiest, as the design emphasizes waste, shoulders, bottom and bust.
Our bold black and white stripes accentuate what you want, rather than what you don't. The history of this camouflage technique can be pondered while you turn heads through this designer's embodiment of the chic Parisian spirit.
