About

Les Mailles de Paris

J'ai grandi dans le sud de la France avant de m'installer à Paris pour mes études. Mon grand-père m'a appris à tricoter à l'aiguille lorsque j'étais petite, mais je trouvais ça trop lent ! C'est lors de mes études aux Arts Déco de Paris que j'ai découvert la machine à tricoter. Son étrangeté et sa technicité m'ont très vite attiré.
Lorsque j'ai terminé mes études, j'ai travaillé quelques années en bureau de style avant de revenir à ma première passion, la maille. J'ai acheté ma propre machine et j'ai commencé à tricoter mes premiers modèles. De là est née Les Mailles de Paris : des modèles tricotés main en plein coeur de la capitale.

Je travaille dans mon atelier parisien qui se trouve accessoirement aussi être mon appartement. Je sélectionne dans un premier temps les matières que je travaille ensuite sur machine à tricoter. Je fais de nombreux tests et petits essais avec des techniques différentes afin de m'approcher au plus juste de ce que j'ai imaginé. La phase de recherche est la plus importante, c'est elle qui donne la ligne directive à mes collections. Je travaille dans le détail du point et de la matière. Se sont les matières qui influences mes formes.

La notion de fait-main est très importante pour moi car elle signifie la transmission d'un savoir faire artisanal. De nos jours tout est industrialisé et l'on ne sait plus travailler avec nos mains.

Mes inspirations proviennent à la fois de partout et du détail, cela peut-être une oeuvre d'art, une vieille photo, un film, une époque, un bouquin qui traite des fonds marins.. L'inspiration est partout, il faut savoir être curieux des choses qui nous entourent.

J'ai de multiples influences, dans tous les arts plastiques et visuels d'une façon générale. Je suis particulièrement touchée par les créateurs émergent qui rompent avec les codes esthétiques traditionnels comme les créateurs Gareth Pugh et Rick Owens, même si mon esthétique est très loin de la leurs.

french designer :
Clara Apolit dreamt up a cloth revealing its technical richness and takes great care of the material, being convinced that it influences the shape.
It is during her studies in the famous “Arts Déco” school in Paris that she was initiated to the knitting stitch techniques.
The experience acquired over the last years, after graduating in 2010, gave her the necessary skills to create her first collection.
Her stitches, realised on a manual machine, allow for creativity focused on the permanent search of stitching techniques combined with uncluttered design.
Les mailles de Paris announce a feminine figure, sensual, harmonious and rare.
