Charme fou for Lyon's concept store Bonnesoeurs. Creatives are the sisters and founders, Justine and Camille Bonneville, native to Lubéron. The boutique sells their female prêt-à-porter brand, Bonnesoeurs, as well as coup de foudre around the world, such as Beija Flor rugs, Maileg dolls and Chabi Chic Moroccan ceramics.
Passionate travelers, but above all lovers of Indian culture and fabrics, they take inspiration from this magical world for their creations. Here they find local fabrics and craftsmen who help them in production. Graphic prints come alongside with details in lurex and refined brass bijoux. That's what Camille Bonneville told us.
A collaboration between two sisters, Camille and Justine Bonneville, how was the idea born?
We had the desire to join us on a common project to put our creative energies in the service of an adventure that we have not planned before ... We come from two different pasts, Justine has worked for a long time in music and family business, I worked with children prêt à porter.
I did not want to work alone, Camille wanted to work for herself, for us ... We both have good taste for beautiful things, and I think putting together the skills of both can be even more beautiful!
What can you find in your work+shop?
Small treasures! Today and of other times ... We develop fabric and metal collections, from pillows to stars, from prêt à porter to bijoux. We also work with other brands and creators we love and complete our universe.
What is your ideal client?
Our clients, both men and women, are generally curious people ... who accept to break the mould and to keep pushing the boundaries.
Dresses, bijoux and more: tell me about Bonnesoeurs?
Bonnesoeurs is prêt à porter pour femme, but also accessories and decoration. We mainly use traditional Indian fabrics printed with wooden timbers, ikat fabrics or cotton voile. We travel to India for a long time and take the inspiration between Jaipur and Lyon, two parallel worlds.
We opened the Bonnesoeurs store two years ago, the second La Chapelle store - always in Lyon - a year ago, and the online store is almost ready! We plan to re-invent us every day! The future will tell us the rest!
