GAËLLE CONSTANTINI, FRIEND OF THE HOUSE
In 2010, when Gaëlle Constantini made the bet to create her own brand of female ready-to-wear under the prism of eco-responsibility, the universe of ethical clothing still had the label of a niche sector and was more praised by green activists than by the trendy sphere.
It took the stylist many sacrifices to prove that a brand could be successful while respecting the planet. With her unwavering will, Gaëlle never stopped moving around the "fast-fashion" codes by competing in inventiveness and creativity. From upcycling vintage sweaters to the design of pieces from the curtains of the Senate, Gaëlle will stop at nothing to show that a new way of creating and consuming is not only possible but saving.

The best way also to create a bridge between disadvantaged social circles and a fashion that they did not have A social approach that La Maison De la Maille also takes to heart and which it supports by entrusting the production of its cotton bags to Kalista, an establishment providing assistance through work that supports people with disabilities.
GAËLLE CONSTANTINI AND LA MAISON DE LA MAILLE.
Thanks to their common liking for quality and traceability, a nice story was born between the designer and La Maison de la Maille. Partners on several events, it was natural for the two brands to unite their universes and to communicate together on the possibility to make luxury products, without ever losing sight of today's issues; linked to the environment, but also linked to quality. With the same fervour, La Maison de la Maille joins Gaëlle in its desire to favour noble materials, to not neglect working conditions and to make every effort to respect the environment and animals as much as possible. A philosophy shared by the two brands and which should soon give birth to new and pretty projects ...
