Denovembre

Very attached to the notion of skill, Judith develops high-end accessories with a delicate finish.

Who are you?

Judith, designer behind the brand denovembre.

I worked firstly as an embroidery stylist for both Haute Couture and luxury ready-to-wear brands, most notably for La Maison Lesage. Before leaving India, I was taught dyeing techniques by a craftsman from Gujarat.

Could you describe your creative universe to us?

Graphic, delicate, where handmade crafts meet the spotlight: my collections are handcrafted between my workshop in Paris and the Gujarat in India.

 

What are your sources of inspiration?

Textile and paper analogies, fabrics and minerals, flecked objects, perhaps an object with a geographical map like a shell. An artistic work, or a facade...

 

How did you come to create your pieces?

Denovembre is linked to a decisive meetingwith Jabbar, the dye craftsman with whom I've worked since the start.

I am very attached to my collaborators, who are all independent craftsmen with particular skills. I travel two or three times per year to India to make my scarves. For the last two seasons I have collaborated with my sister Elsa, a custome maker, to create the accessories in my workshop in Paris: jewellery, butterfly bows (in the silk of the scarves), and then small crochet bags in metallic braids.

 

Can you tell us a little about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?

I am delighted to start a collaboration with MonDéfilé, which seems to be a concept which provides full support to young designers.

 

If you could be a garment or an accessory, what would you be?

A denovembre marble headscarf.

"A textiles laboratory, a traveller's workshop, "de novembre" offers you entirely handmade fashion accessories."
