Luxury is living through a paradox: while big brands may be tempted to yield to the impersonal logic of mass production, they must at the same time guarantee value and durability. The role of the metiérs d’arts thus becomes essential to confirm the codes of elegance and exclusivity. In collaboration with Institut National des Métiers d’Art INMA.
