She's a passionate individual, there's no doubt, and a real jack of all trades; along with design and architecture, she's just discovered a passion for perfumes and will shortly be revealing her third eau de parfum. What makes Marie Saint Pierre tick? Wewomen met up with this passionately curious designer who contemplates life with style.
Following the huge success of the Holiday 2011 collection, the second collaboration between Marie Saint Pierre and Reitmans is for spring and it's the opportunity to explore new avenues, offer more surprises and satisfy fashion lovers who missed out on the first edition. Spring is set to be colourful, full of life and irresistibly feminine!
Fitting us in to her packed diary, wewomen had the opportunity to discuss materials, passions and creations with the designer, and the reasons behind her collaboration with the Reitmans chain of stores...
"Reitmans was looking for a designer for a collaboration and they approached me," explains the star of sculptural cuts. Reitmans knew exactly what they wanted with Marie Saint Pierre's must-haves, timeless pieces and neutral colours, and for spring, something more feminine.
"For their part, they wanted to maintain exceptional value for money as it forms part of their values. They wanted to offer accessibility to their customers by adding my personal touch, in a finished product," notes Marie Saint Pierre.
