FRENCH ACCESSORIES BRAND FAURÉ LE PAGE OPENS FIRST POP-UP AT JOYCE HARBOUR CITY STORE
In continuation of their successful partnership with JOYCE Gentlemen launched at JOYCE Central, Paris-based Fauré Le Page unveils its first ever pop-up shop in the window of JOYCE Harbour City store. The historic project is the latest milestone in the rich and storied past of the French heritage brand.
Founded in 1717, the family-run brand was originally a much sought-after arms maker. So intricate and superior was their craftsmanship, they were commissioned to furnish aristocratic, royal and imperial clientele with arms, ceremonial swords and even forbidden dueling pistols. Their commitment to arming the French Revolutionaries secured their place in French history books. Today the house of Fauré le Page has left firearms behind, progressing from holsters and gun bags to elegant bags and accessories.
This month, the House’s first dedicated space in Asia recreates a scaled down version of their flagship store on Paris’ Rue Cambon. Reminiscent of the interiors of a stately home or aristocratic country retreat, the collection of wax canvas and leather creations is housed in custom-made traditional wooden gun display cabinet.
The brand’s latest offering boasts a playful array of bags, embellished purses, wallets, bag charms and other accessories in the House’s signature colours – all of which are now available exclusively at JOYCE Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
ABOUT FAURÉ LE PAGE
Founded early in the reign of Louis XV, the House of Fauré Le Page earned its spurs as a master gunsmith to kings and princes. Seven generations of the same family each wrote a chapter of its legend.
Excelling in a vast range of trades, their master craftsmen created exceptional pieces for the great and the good of the European courts. Louis XVI’s hunting-pieces and Napoleon’s vermeil saber are just two of the masterworks that today are the pride and joy of the world’s foremost museums.
Fauré Le Page first entered the annals of French history when it defiantly handed out weapons to the revolutionary forces in 1789 and again in 1830.
Writers of the caliber of Balzac, Dumas, Chateaubriand, Pushkin and countless authors, all celebrate the House in their acclaimed novels.
Whether in love or at war, the same qualities lead to victory. True to its motto ‘Armed for seduction’ since 1717, Fauré Le Page offers arms to win any heart.
