Cheeky, suave and very Paris are a few way to describe emerging brand Georges Wendell. Designer Pierre Kaczmarek revived the brand, which originally began as a tailoring shop in Le Sentier, Paris’ Garment District, after graduating from his previous project, Afterhomework(Paris).
Like many around the world, Pierre described quarantine as challenging, especially because his creative process is so tied into his brand’s progress. “My brand is very lively, very connected to real life. I love feeling the city around me, spending time with suppliers and manufacturers, it’s a big part of my creative process” the designer said.

Georges Wendell’s authenticity comes from the inspiration Pierre finds in his environment. “I work on Paris stereotypes, I am surrounded by them. Georges Wendell comes from a real culture that exists in real life,” he said.
His fall 2021 collection reflects just that, playing with different patterns and styles that populate the Paris streets. Pierre draws inspiration from casual business men and Parisian retail owners who walk around in their lighter or heavier garments, depending on the weather that day. “Right now it’s getting warmer in Paris and the city is slowly waking up. People are more

Get to Know: Endieu

What’s Endieu? When Chyanne and Chelsey Cantras are asked, the duo responded, “On- dew, we got the quote tattooed ‘en dieu nous croyons’ in French for “In God We Trust.”
They really didn’t know what it would mean until Endieu became its own social phenomenon. “We haven’t touched the surface of our full potential, but we love this crazed process,” the designers said. They described their quarantine as a beauty in disguise. Through a roller coaster of emotions, it allowed them to realize what they needed to do was to slow down and to do the work needed within themselves first. “It’s just extremely bittersweet to feel most creative and zealous about what we have planned for the future when our people until this day experience such trauma. So we are eminently grateful for all we’ve gained through all of this and can’t wait to grow and make a difference one day,” said Chelsey and Chyanne.
In their recent drop, in collaboration with Aimej Jimay, the designers co-created bold colored, fur-felt hide foldovers with vibrant multicolored charms and metallic skulls.

Every detail of Endieu is inspired by the designers everyday activities and their lives. The twins describe their brand as “uncommon, unpredictable and
