Originally from a textile family in northern France, Marc Antoine Barrois seeks the art of simple luxury without ostentation but assuredly with finesse. After learning patterns, cutting and sewing, he designed his first collections, which he presented in Lille before joining the Dominique Sirop couture house. He then collaborated with Jean-Paul Gaultier at Hermès and Giambattista Valli before realizing that there was a real need for unique, creative and elegant pieces for men thanks to his experience designing a men’s collection at Jitrois.
B683 and Ganymede
Two enigmatic names, fragments of universes belonging to the same galaxy and telling in wakes the inspirations of an artistic encounter between two young creators. One is a perfumer, the other a fashion designer. Quentin Bisch and Marc-Antoine Barrois met in 2015 and immediately created an extraordinary creative partnership. Childhood memories, shared values and the same love for beautiful materials as well as the respect for a certain sobriety have brought them together around the challenge of defining and redefining new and timeless elegance(s). B683 was born in 2016. The name is inspired by the asteroid of the Little Prince by Saint Exupery and by the birth date of the couturier who made it his own imaginary planet. It is a fragrance that blends leather and spice in a subtle, powerful and distinguished refinement. Ganymede was launched in 2019, it is still a leather-based perfume but just like the planet whose name it bears, it is a new elegance, which is fresh and mineral, just as timeless.
