The most famous embroidery house in the world, Maison Lesage has collaborated with the greatest names in the history of fashion, from Madeleine Vionnet, Elsa Schiaparelli, Cristóbal Balenciaga and Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy and, of course, Chanel, which counts Lesage as one of its Métiers d'Art ateliers. Illustrated with specially commissioned photography of Maison Lesage's historic creations and illuminated with texts by Patrick Mauriès, Maison Lesage is both a tribute to exceptional craftsmanship and a journey through 100 years of fashion at its most sumptuous and inventive.
