Immersed during her childhood in the Arts - she is the grand-niece of famous artist Jean Cocteau – Charlotte grew up next her grand-mother, a Coco Chanel model, admiring her her simple yet sophisticated outfits paired with accessories, such as several strands of pearls.
Born and raised in a Parisian bourgeois family, she has developed an acute sense of elegance and “chic Parisien”.
Charlotte, as a former lawyer, gained a global experience advising luxury brands and start-ups in the French fashion industry, dreaming of creating her own fashion brand. She loved her work but she felt that she could achieve more if she puts her energy into another adventure. Her natural desire to embrace life to the fullest, took her to travel across the world. An unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2011 motivated her to reflect on her life and experiences in the corporate world.
It was time for a change. She joined Makaron and the first collection of fashion accessories for multi-tasking women is launched: a palette of contemporary pouches, clutches, totes, splash resistant bags all in a warm kaleidoscope of colours and patterns. A unique beach accessories Brand is born!
Charlotte finds her inspiration in the magical resources of her multiple travels. When she is designing her collections, her mind is filled with endless summers, seaside villages, unforgettable sunsets, exotic escapes and cheerful images.
Always in the lookout for high quality fabrics and excellent craftsmanship, each collection is made of punchy patterns in rainbow shades proudly displaying the sign of recognition: the zigzag. Each collection is joyful and colored, the way she envisions life. And for Her, Summer is not just a season but a state of mind.
Makaron is a French chic interpretation of beach lifestyle. So step in the intimate world of Makaron where each single piece is a treat for the eye. Life in colors is always a better life.
