Founded in 2009, Amélie Pichard’s Paris-based accessories collection is a material projection of her influences and muses. Deviating from style conventions expected from Parisian brands, Pichard’s creations are fantastical, adventurous, and ripe with humor. Under the tutelage of one of the last female shoemakers in Paris, Pichard developed her knowledge of the craft. Venturing into footwear design led to the realization of a lifelong dream, where Pichard collaborated with her longtime muse Pamela Anderson for a vegan shoe collection. While the designer finds inspiration in vintage French aesthetics, the spirit of Americana is also present in her pieces. The results are a hybrid of French elegance and worldly whimsy that still lends room for contrast.
