LES COULEURS D'ÉPICE PARIS
When Scandinavian rigor meets Indian poetry
"The colour palette is closely linked to our native Denmark," says Bess Nielsen, who with designer Jan Machenhauer co-founded Epice Paris. "Here, the colours vibrate in a unique way, most likely because of our heavy skies and long, dark winters," she continues. These subtle shades then draw their inspiration from the works of Michael Peter Ancher and from the streets of Copenhagen - where the use of colour seems to be both a balance and an important source of energy. The palette then comes alive to the rhythm of the Indian weavers in a delightful happenstance that makes every stole wonderfully unique.
La Maison Epice Paris, c’est par essence, l’art infini de la couleur. Le tout dans des tonalités aussi vibrantes que délicates. Ces nuances singulières naissent au sein du studio de création à Copenhague en collaboration avec Nina Hart. Véritable maître coloriste, elle crée et peint chaque saison pour Epice, la nouvelle palette de couleurs à l’aquarelle. Une fois définies, ces nuances sont ensuite réalisées par nos artisans en Inde, grâce à un savoir-faire aussi expert qu’intuitif ; les pates sont d’abord brunes, puis prennent leurs couleurs après traitement.
The infinite art of colour in harmony with the soul and nature
In essence, Epice Paris is the infinite art of colour. All in tones as vibrant as they are delicate. These unique hues are created in the Copenhagen design studio in collaboration with Nina Hart. A true master of colour, each season she creates and paints Epice’s new palette in watercolours. Once settled, the colours are then realized by our craftsmen in India, thanks to a know-how that is as expert as it is intuitive; the pastes start out brown, but then take on their true colours after treatment.
Un univers de contrastes
This universe of contrasts offers key elements that evoke the colours of a fantastic garden with a thousand and one bouquets of flowers, the gourmet tones of seasonal and citrus fruits, or repeated geometric lines that are never quite the same when they energetically vibrate with all their vividness.
Universe of contrasts
This universe of contrasts offers key elements that evoke the colours of a fantastic garden with a thousand and one bouquets of flowers, the gourmet tones of seasonal and citrus fruits, or repeated geometric lines that are never quite the same when they energetically vibrate with all their vividness. These tones also tell passionate stories of the natural blue of the sky and the deep blue of the sea, the elusive colour of the wind coming from the north, the green of the high grass trodden down in summer, and the penetrating yellow of the sun... Each creation seems to describe a luminous scene with careful attention to detail – like the paintings of the masters. And finally, Epice Paris evokes an extraordinary journey that abounds in vibrant and precious fabrics that we never tire of wearing. Skilfully coloured, they create a touch of magic.
