D’ESTRËE was created in 2015. Géraldine Guyot, the designer of the brand, obtained her speciality in Arts in Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London. As soon as she returns to Paris, she launched D’ESTRËE. Shortly after, Laetitia Lumbroso joined her as business partner.
Géraldine has always been fascinated by accessories : designing hats was the first step in her creative journey. After entering the leather goods arena, she now launches a jewelry line.
Present today in the most famous luxury boutiques in the world, D’ESTRËE highlights French expertise from west to east.
We are convinced that the Accessory allows all eccentricities, to express his personality, to assert himself, and to vary according to his mood.
The Accessory holds real strength, relentless efficiency; the Accessory becomes an Art Object.
D’ESTRËE loves artists. Each collection of hats and bags bears the name of a performer, photographer, painter, sculptor or designer who has played a role in shaping the history of art.
“It’s the brand’s DNA. I grew up surrounded by art catalogues, and was lucky enough to experience the sensation of discovering museums and galleries around the world,” explains Géraldine Guyot. I developed a certain sense of color combinations and assemblages. Today, art holds a powerful place in my life and therefore is the core of D’ESTRËE. .” – Géraldine
