Press Event Launch of Inés Figadero, Alter Concept Store, Shanghai
“Non Seasonable and Timeless attitude”
Introducing Inés Figadero at Alter Concept Store; the Madrid born designer has recently opened her doors to Shanghai with the Alter Concept Store.
I personally think its been quite a long time I havn’t seen something that astonished me in the leather handbags market. Something definitely different, fresh and overwhelming but still going through the rhythm of todays time and needs of restlessness and exaggeration.
“She’s utterly determines to rescue the ancient know-how of haute Spanish leatherwork and jewelry, the art of embroidery and traditional craftsmanship skills of sculptures”
Her collection is created with quality Spanish leather, exotic skins, silk, fine embroidery, sculpted bronze, Swarovski crystals and bronze plates re-enacting the baroque era. Every piece is diligently worked through, where she also combines tradition with modern technology such as 3D designs and shapes in in order to customize the accessories to her bags.
To conclude; a definite applaude to this emerging designer.
Thanks Sam and Casey from Alter PR for the Invite!

Exclusive Interview : Christophe Cervasel Founder of L’Atelier Cologne
Atelier Cologne is the first Maison de Parfum from Paris dedicated only to cologne Absolue. The brand has launched in NY, Paris, Tokyo, HK and has recently arrived in Shanghai through its store opening with Lance Crawford. During the celebration of the opening, founders Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel were present where I also had the opportunity of having an exclusive interview with them discovering the beautiful world of cologne.
1.Why Enter China?
“China is a huge country and huge market for luxury goods, but surprisingly not very developed for perfumes. Most of luxury niche brand perfumes are not in China.
We felt that this situation was not normal, especially given the fact that Chinese have a high level of culture and refinement. And we could see in Galeries Lafayettes in Paris, where a lot of Chinese tourists come, that they loved our brand. So we decided to enter China.”
2. What is the Perception of Cologne to the Chinese Luxury Consumer?
“Cologne means many things to Chinese, some positive and some negative things. For some people, this means fresh and elegant perfume, which is right and our perfume are all very Cologne in this sense. For others, it means not long lasting, low concentration, and finally not a very high end product. Actually they are right also, as Eau de Cologne is usually not very long lasting. But our perfumes are not Eau de Cologne: because of extremely high concentration (between 15% and 20%, more than an Eau de Parfum), they last very long, same as an Eau de Parfum. That’s why we don’t call it Eau de Cologne, but Cologne Absolue. In conclusion, Cologne Absolue is a reinvention of Cologne, keeping the good side of more traditional Cologne (fresh and elegant) and having the good side of Eau de Parfum (long lasting power).
3. How do you forecast your growth in Shanghai for the next 2 years?
“We really like to remain a niche brand, means we should not be everywhere and available in many point of sales. But at the same time, we want to follow our customers, and based on the first sales results at Lane Crawford Shanghai, and in HK, growth is very promising and we feel very positive.
We already decided to open in Beijing 2 weeks ago and we will open a counter at Lane Crawford Chengdu in mid January.”
4. How do you plan to target your new clientele in Shanghai? Will the brand be flexible to the local needs and tastes of the Market?
Our clientele is made of people who like really high quality products, and like to have different and not mainstream brands. We want to target these customer by opening stores or corners where we think these customers will look after this kind of products. Lane Crawford is a good example. And of course by talking directly to opinion leaders such as you.
5. Can you give us a brief overview of your future communication plans?
“Our communication plan is mainly based on events and meeting with newspapers, magazines and bloggers such the one we did 2 weeks ago. We think that there is nothing better than to directly meet our customers and opinion leaders compare to do pure advertising. Product quality in itself should then spread the word. That’s why we are niche luxury and not mass products company!”
