Entrepreneur, creator, and DJ, Cinabre founder Alexandre Chapellier loves blends.
A Franco-Swede who calls Paris home, Alexandre created Cinabre because he wanted a luxury brand that wouldn’t take itself too seriously. He strives to infuse fashion with humour and work with fun. Because those really are the best nourishment over time. That’s a lesson learned from his first professional incarnation, travelling the globe and meeting up with dynamic entrepreneurs on behalf of an investment fund.
Vintage uniform hunter. Robot collector. Avid traveller of American roads. Science-fiction dreamer. All-night mixer… A man of many interests, Alexandre thrives on curiosity and imbues his collections with his discoveries.
Keeping it in the family, this was a step that is very much back to his family roots, as his Swedish great-uncle was a renowned tailor in the small town of Filipstad. Alexandre still uses his great-uncle’s big scissors and tape measure.
