Portrait of Alexandre Chapellier, Cinabre founder

THE DESIGNER


Franco-Swedish and based in Paris,

Alexandre Chapellier decided at the age of 30 to put an end
to his yuppie career and launch his own luxury brand.
Forever passionate about fashion,
he quit the stock exchange overnight to enter the world of fabric.


Alexandre Chapellier Swedish roots with the family tailors

SWEDEN

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.
