Kneedler Fauchère—its origins in a partnership between a French and an American woman—has a long-standing presence at Paris Design Week. The events include the annual Welcome Reception—the beloved first stop for many San Franciscans upon touching down in Paris—and chic presentations hosted by Pierre Frey, Nobilis, Galerie May, and many others.
From Saint Germain des Près to Rue Jacob, presentations by an international contingent of De Sousa’s collections—including Élitis, Timorous Beasties, and C&C Milano—take place throughout the week. One of the most urbane experiences in Paris is crossing the threshold into the glorious Liaigre flagship on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, and each year De Sousa Hughes presents a sparkling soirée.
