Vanessa Seward opens her first London shop in Notting Hill

Continuing her expansion, Vanessa Seward chose London for her first retail location in the UK. Designed by French architect Laurent Deroo, the store features the iconographic elements characteristic of Vanessa Seward: the signature lacquered midnight blue for the façade and walls, natural Sequoia Brown stone and curved brass details. London holds a special place in the designer’s heart, as she spent part of her childhood in the capital. With this new opening, Vanessa Seward speaks directly to the London woman, who remains an inspiration in each of her collections.

The second Vanessa Seward store has opened its doors at 7, boulevard des Filles du Calvaire, in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris. The Laurent Deroo architectural firm was responsible for its design, which continues in the spirit of the first store. Contrasting materials establish an atmosphere that is both modern and refined. Music selected by the composer and producer Bertrand Burgalat brings the final touch.

Opening of the first Vanessa Seward store in Paris

Vanessa Seward has opened her first store at 10, rue d'Alger in the Ist arrondissement of Paris.

Its design was entrusted to the Laurent Deroo Architecte firm. The spirit of this new space is expressed via paradoxical pairings : adorned in stone yet warm, modern while remaining convivial, modest but simultaneously ambitious.

Thus, the ceilings, panelling and fitting rooms in elm wood set off furniture in a veined, South American stone called Sequoia Brown. The light fixtures are in brushed brass, a material that combines with the brand's signature midnight-blue colour in the lacquered steel folding screens. Cushions and hangings are woven in the manner of the Argentine gauchos’ “fajas” sashes, a nod to Vanessa Seward's origins.

The musical selection was specially chosen by her husband, the composer and producer Bertrand Burgalat.

Music and Vanessa Seward

Vanessa Seward wanted a tailor-made soundtrack for the music of her first runway show. So, she commissioned an original song from her husband Bertrand Burgalat. “Vanessa’s Way” is performed by April March, who also wrote the lyrics, as well as rapper Dolos and actress Lola Kirke, who shot to stardom in the movie Gone Girl.

The track leads into the Yuksek remix of “Odissi” by Chassol from his album Indiamore, another production by the label Tricatel.

“Vanessa’s Way” returns in a new version for the finale.

Vanessa Seward's sophisticated denim

The line of high-rise jeans designed by Vanessa Seward immediately gives form to an iconic brand style, highlighting a certain vision of elegance and femininity.

For Vanessa Seward, the waist and hips of women should be accentuated. This is why she decided to precisely adjust the shape of the legs and create a new design, very different from the flared cuts generally used for high-rise jeans. This specific cut lengthens the legs and gives the silhouette a slightly 70s touch of elegance.

Certain elements make the jeans unique: the V topstitched on the back pocket, their perfect length, the quality of their Japanese denim and the iconic link symbol on the waist button.

This same Japanese denim is used in a new way and constructed with tailoring techniques often reserved for jackets, coats and capes. These designs make up the contemporary wardrobe of active women, who wear denim day and night. For the two emblematic jeans models, the Victoire and the Alabama, an embroidery service will also be available in boutiques for customers who wish to have their first name embroidered on the back of their jeans.
