About us

Ivre de Soie, who is behind?
“Ivre de soie" is the baby of a young creator born in France, with origins from Sweden and the Indian Ocean, who lived in Europe, Africa and Asia, and who defines herself as a citizen of the world.
Always attracted by scarves and stoles, this anti-conformist mind, has grown up within various cultures, and as long as she can remember it, she has always seen women wearing scarves, stoles, shawls and squares all over the world.
Her main source of inspiration are the actresses and fashion icons of the sixties, like Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn or Brigitte Bardot who embodied elegance and grace, each in their own way. And to this is added a passion for twisting dress codes, mixing genres and styles to always create uniqueness and originality.

Her perception of the silk square
"A unique accessory offering infinite possibilities and matches.
It’s the ultimate feminine accessory (but not exclusive to women!).
Through time, all the most famous icons have worn it. It sublimates everything in subtlety. If I had to choose one single accessory to possess, it would be the silk carré.
Tied in the hair, around the neck, on the shoulders, around the waist, around the wrist, as a scarf, as a belt on a pair of jeans, even in a bundle ... when you look at it more closely it can replace almost all the other accessories (although it can’t show you the time!)."
Her desire
Twist the silk square codes, to better anchor it in our time.
Mix genres and styles to make it more original.
Make it more accessible: In terms of drawing, with more diverse and more modern motifs.
In terms of size, to cover all possible and imaginable ways of wearing it.
In terms of affordability, while ensuring an excellent quality: for fans of diversity and lovers of mixing genres, making it more affordable also means allowing to tune it infinitely by owning several pieces. Like a handbag or a pair of shoes, the modern era allows us to blend, match, tune: CREATE in short, one’s own style, according to their desires.
"I probably have as many scarves and squares as shoes and handbags in my wardrobe. "
Make it more accessible? Yes but also exclusive! By limiting the number of pieces produced. For it to remain a personal accessory..
The silk carré, a bit of history
Timeless, the silk square (silk carré) has adorned women for centuries. Grace Kelly, Jacky O, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot ... the most legendary icons all succumbed to the charm of this ultimate fashion accessory. Symbol of elegance, refinement and class, from its French origins to modern adaptations, the silk square never ceases to surprise us, with endless ways of wearing it.
It can transform the simplest outfit into a chic, glamorous, classic, bcbg, rockabilly, bohemian, romantic look depending on your mood at the moment! There are so many different ways to decline it, which makes it the ultimate feminine accessory.
Infinite source of inspiration, it has been worn by our mothers, grandmothers and their mothers before them. Although a symbol of absolute femininity, it can be as flexible as original, when wrapped around the handle of a handbag, knotted around the wrist or slipped into the pocket of your man's costume.
Whether you wear it as Grace Kelly, wisely knotted under the chin or tightly knotted around the neck, tied around the waist, knotted in the hair, or carelessly laid on the shoulders to accompany a boyfriend look. Generations and fashions succeed each other, but the silk square remains intact.
Where does silk come from?
There is a legend about the discovery of silk, which reports that a cocoon of silkworms would have fallen into the tea cup of a young Chinese empress in the XXVIIth century BC.
In seeking to remove the cocoon, the young Empress would have caught a piece of thread, which she started to unwind. Enchanted by the brilliance of the thread, she would have had the idea of weaving it.
Since then, the young woman is considered in Chinese mythology as the "Silk goddess". Fable or reality, for sure historical evidence shows that in the 3rd century, BC. Chinese army men were the first to wear silk ties. Qin Shi Huang, China first emperor, and his terracotta soldiers all wore silk scarves as a symbol of their military rank.
Although silk was spread rapidly throughout Eurasia, its production remained for three millennia exclusive to China, the cradle of silk.
The technique of producing this precious fabric was indeed kept secret until 560.
