After having studied Visual Arts at the Ecal in Switzerland, Claire de Quénetain followed her artistic career at the Royal College of Art in London, in printed textiles. During her studies, Claire developed a passion for gardens from which a personal painting and drawing expression was born. She paints with spontaneity to capture the generosity of the shapes, colors and movements of nature. She has now created her own brand of upholstery and made mural paintings (clairedequenetain.com).

Opened in 1835, Parisian palace Le Meurice makes tribute to the Age of Enlightenment, which preceded it, with decorations inspired by the splendor of Versailles.
The indoor shoe created for the Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria, inspires the “slippers” style, improved with a modern twist by Chatelles. Both Prince Albert and Queen Victoria used to stay at Le Meurice during state visits. Hence Le Meurice was called the palace des rois.
Since both Chatelles and Le Meurice draw their inspirations from a wealth of history, they do not have less spirit and boldness that ties them from long time ago. At Le Meurice, this spirit is revealed by the many references made to Salvador Dali, who was a faithful host for over thirty years. And though Chatelles collections offer simple and elegant styles, they also show a certain extravagance! Francois du Chastel also needed to be bold when he decided to create, in 2012, his own brand of slippers while stilettos and ballerinas ruled the world of fashion.
François reinvinted the timeless and elegant "Green Meurice" colour code of Le Meurice to create a delicate leather slippers with bronze pipping matching the spirit of the first Parisian palace.
To celebrate this collaboration, Cédric Grolet, the Chef Pâtissier of Le Meurice and world acclaimed superstar created 2 delicious éclairs with Chatelles colours.
