Macon & Lesquoy
Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy, daughters of an antique dealer and an astrophysicist, founded Macon & Lesquoy in 2009. Having met at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle / Les Ateliers, Paris, they worked together designing to brief for clients, but quickly became disenfranchised, wanting to design only what they wanted and for themselves. Macon & Lesquoy was based on the idea of telling stories and making a point of designing something useful made precious. Distorting and democratising the process of embroidery, they bring bold humour and eccentricity to accessories with their hand embroidered badges and pins.
