Our inspirations

La Fée Maraboutée invites you to travel ...

Natural Engraving

Nature, at the heart of all debates, continues to inspire creativity.

We were inspired by a ornamental nature as we found it in the work of the British artist William Morris.

Our changing rooms are punctuated by floral patterns and melted tiles.

Mineral Spot

This design is inspired by the way some stones can look under a microscope.

Discover

Cholitas

The colors of this print are inspired by the fabrics woven by the Aymara, and carried by the Climbing Cholitas, adventurers of the Andes who associate them with flowered petticoats, superimpose them in multiple layers to make the ascent of the highest peaks of the Andes.

Discover

Badian

The star anise, a kind of aniseed, inspired the elements of this print. Their highly ornamental treatment refers to the art nouveau style in vogue at the beginning of the 20th century..

Kohana

The source of inspiration is the wallpaper of the Japanese salon in Victor Hugo's house, Place des Vosges in Paris. It reflects a certain idea of Japanese art from a 19th century European perspective. It refers to the story of Marie McKenzie, a Scottish woman who built her life in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century and who became interested in Japanese dress codes, and interpreted them according to her European understanding. This print, an exclusive design by La Fée Maraboutée, was created from our brief by Gwennaëlle Agnès.

Winter Cashmere

In 1889, at the beginning of winter, young Dimitri leaves the East of the Tsar's empire on the back of his little grey horse. He is on his way to St Petersburg where he wishes to plead the cause of these little horses destined for the sad fate of the slaughterhouse. After some extraordinary adventures, they both arrive in St Petersburg, at the Tsar's court. Having covered more than 9,000 kilometres in less than 200 days, this young rider and his horse have achieved an incredible feat of courage and beauty. The icy, snowy landscapes that set the scene throughout the film.

Paisley Kim

This theme is inspired by the unique and extraordinary style of David Bowie and a whole world with him, the London of the 70s and its icons: Marianne Faithfull, Angie, the Rolling Stones and of course Jane Birkin! Like a desire to party, a desire for saturated and deep colours, sprinkled with glitter like the like Aladdin Sane's costume. At La Fée, this winter, sparkling "stardust" is worn with trainers and down jackets. The Prince of Wales is combined with crackled vinyl, and Missoni-style jacquards are also part of the mix.

Sagano

Our wardrobe is punctuated by floral patterns, botanical abstractions, faded checks and stripes. The knits, with their subtle play of stitches, are as soft as the tones of Sarah Moon's polaroid-coloured flowers.

Bloomsbury

This theme takes us back to the famous "Flower Power" years, marked by the iconic figures of pop and rock: Bob Dylan, David Bowie or the Beatles and their famous song "Revolution". John Lennon's words "... You know we all want to change the world..." still echo in our heads. Pop colours, bright and deep, inspired by the symbols of the seventies like our glossy red softened by the flower print.

Edo

This print was designed from an antique kimono unearthed during a trip to Kyoto in 2015. Its pattern was not printed, but woven with very fine, crepe-like threads using the ikat (dyeing the threads before weaving) technique popular in the Kyoto area. This gave it an exceptional depth and vibrant appearance. The graphic designer who created this print created a pattern to which she attached a "weave effect" weft.

Gengis

A wind from the Steppes blows on this "Genghis" wardrobe. And we are obviously thinking of the empire of the mythical emperor Genghis Khan who at the end of the 12th century created the empire that stretches from the Pacific to the Caspian Sea! Our print is inspired by the traditional carpets that, in our imagination, adorned the yurts of these Nomads of the steppes who set out to conquer the world. The exclusive pattern is printed on a polyester crepe veil. The ruffled mini petticoat can be worn with a jacquard jumper made in Italy and combined with the large window pane coat to make sure you are warm enough!

Starlight

L’imprimé Feu d’étoiles fait partie d’une thématique inspirée de la tradition de l’indigo au Japon. Ce sont les feuilles d’indigotier qui, une fois séchées durant de longs mois d’été permettent une teinture solide des tissus. L’artisanat textile japonais est d’une richesse extraordinaire et déploie une multitude de techniques pour travailler cet or bleu !
Le motif « Feu d’étoiles » rappelle les minuscules motifs composées par la technique du shibori, ces nœuds minuscules qui créent des réserves dans le tissu, et forment de petits cercles blancs en résultat final.

Erdene

A wind from the Steppes blows through the "Erdene" print (the origin of the name is one of the oldest Mongolian monasteries "Erdene Zuu"), an ornamental print with saturated colours.
The design is a very free interpretation of the designs of the Persian kilims, the knotted carpets that adorned the monasteries and yurts of the Mongolian steppe peoples. Nous devons le motif à une collaboration avec Craig, graphiste talentueux installé à Brooklyn.

Cherry Blossom

"Hanami, or cherry blossom in spring, is synonymous with folklore, sake banquets under the shade of cherry trees and all sorts of festivities in Japan, and these elements inspired our Cherry Blossom print. The fuchsia, green and white brush strokes give us the unique scent of cherry blossoms. The pattern is printed on a viscose crepe. Les pièces sont travaillées avec des détails smockés. In addition, with the precious collaboration of our knitwear manufacturer in Italy, we have developed a knitwear jacquard for soft jumpers!

Watermirror

The water in Lake Mashu, formed in a volcanic crater on the island of Hokkaido, is said to hold the world record for transparency. We can see up to 20 metres deep with the naked eye. Our "Watermirror" model is inspired by this, and our graphic designers* have created a large ikate pattern in shades of blue like the light reflections in the water of Lake Mashu.
