P. Le Moult



Eugène Le Moult lived an extraordinary life with adventure and poetry. He was the world’s No1. butterfly-hunter at a time when butterfly collecting was de rigueur for gentlemen of class. His taste in clothes and acquired taste for made-to-measure nightwear was optimistically embraced by the whole family and today these pieces have been released by Eugène’s great grand-daughter Praline Le Moult.






Graduate of both Central-Saints Martins and the Ècole des Beaux Arts de Paris, as well as being winner of LVMH Arts, P.Le Moult inherited Eugène’s clothes, leading to inspiration for several nightwear collections – all referring to different episodes in the life of Eugéne Le Moult, the great butterfly hunter.















«People  think  that  hunting  butterflies  is  a  symbol  of  cute  nonchalance.  In  fact  it's  a  sport,  and  even  one  of  the  hardest.  In  France  this  would  mean  constant  walking,  climbing,  sprinting  or  long-distance  running.  In  the  tropics,  it's  the  same  thing,  plus  the  threat  of  wild  animals.»
          
- Eugène Le Moult  in  Paris  Match  no.314  2nd  April  1955
