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.»
