Marc-Antoine Barrois is a French couturier born from a northern French family who had made name for themselves in the textile industry. From a very early age he was fascinated by his grandfather’s elegance that drove him to seek the art of simple luxury without ostentation but assuredly with finesse. After learning patterns, cutting and sewing as he was studying textile engineering, he designed his first collection in Lille in 2006.
This success then led Marc-Antoine Barrois to work with Dominique Sirop, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jean-Claude Jitrois before creating his own Maison de Couture for men. Offering men what women have already in Haute Couture, Marc-Antoine Barrois designs unique suits, tuxedos and jackets for confidential clients seeking exclusivity.
Ten years after commencing Haute Couture, French couturier, Marc-Antoine Barrois is launching his first perfume.
Building on the timeless and charismatic elegance of his mentors, with this perfume he reveals his most beautiful souvenirs as well as his world of contemporary designs. Ultimately, B683 is an invitation to explore… to travel on his planet where collections of unique bespoke pieces collections, jewels and accessories meet a genius symbiosis of poetry and dreams with arts and crafts.
Subtly combining refined woody essences, sensual spicy notes and the powerful smell of leather, avant-garde perfumer Quentin Bisch is signing a perfume both heady and sober modelled on the fantasy universe of the designer.
