Chapter 1

In the beginning

Photo des soeurs Evelyne Chetrite et Judith Milgrom

SMCP embodies the story of a Group built by the power of passion and entrepreneurship.

Deux sœurs, Evelyne Chetrite et Judith Milgrom, partagent une passion pour la mode et veulent accompagner les femmes dans leur quotidien. Elles réalisent avec Sandro et Maje, des créations dans l’air du temps et de qualité. Très vite, les Marques s’installent dans l’esprit des clientes charmées.

Sandro habille aussi les hommes avec la griffe créative d’Ilan Chetrite. Claudie Pierlot confie sa maison éponyme aux sœurs entrepreneuses ; son esprit souffle encore aujourd’hui. Dans les studios parisiens, les fondateurs et leurs équipes artistiques imaginent des pièces uniques, de la maquette à la conception, qui traduisent une histoire singulière.

Evelyne Chetrite

Evelyne Chetrite embarked on the Sandro adventure alongside Didier Chetrite. The first boutique would be opened 20 years later in the heart of the Marais, rue Vieille-du-Temple. Success was confirmed. Her vision of femininity is the bedrock of her creation, favouring her preferred style of expression, the masculine-feminine look, with an undeniably Parisian touch.

Claudie Pierlot, la créatrice de l’œuvre

Claudie Pierlot did not find inspiration in the fashion of the 80s, which considered femininity with a theatrical sophistication. She aspired to offer fashion that was both elegant and comfortable for women like her, to enhance without transforming or going over the top: in short, a balanced stylistic proposal.

She created fashion in her image, drawing on the bourgeois codes, but without ostentation, staying on trend but without becoming a fashion victim. A proposal that really considered women and Parisian women, for whom she created an elegant, but slightly relaxed, silhouette.

Claudie Pierlot, l’incontournable griffe parisienne,

A l’époque où Claudie Pierlot lance sa Marque éponyme, le sens du décalage et du mix du vestiaire de tous les jours au féminin n’existe pas. Claudie Pierlot affirmait modestement que son vestiaire était pensé pour la vie courante, et que sa mode était simplement adaptée pour être portée dans la rue du matin jusqu’au soir.

If her desire was to offer an everyday wardrobe, it was actually simply blended with her personal creative touch.

A well-recognised move, where she dared to combine the essentials of the world of luxury with much cheaper pieces.

Judith Milgrom

Early on, Judith knew she wanted to dress women and build her own stylistic language. She founded the Maje House in 1998 with the desire to offer a brand to active women who live several lives in one day. She was continuing the memory of the family workshop she knew as a child

Fashion according to Judith is organic, like the wind, the sun, the sea ... it is not mastered or controlled. It is lived out.

Maje, l’élégance naturelle, une Marque d’ici & d’ailleurs

Silk in winter, lace, colors, deliberately not too much black. Judith wishes to offer a dream in the urban world. She makes difference a strong element of Maje’s identity. She is targeting an independent woman who knows what she likes. Judith makes it a point of honor to defend respect and a certain natural elegance. Here, to celebrate the Parisian origins of Maje, and elsewhere, to pay homage to the distant origins of Judith.

Ilan Chetrite

Ilan Chetrite, son of the founders of the Paris label Sandro, likes to describe the Label as a brother. He focused on design in 2007 and launched Sandro Homme, with his vision of men's fashion.

Today, Ilan perpetuates the family stylistic signature through his collections, each one set in a personal universe which he likes to reinvent each season

2009

Acquisition of the Claudie Pierlot Brand

In 2009, the Claudie Pierlot brand joined the group which, the following year, would become SMCP, with the meeting of the three brands: Sandro, Maje and Claudie Pierlot.

The Brand was entrusted to the two sisters as Claudie Pierlot was suffering from cancer. Just three months later, the designer died, at the age of 61. Claudie Pierlot leaves the future SMCP Group a unique gift, a Label with a real soul created by an extraordinary woman.

Vanessa Pierrat continue l’histoire de Claudie Pierlot

In 2006, Vanessa began working for Sandro as a stylist alongside Evelyne Chetrite. Five years later, she took over the Claudie Pierlot’s artistic direction, safeguarding the heritage of the House and bringing a preppy edge with an offbeat touch. She has a passion for street fashion, she wants clothes to be worn, really.

Simple, perpetual, without beginning or end, symbol of perfection and harmony, it embodies Claudie's timelessness perfectly.

An iconic piece for the day and forever.

The Claudie Pierlot concept boutique evolves and takes on the codes of a Parisian apartment

The common thread running through Claudie Pierlot is Paris… Thus, when, in 2017, teams were working on the concept of the boutiques, it was natural that the interior of a Paris apartment on the Left Bank came to mind. A snapshot of its identity: sober, warm and welcoming. The navy storefront, the parquet floor, the mouldings so typical of Haussmann aesthetics, the brass racks, the velvet curtains and the armchair; all these elements set the scene and enhance the collections. Today, all boutiques are developed according to this concept.
