Matières à réflexion is the association of two personalities and universes.
Laetitia (which means Joy in Italian) Azpiroz was born in Paris and grew up in the 20th, a popular and Arty district. Her mother was an abstract painter. After Arts studies, she launched her own clothes and Jewelry collections. Then she joined the Morgan Prêt-à-porter brand as a design coordinator, close to the company’s founders. In 2001, she decided to launch her own signature, strongly influenced by her background and abstract painting.
Cyrille Railliet grew up in many different cities, as Brussels, London and New York. Then he moved to Paris to study at ESSEC, a top ranked business school. After moving to New York, Madrid and London for his job, he eventually settled down in Paris to start his own business. Cyrille is widely inspired by his trips… Matières à réflexion was created after Cyrille and Laetitia one year trip in Africa.
Matières à réflexion items are unique because many of them are made from upcycled vintage leather and are a 100% handcrafted in Paris. Since 2002, all their leather goods have been designed and made in their Haut-Marais atelier. They have two concept stores in Paris.
