Maxime Simoëns, Maison Paule Ka's Artistic Director
A graduate of the prestigious École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne and École des Arts Décoratifs, Maxime Simoëns presented his first designs at the Hyères International Fashion Festival in 2009. In October of that same year, he showed his first collection at Paris Fashion Week. A few short years later in 2015, he decided to create a men’s fashion line, M.X Paris, which he continues to design for today.
Maxime Simoëns: ‘Like Serge Cajfinger, I'm from Lille. So, I've been familiar with PAULE KA for a long time. What drew me to the identity of this fashion house was that it provided me with an opportunity to design a wardrobe for the woman of today—who is both diverse and multifaceted—that truly reflects her complexity. A wardrobe for a woman who not only works, but who also seeks glamour and elegance. I was also drawn to PAULE KA’s atelier in the heart of Paris, which for so long now has been designing pieces with the same savoir-faire and creativity of the great fashion houses, but at affordable prices.’
