«As a complex art, lingerie never creases to please the eye, but it is the touch of a woman's skin that makes it come whole. »Monsieur le Français.
Monsieur le Français, un French Touch (à) tout.
With an artistic educational background, Monsieur le Français, also known as Nicolas Busnel, started his career in freelance marketing and PR in 1988.
Eighteen years later, in 2006, Nicolas Busnel launches his own brand of lingerie: Maison Close, opening the door to chic and erotic aesthetics.
With the ambition of reconceiving nudity, and allowing women to reinvent themselves in innovative and creative lingerie, Monsieur le Français draws his inspirations in varied universes and influences, and a strong imagery, such as Helmut Newton and Hans Feurer.
From one collection to another, placing lingerie at the heart of a woman’s style and fashion identity, the designer opts for sublime fabrics: chiffon, satin, veils, adorned with cheeky accessories and a careful finish.
Within a few years, Maison Close has become a success. Monsieur le Français is still very much involved in the artistic direction of the brand, designing each collection, a entive to every piece and every detail.
La Cavalière, Music Hall, Villa Satine, and many other declination, all revealing a refined and audacious luxury, and all imbued with an incandescent signature: Monsieur le Français.
