A unique day at Château Prieuré Marquet / Une journée peu ordinaire au Château Prieuré Marquet

Article published last year in May 2019

On Saturday 11th May 2019, a very unique day took place at Château Prieuré Marquet in Saint-Martin-du-Bois (33190), not far from Saint-Emilion… Follow me for a guided tour of this beautiful wine property and all the unique events I attended.

The Château : main door

Events all day long : Starting with a catwalk of Petrusse silk creations.

The House of Petrusse makes stoles and headscarves using a range of fabrics, patterns, colours and designs that permit the founder Petrusse to communicate her artistic vision and the emotions she wishes to transmit so that anyone and everyone can wear her art with style. Our aim? For customers to wear a unique and stylish stole or silk scarf that transmits certain values and an element of history as well as being an unpretentious luxury item with a hint of poetry that incorporates a humanist artisanal heritage that respects Art and ancestral savoir-faire.

Les étoles Pétrusse sont des oeuvres d’art de matières, motifs et couleurs différents, finalisées par les doigts de fée des talentueuses couturières de la Maison. Aujourd’hui la marque Bordelaise est présente à travers le monde. En France elle est chez plus de 300 revendeurs aux Galeries Lafayette, dans tous les Printemps et aux Aéroports de Paris. Siège social et Ateliers : Château Mauriac, près de Bordeaux (3 Chemin de Cantau – 33210 Langon)
Boutiques en centre ville à Bordeaux : 41 rue des Remparts / 8 Allée de Tourny

His association with houses in Paris and London such as Pierre Balmain, Hermès, Lulu Guiness, Anoushka Hempel initially revealed in him a passion for fashion illustration soon followed by paintings.
