Marianne Lang is an artist from Vienna. Her work is strongly inspired by the vegetal and animal world. Hedera Helix, a tree liane from the tropical areas, is one of the rare species having survived the ice age. At the end of the Fall, as flowers fold down, Hedera Helix blooms from October to November, giving pollen to the bees. Its fruits feed many birds species and enable them to survive during February. Its persistent leaves give them the best shelter. Extremely resistant, this ivy lasts more than 100 years.
The Hedera Helix Collection is a fantastic allegory of the strength, resistance and protection of the livings. The wild proliferation of this liane, in every crack, every gap, tells us about survival, about a vegetal strength spreading everywhere. Happy are the ones having an ivy at home, happy are the ones having a Clairefontaine Notebook at home.
This set of golden chopsticks is inscribed on geometric shapes, evoking infinity, reflection, abstraction, also hindsight and logic.
On the different elements of this range, there are also exotic fruits/pineapple lightly sketched, with sharp, clear features, as well as squares suggesting movement, speed and lucidity. Light blue, pastel pink and mouse grey remain the only touches of colour used that irresistibly evoke feminine softness and tenderness. On a white background, bursting with purity, against the pink, the blue spreads, bursts out, radiates and makes the gold shine.
Women have always inspired artists...
Photographs are superimposed onto drawings, and women aresuperimposed over flowers, in a way that's reminiscent of Pop Art In Roman mythology, Egeria was the nymph of springs, and it's this allusion to water and to the female principle, that embodies the spirit of Clairefontaine.
Always the same woman, with the elegant grace of the 50s, always the same face, which is vague and mysterious but also incredibly present. Sometimes we see only the mouth, the neck, the cleavage, and yet all the journals burst, radiate, surrounded by an organic light. Boldly, Clairefontaine allows us to experience this secret feminine influence without sounds...
With insolence, the deep colours mauve and indigo provoke and contrast with bright colours lemon and fuchsia.
The Egerie collection is stylish and powerful.
The Aïda collection takes place under an Oriental influence. Aïda, an Arabic name meaning "reward, forgiveness", is also one of the most grandiose operas by Verdi with an Egyptian flavour.

The embossed motif takes up the mosaic, the mosaic retraces the direction of dreaming and escape.
The embroidered kits are finished in black and purple with powdery highlights.
The Aïda collection, a decor from the Arabian Nights that can be taken everywhere.

|Julie Schalit is the author and designer of this collection. Today she creates striking designs under the guise of Suzie-Q «One of the things that represents my style is my use of strong vivid colours outlined in black. I work with pencils and ink and my designs often incorporate flowers. As a unique and original way to present my work, I superimpose my designs onto classic images of iconic figures such as Marilyn Monroe & Frank Sinatra.
