The Piece Paris

The Paris Room

For 4 years, La Piece has been creating high-end basics with clean lines in its Parisian workshop, aiming to combine comfort and durability.

Made only in France from ecological yarns, the pieces are designed in traditional know-how with innovative materials that respect the environment.

How Socrates got into ethical fashion

Hélène and Ange Bussy-Socrate are teaming up to create a new sportswear label built on ecological foundations.

After 10 years in the fashion and sportswear industry, Ange decides to convert to sustainable and reasonable fashion. When he becomes a young father, and after living in London for a long time, he returns to Paris, his hometown, where a whole conscious fashion ecosystem begins to develop.
To start imagining the first pieces in his Parisian workshop, he asked his wife, a former French athletics champion (4 * 100m).
From this alliance, the La Piece Paris brand was created in 2019. 

Premium materials that respect the environment

La Piece forms partnerships with spinners at the forefront of their specialty whose carbon footprint is reduced to a minimum.

To make the first bonnet from marine waste, La Piece worked with Seaqual and became one of the label’s first French clients. In 2020, the company is selecting Econyl regenerated nylon yarn from fishing nets. More recently, she chose a yarn made from eucalyptus known for its softness and its second skin effect. 

These yarns are then knitted by SMEs that have been established in the region for years. They are leaders in the knitwear market. La Piece's recycled fleece is designed in La Loire; the nylon used for the active range is woven in Lombardy; and the mesh of our Tencel leggings is knitted in the Braga region in northern Portugal.

Like a luxury Parisian house

All the clothes are locally designed, in the La Piece workshop in the bubbling Latin Quarter in Saint Germain des Prés.

The models are designed, modeled and prototyped specifically by the team. These unique pieces are then developed in specialized workshops on a human scale locally in France.
