For 4 years, La Espace 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 using traditional know-how with innovative and environmentally friendly materials.
Hélène and Ange Bussy-Socrate are joining forces to create a new sportswear label built on ecological foundations.
After 10 years in the fashion and sportswear industry, Ange decided to convert to sustainable and reasonable fashion. When he became a young father, and after having lived for a long time in London, he returned to Paris, his hometown, where a whole ecosystem of conscious fashion began to develop.
To start imagining the first pieces in his Parisian workshop, he asked his wife, former French athletics champion (4*100m).
From this alliance, the La Pcs Paris brand was created in 2019.
All the clothes are designed locally, in the La Pcs workshop in the bustling 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 and human-sized workshops locally in France.
La Pcs forms partnerships with spinners at the forefront of their specialty whose carbon footprint is reduced to a minimum.
To make the first hat from marine waste, La Pcs works with Seaqual and becomes one of the label's first French customers. In 2020, the company selects Econyl yarn regenerated in nylon from fishing nets. More recently, she chose a eucalyptus-based yarn known for its softness and second-skin effect.
These yarns are then knitted by SMEs that have been established in the area for years. They are leaders in the knitwear market. The recycled fleece of La Espace 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.
