Le chic français: Clergerie! Robert Clergerie, born in 1934, fell in love with the universe of shoes at Charles Jourdan and founded his own brand in 1981. A pioneer, Robert seeks innovation in simplicity in all his collections. He is passionate about craftsmanship and maintaining savoir-faire. Creative Director David Tourniaire-Beauciel previously worked for Jean-Paul Gaultier and understands both the demands of high fashion and the technical aspects of shoemaking. Clergerie is an authentic French brand that creates handmade shoes with a bohemian, clean aesthetic that is daring yet timeless, with touches of elegance and femininity. Clergerie is daring and unconventional, never cliche or stereotyped.
