Confection – French Expertise
LAS8 Paris is a fashion house located in the heart of the fashion capital. Each model must be synonymous with prestige and fashioning is an extremely delicate step, in order to ensure an exceptional quality. For this reason, the manufacturing of its collections is made exclusively in France. The natural individuality of each leather hide is celebrated rather than disguised and each garment is designed and made to show case the character of the skin from which it has been crafted. Thus, each piece is hand crafted by highly skilled professionals. All the garments are designed, cut and made in ateliers in Paris. From start to finish, an individual Fashioning is a step performed in constant collaboration with its specialised workshops in which we ensure a continuous quality control. The expertise of these workshops that work with famous fashion houses gives a true meaning to “Made in France”.
Production in the heart of commitments – Leather Selection
To ensure the quality and uniqueness of each piece, LAS8 Paris selects drastically the best leathers and furs in the world. The depth of colour, the touch, the shine and the nobility of each skin, no detail should escape the control of the fashion House in order to use only exclusive skins.

Agreements have been established with breeding farms in order to identify the finest specimens before the treatment of raw hides called the “crust”. Its stingray leathers come from Thailand and are available in three finishes (plain, soft, super soft) and various sizes.
