Maison Marie Saint Pierre… The Book!


Posted in : Uncategorised on by : Philippe Benoit Comments:

Maison Marie Saint Pierre, en 30 tableaux is the title of the book which will be published this coming April by Éditions Québec Amérique. I find it hard to imagine a sweeter gift to mark my company’s 30 years in the business!

Madeleine Goubau, fashion journalist at Radio-Canada, pitched me the idea back in February of 2015. She wanted to write a book that would invite the readers backstage and let them experience the Maison’s history. Her approach aimed to be human, accessible, and authentic.

The narrative is split into 30 chapters: turning points, anecdotes, moods, feats, and twists of fate. The story, with ambiance and dialogues aplenty, takes place in Montreal, Paris, Merida, New York, and Miami. Written in vivid style, it reads like a series of columns.

The story was put in images by photographer Dominique Malaterre, whose experimental signature bordering on modern art really appeals to me. What a great way to complement the initial idea of a biography in 30 tableaux!

The book will be available in bookstores starting April 5th, just in time for the Salon du livre de Québec. Marking the beginning of Maison Marie Saint Pierre’s 30th anniversary celebrations, the official launch will take place on Tuesday, April 11th, in the evening. More details to come. Looking forward to seeing you there!
