Parisian duo Macon & Lesquoy creates handmade embroideries that feature contemporary designs with timeless craftsmanship. With the release of Wes Anderson's latest film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," Parisian design duo Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy were working under their label Macon & Lesquoy.

Together they create pairs of special embroideries like keys belonging to the hotel's concierge and crowns symbolizing Europe before the World Wars. Anderson's story unfolds in an off-the-wall universe, which is one not far from Macon & Lesquoy's, which aims to tell stories about life through each design.

Anderson creates badges with the traditional cannetille technique and a metal ornamentation composed of thin wires to produce filigree patterns. In awe, Macon & Lesquoy asked to start a partnership that started with a moustache and bow tie, to become what is now a highly-coveted fashion line.
