Franck Boclet is a famous French Designer of Fashion and Niche Perfume. Being a true Parisian designer, he creates extremely masculine as well as inversely feminine fashion contrary to trends, which achieve a high degree of sensuality, detail, volume, rigor and well-being. Passionate about contemporary art, design and music, Franck Boclet is inspired by everything he encounters: the rock icons of the 80s, details seen in a film, a beautiful landscape or even just out of the blue.
A man of action and concreteness, a fiery temperament, a rebellious and impulsive side makes him a fashion and fragrance chameleon. After training as a textile engineer in 1985, Franck Boclet worked for different brands such as the Kenzo, Arrow and Courrèges Houses, as well as served as the Artistic Director for both the Ungaro and Smalto Houses.
