Jean-Claude Gallon @ Jean-Claude Gallon, Paris
Jean Claude Gallon’s idea of luxury is firstly the possibility to express yourself.
He has an atypical path marked by happy encounters, with known or unknown but always very creative people. Being very curious, he felt like opening 3 successive salons beginning 1974.
In 1992, he opened a salon at rue Saint Honore in Paris which was already very confidential, with a very comfortable first floor. In 1996 he became artistic director of the famous maison Carita.
Always looking for new projects, he created the Salons d’Hotes for the Kokusaibunka academy in 2003.
ELLE magazine described them as the ‘must’ of Saint Germain des Pres at that time.
In 2007, he refined his world to get to the point at 3 rue Paul Louis Courier, at the corner of Bac Saint Germain.
His salon was designed to be innovative, transparent, mysterious and luxurious for everyone.
Jean-Claude is creative, shares his know-how and listens to everybody.
His encounters were firstly with his loyal customers, that’s to say:
- With Dior for Gianfranco Ferré, Victor and Rolf, Séradin Vassilief and Maurizio Galante for the couture world.
