Last week I emailed Dragos Moldoveanu, one of the people behind Chenilles et Papillons, to find out more about the rather mysterious site, which I mentioned in this post on the appeal of 18th-century fashion. Yesterday he wrote back:

Moldoveanu says that Chenilles et Papillons is mainly an art project, but "everything is for sale, so it is most like a virtual book showing things we have done and the kind of costumes we are able to realize for our customers." As that might indicate, he is also opening a shop, La Fuite a Varennes (the name refers to the attempt of Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, and their children to escape the French Revolution), at 36 Rue de Varenne in Paris at the end of the month. He'll carry a mix of his costumes and some antiques. One of his costumes would sure beat an Eiffel Tower miniature as a souvenir.
