BIÉDE is pleased to present "BIÉDE COLLECTION 03 IN LE MARAIS" in the Marais district of Paris. Along with BIÉDE's new creations, the exhibition will also feature unique jewelry pieces created in collaboration between BIÉDE and Noon Passama, a jewelry artist based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and Bangkok, Thailand. The jewelry can be attached to the handle of a bag as an accessory in any form, or worn as a bracelet and ring. The visuals are based on BIÉDE's story and photographed by Quentin Shih.
The exhibition will run from Thursday, September 29 to Thursday, October 6, 2022 during Paris Fashion Week. If you are in Paris during this period, we hope that you will be able to see BIÉDE's new works as well as the products created so far and the works created through collaboration.
The exhibition in Tokyo is scheduled to be held in late October 2022, and the official online store will start selling pre-orders around the same time as the exhibition in Tokyo. We will continue to post the latest information on our JOURNAL page and Instagram.

Q. What can we create with leather from today's advanced level of technology and craftmanship?
A. BIÉDE chose to create bags that create a more intimate and serene moment, like when you are in a hotel lounge.
Founded in Tokyo, BIÉDE creates leather accessories as genderless contemporary uniforms. Our multinational, borderless creative team designs architectural forms that evoke both Japanese mindful minimalism and luxury. Production is handmade by the finest Asian artisans with supreme attention to detail. All products leave a sense of modern opulent simplicity yet functional, giving off a timeless presence and accenting our outfit. BIÉDE continues to create products for modern people living in a complex society.
At the core of Noon Passama's practice is the designer's continuous study of the chain, one of the cornerstones of the Jewelry discipline. With each element sculpted and connected, the shapes are informed by time and serenity. The process begins with an investigation into the potential of the material, where meditation of intuitive movements shapes and refines the pieces. The result is a collection of distinctive Jewelry pieces and fine objects that are hand-crafted, assembled, and finished, made in a small batch, intended to last for generations. Noon Passama also works with one-of-a-kind Jewelry pieces, some of which have been included in the permanent collections of Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and have been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris. The designer is currently based between Eindhoven, the Netherlands and Bangkok, Thailand.
