TOTEM is proud to introduce the new menswear label REGAIN. Regain is a company anchored in the tradition and savoir-faire of textiles. These ideals are not unfamiliar to our 40 years of practice in the manufacture of textiles. Our region and our city of Castres have been the symbol of the French textile industry for numerous decades. We like to think that we perpetuate this tradition and it is with this desire that, today, the pullovers made in our workshop proudly claim “made in France”. For us 2013 is the synonym of a turning point, a change in direction. We are in the process of thinking about and creating a totally new, top of the market range collection aimed at men. Yes, we have always dressed and protected the men and women who risk their lives and work for the protection of France: firemen, the military and the navy. And today we want all men to be able to wear our pullovers, our knitwear, our creations.

TOTEM is very happy to introduce Anne Sofie Madsen, Danish designer, in its showroom. She will displayed during our Press Days.
TOTEM is delighted to welcome Maria Francesca Pepe, the UK based jewelery designer. The FW13 collection will be shown during our Press Days!
MARIA FRANCESCA PEPE'S EXOTIC SPIRITUALISM
'Never is a Promise and you cannot afford to lie'...it's a quote from a Fiona Apple's song that I always loved, it explains perfectly the deepest meaning of body art, from which this collection takes inspiration', explains Maria Francesca Pepe.
For her forthcoming FW'13 collection, the jewelry designer looked to tattoo pop art, tribal and eastern cultures, and their use of body embellishment as prime points of inspiration. Pepe's six-year-old namesake line is known for high-concept, graphic designs that traditionally find a loyal following within the fashion and celebrity set. In a recent preview to editors, she explains how an, albeit, ironic confluence of gypsy and gothic punk themes informed her latest efforts. It's an admission to tried-and-true design references that, suddenly, feel freshly informed and directional in a stand-out collection of cool-girl jewels with a slightly subversive twist.

URBAN LUXURY… it’s all about the dialogue
“In terms of the manufacturing process, it has been quite a challenge. We have combined the finest cashmere with leather to fulfill the highest standards of workmanship”, says Karg. “And we achieved this by collaborating with the best and most experienced artisans.”The result: leather and fur intersecting in harmony with cashmere to create a new urban Allude Silhouette.
In this collection Andrea has maintained her usual slim, figure-hugging silhouette, contrasting with a strong boyish look – sharp lines, crisp tailoring with masculine details. Cashmere, the material she is most passionate about, is weighted accordingly: from the finest knits of wafer to extremely opulent tailored multiple textures. A unique combination resulting in an ultra feminine hyper-cool look. Karg surprised her audience with four striking men styles.
The designer's colour palette is a response to the urban landscape - Petrol and Steel Blue paired with Dense Black.
