Baron Papillon is an independent
luxury brand of sneakers made in France.
Parisians at heart, made on the banks of the Loire,
our sneakers combine craftsmanship and technical innovations,
to a sensitive and creative aesthetic.
Aware of the ecological challenges we used a reasoned production,
Baron Papillon chooses French know-how to offer you exceptional sneakers.
Recognizable by its orange sole and Place de l'Etoile imprint,
Baron Papillon was founded by Eric Lemaitre in 2013.
Combining the design of its TM180 scratch and the secret alchemy of a herbs sole allowing us to wear our sneakers barefoot, since 2018 the brand has favored an eco-responsible circuit by offering real made in France manufacturing to reduce our environmental impact and support local know-how.
The choice of top-quality natural materials from French linen, Italian leathers and organic cotton is the guarantee of the brand's solidity and comfort. Embossed with our crowned butterfly, our sneakers are assembled with precision and offer the refinement of authentic craftsmanship.
To reconcile our ethics and our passion for fashion, Eric Gallais, accessory stylist who has worked with Yves St Laurent, Hedi Slimane and Tom Ford and DA at Loewe, designs our new collections combining creativity and tradition, with a “je ne sais quoi” chic and freedom so Frenchy!
Committed to reasoned and responsible production, we adhere to the principle of “zero destruction” of our unsold products and continue to develop creative processes favoring the search for European materials that are truly respectful of the environment, while associating with ecological collaborative projects.
