Présentation

Harpe is a studio of Parisian creations. Marina and Françoise offer their ready-to-wear brand online as well as the creations of wedding dresses to admire in their Paris showrom. Created by a mother / daughter duo in March 2014, passionate about fashion, whose many years of experience in the trade have forged their values, HARPE is a creative brand that caters to all women.

Attracted by the craft and the detail, HARPE projects you in its romantic & bohemian universe and heals the manufacture of its collections by proposing a collection of quality, made in France. The collections, based on the morphologies of today, direct the customers towards the models adapted to their forms.

Harp is above all a legacy, a family affair ... Françoise and Marina are the two creators of the brand. Françoise, the mother and Marina, the daughter, share this taste for fashion and design for a long time. Françoise, model and stylist training, realizes the collections with her daughter, from the sketch to the final version, and Marina deals with communication and marketing. This research and design work that they do together results from a transgenerational and complicit cooperation.

The morphologies

morphologies

To determine your morphology, stand in front of a mirror and pay attention to the contours of your silhouette and its proportions. Then look for the part of your body that is most highlighted or the one you are trying to hide.

All morphologies have assets, Harp allows you to choose your model according to your morphology and enhance your silhouette.

Five morphologies exist and each of us has its own silhouette whether strong, thin or corpulent. Each body is unique, no morphology is limited in the choice of clothes.

hanches prononcees

PRONOUNCED HIPS

This morphology called "pyramid" has a bust and a thin waist and developed hips. The figure grows down from the small hips. This morphology is one of the most feminine.

Advice

Pronounced hips, you seek to balance and emphasize the upper part of the body. To visually balance the shoulders and hips, avoid tight-fitting clothes and tops that stop at the strongest level of the thighs. Avoid pleated trousers and pleated skirts that will thicken the hips. Prefer trapezoid shapes, shouldered jackets or empires. Feel free to wear necklines or boat collars to expand your build.

Buste droit

RIGHT BUST

Narrow, your build is straight and the size is not very marked.

This elongated morphology has few curves. The shoulders are in the same extension as the hips.

Advice

Avoid patterns and shapes that emphasize this lack of size. Favor straight cuts and straight pants. You can also afford necklines and V-necks.

The empire form is your ideal.

SHOULDER

This morphology called "inverted pyramid" is identified by the well-developed upper part of the bust. The shoulders are wider than the narrow hips. The size of your jackets is greater than that of your pants.

Advice

Forme

PLUMP

The morphology in shape is round. Your forms are generous. Shoulders, hips and round belly, you have a developed chest.
