They stitch the skin of a Speedy bag with beeswax-coated yarn, hollow a pea jacket at the waist, sheath the trunk case of a Wardrobe with a creaser, smooth a shoe upper to perfection, scour the contours of a Craquantes jewel, coat the arms of a pair of glasses, file the bevels of a Tambour movement.... Gestures speak. Instruments confer. Words are silent. Passion is revealed. Bruno Aveillan brings his artist's eye to the House's know-how, passing it on in turn, in his own way.
