Founded in 2016, domestique is an atelier designing accessories and objects inspired by a reflection on desire and eroticism. Appropriating bondage-sadmasochism’s imagery, domestique transforms and elevates them into luxurious and cheeky accessories.
Being design objects, erotic tools and fashion accessories, it’s the impertinent versatility that best characterizes our atelier’s spirit. Spearheaded by Bastien Beny, every domestique piece is conceived and manufactured in Paris. Our products are handcrafted in naturally tanned leathers and non-allergenic metals, highlighted by particularly detailed finishings.
It’s in Paris’ Ecole de Condé and Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, as well as in Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design in London that Bastien Beny elaborates his first collections, or garments first, then leather goods and accessories.
Sensitive to raw materials, he specializes in luxurious accessories emanating from natural elements, sometimes recycled, a snub to the fast-fashion industry and over-consumption.
Bastien Beny has been collaborating with Hermes petit h since 2011, where he imagines unique pieces and series of objects in limited edition. He also collaborates with Thimister, Ungaro, Gianfranco Scotti and Rue du Mail.
Amused by the poor quality of design and down to earth approach of specialized boutiques, he founds with Simon Delacour the atelier domestique in 2016 where he playfully reinterprets the codes of bondage-sadomasochism and transforms them through the prism of his luxury experience.
Together with associate Simon Delacour, overseeing the strategy and business development and another specialist of the fashion industry, the duo works towards modernizing and improving the image of the Parisian sensuality.
