Yes, right now they just bought minority stakes of Seraphin. They will let Seraphin collection... But it's question of time. ; ( 
Hermès strategy is to control the supply chain and avoid external supplier.
French House Hermès is buying French menswear luxury leather manufacture Seraphin...
Video interview of Lorenzo Cifonelli by Gentleman Chemistry :  
WOW those shoes are amazing ! Thx for the pictures : ) 
I was very disappointed by the words of Lanvin menswear artistic director, Mr Lucas Ossendrijever in an Itw made by GQ France.      1. Reinvent tailoring :   "When I started at Lanvin, 10 years ago, nothing was happening in the French menswear, in the world of custom-made, at least in the tailoring, except Dior. Today, we do pre-collection. the pace is quickening. And the menswear business is has developed enormously" 
Yes, I saw few Berluti shoes and beautiful John Lobb boots.    It's quite old-fashioned service since the second and third generation are working together. It's funny to see them arguing. The mother also remember me. ; )   They have very interesting design. It's quite unique in Paris. Also the Japanese Bespoke shoemaker Yasuhiro Shiota is doing an amazing work (and he is very kind). 
Génial Nicholas !     This week, I had the chance to observe at the Aubercy's new workshop "Haute Cordonnerie (high quality cobbler)".   http://www.high-toned.fr/en/2016/03/high-quality-cobbler-s-workshop-of-aubercy/   It's not French tailoring, but check it out guys ; ) 
French magazine called "Dandy" is now available in English language (translation at the end of the magazine).  This February/March issue got 11 pages focus on tailoring house Cifonelli... But I didn't learn anything new... ; )  
You should call before... You will see on the shelves of his atelier but Kenjiro Suzuki is really, really busy ! ; )    Btw he is not talking English, but his wife does.
