The brand

“Style is a sentiment of the world”

André Malraux

Collections DOU BOCHI are made in France, in Arles.

Éric Bergère began his career in 1980 as the artistic director at Hermès.
Then he designed the ready-to-wear collections for Lanvin and after, took over from Giorgio Armani as head of Erreuno Milano in the 90s.
During this period, he also creates the collections of his friend Inès de la Fressange for a few seasons. In 2015 he becomes the studio director of the “Inès de la Fressange” brand.

His creativity also takes him to Japan where he has collaborated with the designer for the Japanese imperial court for over 30 years.
In 1995, he creates for his own brand “Eric Bergère”, and in 2016 launches “Dou Bochi”.
In 2018, he partners with David Garcia to develop the brand.

In the Dou Bochi workshop in Arles, Éric Bergère designs the dresses, and Quentin the patternmaker, creates the first patterns. Once the patterns are perfected, the dressmakers, all in Arles, make limited editions.

The natural lines of the dresses enhance the beauty of all women, complimenting their legs, waists, necklines, using subtle slits and inventive drawstrings. No buttons, no zippers, no lining.

Top-of-the-line linen, fundamentally ecological, is the textile used for the Dou Bochi creations. It is water-efficient, grown in France and woven in Belgium. Machine washable at 30°C, it develops a lustrous patina over time.

The DOU BOCHI woman has the privilege of a choice of dresses, created by a designer who offers unique and timeless designs adapted to her silhouette.
