The brand Brescia Bercane was born in November 2017 from that exceptional encounter of two complementary souls, looking for freedom, inspiration, and creativity: Manon and Brescia.
Coming from a very artistic background, Brescia Bercane, the artist designer, has always been passionate about drawing and travelling. She first glimpsed the idea from her childhood, making her own creations with hand drawn prints, being free in her job and able to live in. On the first day she moved to Bali, she made friend with Manon and started to draw berber portraits and had a click: to print her drawing on sarongs that could be used as for the beach as for decoration. On her things, Manon has always shown a strong business acumen and joined Brescia in order to develop the brand with passion and dedication.
Both living in Bali, they launch their brand with a capsule collection (only seven printed sarongs) that turn out to be a commercial success on the island of gods. Each hand drawn drawing has an ethnic inspiration and comes from Brescia’s folk universe. In 2018, they developed a whole beachwear collection. It is a small brand on a human scale with limited productions – in Bali – but with big ambitions!
After developed the brand in Indonesia, Italia and Zanzibar, Manon came back definitely in France to give a new dimension to Brescia Bercane. Animated by the desire to move people with her art, Brescia Bercane will keep on reinventing new handmade design and printed textile for both beachwear, and home decoration, with of course the same quality and love for drawing.
Manon and Brescia opened the doors of their Showroom/Boutique in Bali at No.22 Jalan Tegal Cupek, in the middle of the French area.
Pristine white walls, chicken cages covered by colorful kitsch flowers as lamp made by hand, as soon as we enter the glass door, we jump with feet together through the designer’s nomad world. Sarongs, flagship of the brand, are hanging on a wooden display and by white rope: thus, drawn portraits find their place here and are real artworks.
Manon and Brescia’s favorite moment of the day is when the sun goes down: all soft lights are creating a cozy and warm ambiance that make us want to take a tea time. A place where everything brings us away ! We are going for a walk into a magical break, trying swimwear, clothing as soft as silk : a wardrobe compiling all our desires to embrace the sea. Going further, another room – separated by high white glass canopies – is the office/atelier of the brand. The designer lets free her imagination and cultivates what is making the core of Brescia Bercane brand: range of colors, hand drawing and joy !
