Anthony is motivated primarily by two things: his studies in international relations and his work at Surmesur. He loves to learn and sees these two constantly evolving fields as fertile ground for his ongoing education.
Anthony is a lover of all things sophisticated and authentic, as evidenced as much in the outfits he creates at Surmesur as in his passion for fine wines and Scotches. To those in his personal entourage, he is someone who likes to laugh and make others laugh; to his clients in-store, he is an attentive professional who adapts well to the needs of all.
His dream is to become a diplomat, a vocation that would allow him to live abroad and to make good use of his interest in international relations, all the while continuing to wear great suits.
A proud Montrealer of Haitian origin, ‘Chris’ is driven by one thing: creation. He’s the first to admit that it’s his only passion. Even though he studied clothing structure, his heart belongs to accessories, particularly bow ties. For now, at least. While he is a talented designer, Christopher is also a daring entrepreneur, having launched his own brand.
The Exorphe Collection came into being by way of a happy accident. During an event, Christopher was tasked with finding a particular style of bow tie. When he couldn’t find what he was looking for, he simply decided to create it himself.
That’s all it took for this fabric architect to launch the Exorphe Collection, a line of handmade bow ties marrying form and colour at a price that flusters the competition.
But the artist doesn’t stop there. He is currently studying to become a patternmaker while continuing to offer his services as a style consultant at Surmesur, a house of creation on a different level, where he can share his enthusiasm and his open mind.
