Stephane & Raphael LABRUYERE

Raphael Labruyere

After he finished his studies at a Parisian design school, Raphael did not hesitate to grab the opportunity to join forces with his father in the Atelier Labruyere. He sees there another way of building, working the material.

Raphael has been immersed in the universe of design and fashion since his childhood. It is then in the year of 2012 that Raphael opens his own store with his father in their hometown Saint Germain-en-Laye.

The high-end concept store “PHAAREL”, an anagram for “Raphael”, revealed the true taste of its creator for esthetics and design, through the choice of the carefully selected ready-to-wear collections, sneakers, accessories and other life style objects.

Stephane Labruyere

As a 1988 graduate of the Ecole Superieure des Arts Modernes in Paris, Stephane worked as an independent worker. It was through his work on luxurious private projects he gained all of his experience.

In 2007, Stephane Labruyere initiated a new adventure by creating his own company with the name: Atelier Labruyere. Within the last ten years, the atelier has been able to realize more than 200 projects located in Paris, the capital’s suburbs and places, such as Deauville, Le Touquet, Megève, and Saint-Tropez.

A very demanding clientele looking for modern homes, living spaces with character and sumptuous have trusted Stephane with their luxury residences, private hotels and large mansions.

Fascinated by the fashion sector, Stephane teamed up with his son in 2012 to create the “PHAAREL” concept store, and through this exact concept a family business arose. 

Architecture and Fashion

Atelier Labruyere

Through his atelier, Stephane re-thinks the spaces of large mansions while also respecting the history of the location. Furthermore, the customer demands are of course also of high priority. With a sensibility, for each project Stephane restructures the spaces, functionalizes and modernizes them, while playing with the perspectives and materials.  

Over the years, the workshop has realized many luxurious projects that meet the expectations and demands of an affluent clientele. To make the realizations come true, Stephane is surrounded by a trustworthy team of architects and interior designers he collaborates with on all his projects.


PHAAREL is a high-end concept store created by the desire of a father and a son to express their own vision of fashion, their own universe.

The idea itself emerged in October 2012. A year later the store welcomed the Saint Germain customers. The selection of sharp and modern items is presented in an industrial framework where the black metal beams reveal themselves under a skylight in the heart of the space.
