ETUDE BY FRÉDÉRIC FOREST
Born and raised in Annecy, the "Pearl of French Alps", Frédéric Forest discovered his first love before he could even write: drawing.
This passion lead him to Paris to study design and took him around Europe, working for a host of luxury brands, before settling back into Parisian life where he started his own design studio, Forest & Giaconia, with interior and product designer Clémentine Giaconia.
However, it is indeed ‘drawing’ that he is best known for with a cult like following stretches across the globe; 160k followers (and counting) as @fredericforest on Instagram and over 2500 people tattooing his designs on their bodies — the ultimate sign of fandom.
For DITA, he spent time doing what he loves the most — drawing in his Parisian studio in the 7th arrondissement. The resulting etude — a minimalist study of beauty, refinement and restraint — serves as further inspiration for those already converted and the perfect introduction to Forest’s specific style for new fans alike.
