Figue is a women’s luxury lifestyle collection launched in 2012 by Stephanie von Watzdorf. Named for the ancient fruit, Figue (pronounced “fig”) was born out of Stephanie’s passion for travel and desire to share the talents of artisans around the world. The collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and jewelry has a global gypsy-meets-jet-set spirit, combining unique prints with layered textures, embroideries and hand-beading. The result is a seasonless brand that is every bit as luxurious as it is bohemian. Women who love to travel—or dream of traveling—to exotic destinations embrace Figue.
Stephanie draws inspiration from her artistic and global heritage. She was born on the outskirts of Paris to a German-French father and a Russian mother. Her grandfather, Leonide Massine, was the renowned Ballets Russes choreographer whose circle included Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Léon Bakst and Igor Stravinsky.
A graduate of Parsons School of Design and recipient of the Calvin Klein’s Golden Thimble award, Stephanie refined her aesthetic working for luxury brands including Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, and Ralph Lauren. In 2004, Stephanie joined Tory Burch, where she directed design development for ready-to-wear and accessories for over seven years.
The Figue collection is available at farfetch.com, the Figue Studio in Manhattan (by appointment only) and the Figue Boutique in East Hampton, as well as at over 50 retailers worldwide, including Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, net-a-porter.com and matches.com.
