French Cancan is a love story dating from the 1990s. Penet Pascale from Roubaix and Jean-Marie Monnier from Strasbourg met at trade show. for textiles. They joined forces in business and in life forming the TAND’M fashion house in 1991. They originally made socks and collaborated with Kindy, Olympia, and Pascale.
By 2005, they decided to design their own brand of footwear. Later, they decide to work on leggings with Calais lace based upon their ideas of Moulin Rouge. From leggings to sleeves and anklets, these pieces are full of satin ribbon and adorn the extremities. In 2008, Pascale and Jean-Marie add traditional lingerie to their line up.
With the leggings, sleeves, and anklets, French Cancan offers more complete sets than nearly everyone except Modern Courtesan and Trashy. Stop by the new store and enjoy this dose of Parisian, retro fun.
