Jac Cadeaux - Timeless French Style


Jac Cadeaux is a selection of exclusive French-inspired products.  Our line of products includes cotton Canvas Totes and Clutches with sequins, 100% linen Nautical Striped and White T-Shirts, Candles and Tea Towels, all made from the best quality materials in Australia and abroad.


The name Jac Cadeaux is the combination of my daughters initials, Ava and Juliette with Claudia, and cadeaux is French for “gift”.  Our philosophy is to deliver a range of of beautiful French style products and gifts reminiscent of France, at affordable prices but with the utmost attention to quality and durability


At the heart of French style is the art of using everyday luxuries to create an effortless look.  I remember as an Australian woman in her 30’s living in Paris, I would watch these immaculate and composed creatures with a sense of awe.

Only a French woman would dare team her Chanel jacket with active wear, shopping for the perfect pâté after her Spin Class. Their impossible chicness, along with all the other cultural delights of France, made a lasting impression on me.  And even now, having returned from my French Sejour and happily home living in Sydney, I am still drawn to all things French - the language, French films, fashion and design.


However it is their day to day lifestyle that really inspires this range of products.  Their celebrated sophistication is always understated yet they are renowned for being the best dressed women in the world.  The French famously dismiss trends, and simply wear and carry what looks good.  They are adept at creating their own signature look, and work with an aesthetic that is timeless.


The Jac Cadeaux website will offer other lovers of all things French a destination for not just my range of products, but a place to gather to celebrate French style and daily life; including interviews with French designers, where to find the perfect bistro on the La Rive Gauche, iconic style inspirations, travel and film tips and amusing articles from columnists who have an affinity to the French way of life.

 

About Claudia

I founded Jac Cadeaux as France is and will always be one of my great loves.  Having lived there for 4 years, it created an eternal fascination and appreciation for beautiful French products.  Paris seems to show off at every corner and as Ernest Heminway wrote “Paris Is A Moveable Feast” - J'espère (I hope) Jac Cadeaux transmits this Savoir Vivre through its line of goods.


And as an unabashed French lifestyle enthusiast, may the Jac Cadeaux brand bring you an abundance of joie de vivre.


Along with Jac Cadeaux, we also have the successful La Petite French Classe, exclusive French language classes in Sydney for the discerning client.  So now you can sound and look French too!
