Charabia Paris was created back in 1992 with a dynamic meeting between a French and a Swedish duo from the world of advertisement with the world of fashion. Lena Henriksson-Barenton was a young Swedish stylist for woman’s fashions, from the houses of Lanvin and Chantal Thomass. Eric Barenton was a Parisian advertising agent with marketing experience with big agencies like Havas, DDB Needman. Together they launched the brand Charabia Paris, as a newborn gift collection.
