PARIS — Paul Van Haver – aka Stromae – the Belgian singer-songwriter who rose to fame with his 2009 single “Alors on Danse” (or "So We Dance"), is extending his playful, gender-fluid fashion sense to a collaboration with Repetto under his Mosaert clothing brand.
Built on print-heavy, made-in-Europe unisex capsules hooked on polo shirts and socks, the clothing label – cofounded with his stylist wife Coralie Barbier – launched around the time of the artist’s “Racine Carreé” (or “Square Root”) album in 2013, and for the first two seasons was built on Van Haver’s own pop-dandy spirit tumbling together African and English country-gentleman influences. Its moniker is an anagram remix of the word maestro, on which the singer’s stage name was also based.
