The word “demimonde,” French for “half-world”, refers to the space between the day and the night, where definition is not necessary and vagueness is specific. It can be what you want, but when you are in the Demimonde and seek to go back… you must choose one, the dark or the light, or remain in the half world. The Demimonde were considered women of illicit means, artisans and hedonists and in that spirit, Demimonde celebrates the illicit affairs we have with the objects we adorn ourselves with.
