Maison Lejaby saved by a Franco-Indonesian tandem

In receivership since early 2024, Maison Lejaby has been taken over by a Franco-Indonesian tandem. The company is faring better than some of its assets (Habitat, Burton of London, Orcanta), which have been acquired since 2019 by businessman Thierry le Guénic and are now in liquidation.

 

On May 7, the Lyon Commercial Court ruled that Maison Lejaby, a specialist in high-end lingerie, will be able to continue on its way thanks to a Franco-Indonesian takeover tandem.

 

The Indonesian group Mirae, in association with the French company GC Consult, were chosen for their “best offer” over the two other candidates for the takeover of the company, which went into receivership on January 2. On the one hand, the Franco-Turkish consortium, owner of Pimkie, Amoniss (formerly Kindy), Lee Cooper France and Ibisler Tekstil (a Turkish manufacturer), and on the other, Isatex, Maison Lejaby’s Tunisian industrial partner, belonging to the French group Les Ateliers ISA, were also in the running.

 

Almost half the workforce taken over

 

But it was the Mirae-GC Consult duo, proposing the takeover of almost half of the workforce (22 out of 48 employees), evenly distributed between departments, that convinced first the staff representatives and then the court. The tandem will pay 453,000 euros to take over Maison Lejaby.
