Christopher Shannon Menswear began in 2008, with a vision of moving British menswear on from its legacy of fine tailoring and a mission to create modern, relevant garments drawing on diverse references. The label is stocked by trend- leading stores around the world, such as Harvey Nichols, IT, Opening Ceremony, 10 Corso Como and Space Mue.
Driven by a long-standing desire to find core pieces that would rise up to the aesthetics of a chic wardrobe, être cécile was founded by Yasmin Sewell, Jemma Dyas and Kyle Robinson, who collectively aspired to create a unique ready-to-wear collective, taking inspiration from the cleanliness of French style. The brand's heritage is based around ‘Cécile', an Irish-born artist living in 1960s Paris, with a love of animal prints and a creative flair for fashion.
Designed for the true fashion girl, être cécile defines a new breed of contemporary brands, combining the ease and wearability of casualwear, along with considered aesthetics that sit comfortably amongst designer pieces. Playing on its original identity as a luxury t-shirt label, the brand finds its voice in subtle injections of humour and lightheartedness, reflective of its true essence and approach.
