detail rico

Cool cotton and neutral palettes complement the crisp tailoring and elegant lines of this new wave of minimalism.

Our new designs for spring are influenced by 90’s minimalism and structural architecture. Attention to detail and ultimate comfort is in focus here- fused hems and box pleats give a contemporary feel.

Read on for more details about the styles in our edit!


Glow pleated blouse

Elevated from a simple t-shirt shape, this gorgeous blouse has been given a boxy shape which slopes subtly at the back. It’s easy-to-wear with a zip at the back and the pleats on the lower half add a feminine touch.

Tip: Wear with slim fitting trousers

Rico pleated top

This go-with-everything top has a beautiful asymmetric hem with fused edges- giving it a modern and clean finish. The cotton poplin gives structure to the pleats at the back and is contrasted with loose, comfortable cotton jersey at the front for a contemporary take on the t-shirt.

Tip: This style looks great with jeans.

Carrie pleated dress

Sister to Rico, this cotton dress is perfect for garden parties under the sun as the cotton poplin on the back is cool and fresh to the touch and the cotton jersey on the front is lightweight and ultra comfortable. The beauty of this dress is that you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion- the epitome of easy, breezy spring style.

Tip: Carrie looks just as good with casual sliders as it does with heeled sandals.

Know your knits: The Ottoman Rib

By April 15, 2016 NEW ARRIVALS

Here at Les 100 Ciels, we’re knit obsessed! With knitwear running through the core of every collection, we know a thing or too about different types of knits.  We would like to introduce you to our new ottoman ribbed jumper, Calivn. This light-weight knit will keep you cosy on cooler spring evenings and is breathable going into the summer months thanks to the tubular stitches’ long pockets of air.


 

Calivn has clean, rolled edges and a split hem making it the perfect partner for jeans on the weekends.

This knit’s USP is it’s smooth, soft inside on the reverse of the ribbed exterior.

The firm qualities of the stitch means that the shape will keep and gives the style a modern, boxy feel.

SS16 Designer’s Inspiration

By January 22, 2016 BEHIND THE SCENES, NEW ARRIVALS
blog 5

 

New season, new knitwear!

Want to be in the know about next season’s key shapes and colours? Look no further than our interview with the brains behind the new Spring Summer ’16 styles, our Head Designer Stephanie.

She tells us what inspired her designs this season by showing us a glimpse of her moodboard, and explains what qualities we will all be wearing this summer. Bring on the warmer months!


 

“This season, we’ve taken inspiration from the minimal 90’s decade, with particular emphasis on structure and simplistic silhouettes. We’ve used references from the archives of couture design and combined this with interesting yarn techniques for a modern feel.”

Blog 1

 

 

“We’ve looked at primitive, tribal influences to inform our print designs. The main focus for colour has come from the work of artist Callum Innes. He uses a method of layering pigments of colour, which results in a vivid array of tones. We’ve translated these varying hues into a fusion of pale pink, grey marls and indigo ombré details.”

blog 3

“In this Spring Summer season, we’ve focused on using natural fabrics like washed silks, linen and cotton. Our signature summer quality, cotton poplin, gives you a freshness when worn making it perfect for warmer days! We’ve also experimented with hand-dyed fabrics, making each piece one-of-a-kind.”

blog 4

 

 

 “Box pleats, fused trims and slim forms are the key design details and silhouettes for the season. We have also developed the cape shape, which can be seen across dresses, tops and coats. I like to pair these pieces with our slim-lines styles to create an elegant shape that’s versatile and modern.”

Coming soon….

How to wear: boxy fit

By July 17, 2015 FASHION
54a9dc7a1c4b8368990af340f7cc7cad

Today we are focusing on our favourite box fit styles.

Let’s start by deciphering our boxy shape!

Decoding the Les 100 Ciels boxy fit

Our designs are built around a core of classic silhouettes, which are combined with contemporary fashion styles every season.

The Les 100 Ciels ‘fashion’ styles combine innovative cuts with unique detailing, featuring dipped hems and asymmetric shapes.

Inspired by minimalist shapes, the selected styles fall into this innovative fashion range but still remain super easy to wear!

Read our how-to-wear guide to make choosing your fashion-forward styles that much easier!

 


‘The loose-fit’

Katie is our easy-breezy summer style in natural linen. The silhouette is loose with a slight flare and features a split-hem for added interest!

Katie Linen Top | £69

Styling tips: Contrast the flared top with slim-fitting jeans for a modern silhouette. This is the style for you if you want to flatter your middle area.

‘The cropped box’

Chant is short and sweet with a bright, bold print! There’s a split at the back which creates a figure-flattering line and features cropped sleeves for a fresh feel.

Wendy is our wardrobe staple for the summer. With the weather acting unpredictable recently, an easy cover-up is essential. With its relaxed boxy shape, Wendy is the perfect off-duty weekend jumper.

the cashmere treatment

Say hello to our new Cotton-Like-Cashmere line!

New in for Spring, these basics are soft like our luxurious cashmere, but with the coolness of cotton.

2

What makes this line so special is the lengths we go to ensure that you experience this softness.

We use a different process than what is usually used to spin cotton- we give it the cashmere treatment! The cotton goes through our wool and cashmere spinning methods, allowing the fibres to become super plump and fluffy.

We love producing these pieces and we hope you enjoy wearing them too!
