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

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.

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

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!
