SS16 Designer’s Inspiration

  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.”     “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.” “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 ...

OUR NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD | Le marais

The secret is out… We’ve opened our first store in Paris! We could not be happier about moving into our new neighbourhood: Le Marais. The area buzzes with boutiques, chic restaurants and food stalls, and where bookshops double up as wine bars (you couldn’t get a better combination in our eyes!). Sandwiched between St-Paul and République, the Marais has been one of the hippest parts of Paris for the last two decades. Read on to find out what our favourite spots in the Marais are!    Le Mary Celeste If you’re looking for somewhere to brunch while people watching, Le Mary Celeste is your place! Located in a former video editing office, the decor takes on a nautical theme with rope wrapped columns and white washed bricks. This place is renowned for their amazing cocktails, spicy kimchi and a 1 euro oyster bar at happy hour. Tips: Bag a window seat and watch the world go by whilst sipping on Michael’s Garden Fizz (a delicious citrus drink with lime, egg whites and ginger beer) and indulging on Pain Perdu de Brioche Maison (french brioche toast with sautéed mushrooms with lemon zest and parsley). Delicious! 75003, 1 Rue Commines, 75003 Paris, France ...

TOP 5- Art Month

It’s that time of year again when the art fairs take over London. We have picked our top 5 artistic attractions for this month, with a view on upcoming exhibitions and a summary of our favourite events.   1. The Les 100 Ciels team love the idea of combining art and fashion, so when we stumbled across North American master Richard Tuttle’s work, we wanted to share it with you!                 This artist’s pieces often feature everyday materials such as cloth, paper and rope, but for this particular exhibition Tuttle has taken inspiration from textiles. I Don’t Know. The Weave of Textile Language looks at the importance of textiles throughout history and combines a major exhibition in the Whitechapel Gallery, a large-scale sculptural commission in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and a brand new book. The sculpture is at the Tate Modern until 6th April 2015 and the exhibition is in the Whitechapel Gallery until 14th December.   2. Frieze week did not disappoint this year, firmly placing London on the map as a centre for art. One of our favourite artists we saw this year was recent graduate May Hands. Like Tuttle, her ...
