The White Tee

An essential part of any woman’s wardrobe is a simple white t-shirt. Clean minimalism at its best, it’s ideal for laid back days…to ground a bold print, or contrast a bit of sparkle..    We love our Avron tee- an update on the classic T-shirt, with a boxy shape, fused seams and a tiered hem. A versatile style that we reach for time and again.           Shop all our white styles here Get more inspiration on white t-shirts on our Pinterest page!

Know your knits: The Ottoman Rib

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.
