The Parisian woman is admired the world over for her chic and edgy yet elegant wardrobe. And a label she reaches for time and time again is Claudie Pierlot, whose collections are an effortless reflection of French savoir-faire.
At once spontaneous and passionate, innovative and unpredictable, the label was established in the enchanting City of Light in 1984 by one such Parisienne: Claudie Pierlot. Pierlot had worked in fashion as a model, and as a designer for the likes of Dorothée Bis and Printemps. Today, under the perceptive eye of creative director Vanessa Pierrat, her eponymous label continues to fuse French flair with laid-back preppy style.
Claudie Pierlot is classic in its DNA, with an elegant colour palette, the Claudine neckline and feminine bows, but its pieces are made unique with irreverent twists and details such as naked backs, figurative prints and daring choices of fabric. Timeless items and accessories are frequently revisited in Claudie Pierlot collections, including the casual sailor top, the classic trench, the baby-doll dress, the college sweatshirt and cigarette trousers, ensuring bold looks suitable for any time of the day or night.
The latest, much-awaited Claudie Pierlot collections – designed for the free-spirited woman who is unafraid to break the rules – may be explored at the label’s stand-alone boutiques at Harbour City and ifc mall.
