A street-style star in its own right, être cécile is a super-cool, motif-loving label, based in London and in love with Paris.
Inspired by the sophisticated simplicity of French style, être cécile was founded by Yasmin Sewell and Kyle Robinson, who shared a vision of creating a truly unique label defined by chic core pieces. The brand’s identity is based around a fictional character, Cécile, an Irish artist living in 1960s Paris with a love of both fashion and animal prints. With an endlessly wearable, contemporary approach, être cécile finds fresh ways to bring a lighthearted voice and humour into everyday wear.
THE ÊTRE CÉCILE STORY
Driven by a long-standing desire to find core pieces that would rise up to the aesthetics of a chic wardrobe, être cécile was founded by Yasmin Sewell and Kyle Robinson, who collectively aspired to create a unique ready-to-wear collective, taking inspiration from the cleanliness of French style. The brand’s heritage is based around ‘Cécile’, an Irish-born artist living in 1960s Paris, with a love of animal prints and a creative flair for fashion.
Designed for the true fashion girl, être cécile defines a new breed of contemporary brands, combining the ease and wearability of casualwear, along with considered aesthetics that sit comfortably amongst designer pieces. Playing on its original identity as a luxury t-shirt label, the brand finds its voice in subtle injections of humour and lightheartedness, reflective of its true essence and approach.
The brand is produced in Europe with showrooms in Paris, New York and the designers’ home of London, where the brand was conceived
