Claudie Pierlot is one of those brands that grows on you. Simple, fresh, effortless, you can’t help but be swept away by the elegant French charm of this distinctive Parisian label.
If you’re after a minimalist look with attention to detail or clean lines in bold colours, check out Claudie Pierlot. The namesake designer (who sadly passed away in 2010) created a distinctive look that doesn’t seem to age. And the brand continues to successfully marry timeless classics with the latest trends. It’s the ultimate go-to for pieces that you’ll want to pull out of your wardrobe season after season.
Slowly popping up in the chicest shopping areas of London (Hampstead, South Moulton Street, King’s Road, Westbourne Grove and most recently Marylebone), Claudie Pierlot sticks to the philosophy that if you’re going to do something, do it well. And as the steady invasion of this chic French brand in the UK has demonstrated, the focus on creating a distinctive look for women who don’t fashion too seriously seems to be working.
Here are my top picks of their latest collection available online at www.claudiepierlot.com/en_uk/
One of the distinguishing features of Claudie Pierlot is the attention to detail. Bows feature throughout the collection and draw the eye to the back of this simple yet stunning summer dress.
Maison Claudie Pierlot and the brother of Jane Birkin, Andrew Birkin, joined forces to create a series of t-shirts based on the freedom and music of the eponymous 60s’ couple Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. For more inspiration, check out the collection of photos here.
Classic with a capital ‘c’, these round-toed dolly shoes will never go out of fashion. Wear with a sixties-style dress and give Twiggy a run for your money.

Featuring another signature mark in the form of a Peter Pan collar, this loose fitting top works equally well with jeans or smart trousers for work.
