Être Cécile has opened its first stand-alone store and we want everything in sight
When Être Cécile burst onto the fashion scene in 2014, husband and wife founders Yasmin Sewell and Kyle Robinson knew a thing or two about what makes a cult fashion label. Sewell has been a long-standing member of fashion’s insider club, starting her career at Browns Fashion before moving on to head up Style.com and more recently Farfetch so if there’s anyone you can count on for direction on what makes a ‘must-have’ piece, it’s her.
A few years in and Être Cécile’s incredibly popular, Parisian-inspired pieces (often spotted on London’s most stylish set), have found a new home in their first stand-alone store.
The shop, which is now open to the public, is situated on 40 Cross Street, Islington, and houses the current collection from Être Cécile, as well as offering customers an exclusive chance to explore archive collections, with plans to host special events throughout the year.
Now here comes the good part. You might remember that Stylist partnered with the brand for our Suffragette issue earlier this year to create a one-off slogan T-shirt, reading: “Women in history shouldn’t be a mystery.” Well, if you missed your chance to get one of the limited-edition shirts, you’re in luck as the remaining few are in store now. And if you are a big fan of the message (we definitely are) Être Cécile has painted an epic mural of the slogan on the wall of the store – perfect gram content, no?
And the even better part is, Stylist readers will receive an extra 15% off in store if you take in a print-out or screen-grab of this article. Go forth and shop.
