LOUIE is a ready to wear fashion house based in Paris, France, and is the contrivance of Charlotte Couture and Anthony Teyssier.
WHO ARE WE?
Charlotte Couture spent her childhood traveling the world alongside her parents. She cultivated experiences while residing in Morrocco and Austria, as well as the breathtaking landscapes of French Polynesia. Anthony, a true Lyonnais, was born and raised between the historic silk ateliers of Lyon, the vineyards of Crozes Hermitage, and couture shoe maker Jourdan.
While Charlotte decidely stepped into the fashion world by working for several fashion houses, including Nina Ricci, Tara Jarmon and Cher Michel Klein, Anthony moved to California for his university years to attend courses in international management.
In 2014, Charlotte and Anthony’s paths crossed, and together they decided to give life to the Parisian Fashion House of LOUIE. Anthony, he pragmatic dreamer, brings true inventive strategy, which Charlotte, the creative epicurean, counters with her intricately woven stories. It is through their personal experiences and their common sensibility that Charlotte and Anthony would like to share a world of fashion where ready-to-wear piece evokes a sentimental reaction.
The brand invokes the designer’s travels abroad, souvenirs and their fondest memories, ultimately revealing a quintessential sensory experience. Each collection transcribes a true story and invites you to interpret the experience through the 5 senses. LOUIE aims to appeal your gaze, titilate your eyelids, envelope you in a luscious fragrance, perhaps even make you shiver a bit, all in hopes of moving you and allowing you to step into their universe.

Extract from "Partage"
After a first collection, the "collection 0", inspired by the world of architecture through the creations of the photographer Matthias Heiderich and the artist Gordon Matta-clark, LOUIE is coming back for 2016 Spring Summer with a collection inspired by one of our last trip.
NEW COLLECTION SPRING SUMMER 2016 : AMALFI's SOUVENIR
LOUIE's SS 2016 collection takes its inspiration from Charlotte and Anthony's travel on Amalfi coast.
This is the story of an escape at the edge of the cliffs to discover cities with graphic and colorful architecture, nestled in the heart of a luxuriant nature, with the scent of jasmine.
From white to black through pastel shades, the collection is illuminated by a klein blue and emerald green. The sleek and structured cuts coexist with geometric inserts, enriched by quality materials like metallic champagne lambskin or goat suede.
This collection sets up LOUIE's first essentials, and invites you to discover the Amalfi experience through exclusive designs.
LOUIE imagine a silhouette that is both sober and uninhibited, with precise yet surprising details that define the collection. Our ambition is to offer you a complete and timeless wardrobe that is composed of classic pieces along with various unique and more engaging creations, all to be worn throughout the day or chosen for specific occasions. LOUIE is a call to self-identity as feminine and androgynous, simple yet assuming, as having an ounce of humor and plenty of emotions: an essential Parisian yet also terribly international sense of style, adapted to each personality.
OUR FABRICATION PROCESS
Since we wish to create quality clothing pieces at the best price possible, we have decided to produce in small workshops rather than in large factories. This means that pieces A to Z are created under one roof, allowing us to ensure the highest care for our creations, as well as executing high quality finishes and details. We possess the specific know-how for the quality of clothing we create as well ass the materials that are used. At LOUIE, we indulge in the privilege of using quality materials, such as sheepsking leather and goat suede of French and Italian origins, as well as superb silks and cottons.
