Ahilya

Ahilya

The modern wardrobe isn’t complete without a much-loved day to evening knit. This knit is a piece that will always make you fell good. It should be practical but also seductive and effortlessly chic. What it shouldn’t be is basic. A basic knit offers none of those qualities we all now seek. For me, my friends and I’m sure, for every modern woman, the search is for uniquely different designs that are beautiful yet cool and surprising, designs that define our style in a simple whisper and designs that are the result of skilled craftsmanship. We expect more from our brands. We long for pieces that say so much more than transient trend lust- I certainly do. Sustainability. Ethical Awareness. Environmental Responsibility. These are terms that genuinely mean something positive and since launching Ahilya, have come to signify real relationships and friendships built over time with a community of expert craftsmen.
The idea was formed during a visit to Kashmir. I was inspired by the ancient weaving traditions of the communities of the Changthangi highlands and suddenly, all the pieces fell into place. My vision was to create a scarf collection that shone a light on these communities, their skill, and the captivating beauty of their home- Kashmir is after all the birthplace of cashmere. I set out to work with their artisans and techniques and to fuse them with designs that were relevant to way we want dress today. For me that meant referencing the London design aesthetic- this city I now live in is vibrant and quirky interesting . This was fused with the casual femininity of Parisian style-my hometown.
The collection launched in 2008 , and I am proud to be able to say that we continue to source and combine only the finest materials from craftsmen who are recognized for their excellence and expertise. Ahilya’s heritage is inextricably linked to Kashmir and it’s exceptional yarn. As a result, we have been awarded Positive Luxury’s Butterfly Mark- a symbol of trust by the unique award-winning global membership program which highlights our commitment to global sustainability through our economic, social and environmental practices. Shopping at its guilt-free best.

Céline Robert

Céline Robert

Julia Petit, Céline Robert's maternal great-grandmother, had a hat shop "Modes-Deuils" (Fashion and Bereavement) in Vétheuil near Paris. At the time, as no man or woman ever went out without a hat, the millinery profession was considerable. Wearing a hat was a mark of social status.
A generation later, Reine-Marguerite Robert, Céline's paternal grandmother, founded the Fernand Robert fashion house, named after her husband. By 1934, she was designing the hats that Fernand sold all over France. The models she designed were reproduced countrywide by milliners wanting to "keep up with Paris fashions". Their workshop in the Faubourg Saint-Honoré employed up to seventeen workers. When cheap Italian hats arrived on the market, it forced them to invent new materials, such as woven trimmings. The family workshop closed in 1958 but Reine-Marguerite carried on making hats for private clients until 1985.
Her colours were then taken up by granddaughter Céline Robert. At first it was a game she played as a child watching her grandmother draping turbans, but soon creating hats became a pleasure, offering her a space for infinite creativity. After gaining her diploma in sculpture at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, Céline Robert opened her workshop in 1992 at the Moulins de Paillard near Le Mans. Céline Robert Chapeaux took off, quickly conquering French hat shops and buyers internationally. Her collections have been available in the Bon Marché since 1998, and in 2005 a first boutique was opened in Paris in the Marais district.
Over the years, Céline Robert's workshop has evolved considerably and is now a major actor in French millinery. Céline Robert made the conscious choice of having a fully staffed workshop, and six milliners work alongside her. With her continually renewed collections, particular attention to raw materials and finishing touches, high quality creations are guaranteed through the unique craftsmanship of heat-treated and modelled materials. From choosing the materials to the final depilling of the hat before it can be displayed in the shop, making each hat involves twenty or so different stages, all of which are done entirely by hand. In 2011 her workshop was awarded the label of Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) for skills excellence. The company is now responsible for the safeguard and transmission of two craft skills: heat-treating and depilling.
