With an architect father, a mother fashioning children’s clothes and a grandmother working as a tailor, Charlotte Pringels’ youth was characterised by creativity. In 2007, she entered the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, from
which she gained a master’s degree in 2012. She founded her own label the same year she graduated. “I wanted to create a fashion label for strong women with character, who do not blindly follow trends,” she begins. “Women who have their own style and identity.” The Belgian-based designer creates pieces unique in their simplicity, often made with natural materials and featuring classic elements. Her timeless designs are comfortable to wear and suit women from a size four to 16. The highest quality materials, a good fit and drape are essential: “An item of clothing stands or falls with its material: that is the basis,” Pringels says. All patterns are made by Pringels herself, and every piece is fitted to a wide variety of body types.
