Spotlight On


As seen on Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Charlize Theron & Gwyneth Paltrow, this is the London label that should be on your radar.

Meet Lisou, the new It-brand on the block. The London-based label blends classic with contemporary, playing with pussy-bow necklines and box pleats in a Mad Men-esque nod to the past. Lisou's clothing is for the nostalgic among us, yet appeals to the modern city-girl sensibility with body-skimming silky silhouettes elevated by kitsch and playful prints. A collection of wearable, throw-on-and-go styles, all in beautiful 100% silk are paired with the label's now iconic vintage inspired printed scarves and statement cover ups.

Fast-tracked as a celebrity favourite, Lisou has made quite an impression in its two-year existence. The label’s chic pieces have been spotted on A-listers; Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Helen Mirren – to name a few. Founder Rene Macdonald credits Lisou’s distinctive aesthetic. “We're known and loved for our bold colours, striking hand-drawn prints and clean, elegant silhouettes,” says stylist-turned-designer Rene, who's West London boutique is a frequented hotspot among the city's fashion girls.

Sound like your taste to a tee? If so, we know you'll love these divine designs...


Lisou strikes the balance between city-chic style and timeless design. Designer and founder Rene tells us, “I’m inspired by the environment around me, a mix of vintage silhouettes and personal nostalgic memories.” The old-school influence is clear in the '50s-esque dresses, cut at a modern midi length. Lisou's statement wool coats are the epitome of retro glamour; dress them down with jeans and your favourite sneakers for an effortless, off-duty option.

But while Rene looks to the past for inspiration, her collections are tailor-made for the modern woman. From on-trend co-ords to sleek party dresses, the label's fresh approach has won it a global fanbase of influencers and celebrities alike. “I design clothes that can be dressed up or down, and styled for the way we live today.” Rene explains, “Everything has to work with trainers and heels!” So, take note from the designer herself and style your silk dress with a some casual kicks, or pair your silk trousers with party-ready heels.

And, if it's possible, Lisou's relate-able ethos has made us love the dreamy clothing line even more. “We are a brand designed by women for women and our core belief is that every woman deserves to wear beautiful clothing that makes her feel fabulous.” With the label's reputation for luxurious fabrics and flattering silhouettes, feeling fabulous is pretty much guaranteed.
