Exploring the many layers of femininity - one fold at a time
Packed with feminine energy and inspired by the coasts of Positano, this vibrant brand sparks new fervor into the joy of dressing up.
When Breeana Smith took her first trip to Paris, a family heirloom was passed down to her – a simple plissé pleated skirt. Little did she know; it would be the spark that would ignite the brilliant burning fire that L’IDÉE Woman is today.
Starting from the ground up, Breeana Smith has always been an independent working woman who dedicated 15 years to the fashion industry before launching her own concept brand. Having had experience working with multiple brands at an agency level, she quickly started spotting gaps in the event wear market. It is when Breeana met with Iuliia Ievdokymenko during her time in Bali, and shared like-minded business ideas of a sustainable fashion label, was when the brand was born.
The brand also boasts of using 100% polyester making it easy to recycle. One of the strongest selling points of the pleated fabrics is that there is no need for maintenance or ironing. It is designed to be chucked in your suitcase and worn at a vacation.
Doing better than insincere size inclusivity, L’IDÉE strives to make every woman of every size & shape feel beautiful. “We as a brand are conscious to offer a diversified size range on our e-commerce website. We also work with many beautiful fabrics which are highly engineered to fit every body type. Our products are very fluid and are size inclusive.”
Not only has the brand received immense love and recognition in Australia, it is also being welcomed in the Middle Eastern region. While the Australian woman is more trend-oriented and experimental, Breeana describes the Arabian woman as opulent, tasteful, elevated and elegant. She also mentions the outfits can be styled and played around with depending on how one interprets it and put it together.
Smith couldn’t contain her thrill & joy when asked about the upcoming collections. She even gave us a little sneak peek into the upcoming collections, “We are exploring different ways to play with colour and pleats and also exclusive prints, and lastly, different fabrications. There’s lots of newness and freshness.”
Now available at Etoile “La boutique”, with its bold colours, dramatic pleats and high- spirited beauty, L’IDÉE’s opulent elegance fits right in with the region. Without compromising on the expression of the brand, L’IDÉE’s exclusive collections are diversified to serve a distinctive audience that are looking to invest in modest fashion.
