Charles de Vilmorin launches its ready-to-wear line

After a two-year stint as artistic director of Maison de Couture Rochas, the 26-year-old designer is launching his own ready-to-wear label. The first 25 pieces will be unveiled this fall at the SPHERE showroom at Paris Fashion Week.


After just two years with Rochas Haute Couture, from 2021 to 2023, Charles de Vilmorin is launching his own ready-to-wear label.

WWD has just revealed that the 26-year-old fashion prodigy will present a first collection under his own name this autumn at the Sphere showroom, set up by the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM) during Paris Fashion Week.


25 pieces inspired by a George Sand poem


Did her illustrious aunt and writer, Louise de Vilmorin, inspire the idea? The 25 pieces in this first line are inspired by a double-entendre poem by George Sand. Serious and romantic if you read it in its entirety, it becomes very naughty when you skip every other line…

After delivering a rather unisex vision of fashion at Rochas, Charles de Vilmorin has come up with pared-down pieces, some likely to appeal to women but also to daring men. In addition to three dresses, the line will include denim shorts, shirts, printed scarves, a trench coat and new versions of the famous bomber jacket that put the designer in the spotlight.

All will be made in “beautiful, natural, noble materials rather than adding ruffles and volume“, the designer told WWD. Silk, silk taffeta and cottons, including Supima poplin and denim, will dominate the menu.

In subsequent seasons, the designer also plans to offer knitwear and accessories such as shoes.

Prices will range from 500 euros for a printed cotton shirt to around 2,000 euros for a trench coat.
