Once upon a time, way back in 2002, a fashion graduate called Laura Cloke decided to turn her hand to the world of lingerie. She began making collections by hand for selected London boutiques and with the help of some amazing press and fashion darlings, these delicate fancies soon made their way to London Fashion Week. Ell and Cee then began dressing fashionable derrieres everywhere.
Ell and Cee is now an established brand featuring lingerie, lounge and swimwear collections with stockists ranging from Selfridges, ASOS and Urban Outfitters to Italian lingerie parlours and luxe Ibizian boutiques. Recognised as a leading luxury lingerie brand, Ell and Cee adds a touch of ‘chic’ to everyday dressing and has acquired an uber cool celebrity following, receiving regular press pieces in top fashion publications. Having begun her career in womenswear, Laura decided to return to her routes and design a collection of ready to wear pieces while still retaining loyalty to the best quality fabrics and trims available. Ell and Cee is for the creative dresser who likes to experiment with fashion, fabric and accessories. In keeping with this, our designs often blur the line between underwear and outerwear.
We use luxurious silk and silk chiffons to ensure the best quality in our garments and manufacture in the UK, with the hand beaded designs created by artisans in India. Many of our garments are hand finished in-house by the Ell and Cee team, therefore ensuring our garments reach our customers in pristine condition. We would expect nothing less.
