The Seoul-based brand with a cosmopolitan soul reimagines its signature minimalist aesthetic in a collection of essential wardrobe staples and high-quality outerwear. Focusing on a balance between form and substance, Le 17 Septembre offers intricate tailoring that leaves room for imagination and invites wearers to add a little of their own personality to each look.
This collection focuses on materials and quality with an emphasis on structural, concise forms and sophisticated colour palettes. By constant experimentation with forms and cuts in her own intuitive way, the designer of the brand creates not only pieces but wearable stories. Using layers as a mix-and-match method, Grace Shin proves that Le 17 Septembre garments are a part of one narrative – the narrative of humble elegance. «A product that is functionally well-made without superfluity must have a beautiful appearance, and in this case, details become an essential element to express the tone and meaning of the collection», explains the brand’s founder and designer.
The FW’23 collection depicts the beauty of minimalist practicality and the way it is now endlessly intertwined with our daily lives. Using cashmere, premium quality suede, extra fine wool and cotton alongside many other high-end fabrics, Le 17 Septembre lets textures become intriguing and enchanting on a sensual level. Pleasant to the touch and intricately tailored to ensure the most elegant silhouettes, the brand’s wool jersey pieces and knitwear set an example of comfortable yet elevated off-duty looks. The costs include hand-made details, which are usually more suitable for finer fabrics – yet Le 17 Septembre aims for the highest quality and a personal touch. A variety of shapes, lengths, materials and moods within the collection creates a vast ground for creativity, offering possibilities for styling and layering.
