Label Love: Les Touristes

Sometimes a collection comes along and we simply fall head over heels. That is so the case with our latest Label Love: Les Touristes.

A collection to delight and covet Les Touristes blends lifestyle with fashion and creates a nostalgic, vintage feel through its delightful use of pattern and print. These must-have gowns, scarves and toiletry bags are made for lounging in at home and for showing off in on that long-awaited trip away.

Jérôme Gigot and Yann Gicquel, creators of Les Touristes, have been greatly influenced by their voyages to the four corners of the earth. Established in the Marais district of Paris in 2003 with its own boutique the collection is actually created in India. Gogot and Gicquel work closely with a family in Jaipur who use traditional screen printing methods to create the cheerfully off-beat prints. New to the collection in Restoration Yard are the most lovely of yoga mats we've ever seen.

The Desirable Dressing Gowns

Les Touristes' dressing gowns...what can we say? We adore each piece because popping one on makes us feel like a silver screen idol whether it's for Sunday morning brunch at home or we are lounging luxuriously in a boutique hotel (we wish). Each beautifully printed gown lets us channel our inner Katherine Hepburn or Lauren Bacall. Which one are you?

The Hey-there Headscarves

Ah the headscarf. A Jackie O favourite and now a very Spring/Summer 2021 finish to a look . Just add big sunnies for that polished laidback elegance feel. Not a headscarf convert? These gorgeous printed scarves look equally brilliant thrown on over a tee and skirt combi or, just because they are so pretty, try one as a belt to lift your favourite dress to a new dimension.

The Must-have Make-up Bags

These little beauty beauty bags make the perfect gift for self or indeed for others. And really, who doesn't need a co-ordinating dressing gown and toiletry bag? We know. They are pretty perfect.

The Yay Yoga Mats

Wellbeing comes in many forms and Les Touristes' pretty in print yoga mats help us feel good before we even begin our practice. Run of the mill yoga mats are not for us. The two-sided mats have only one complication - which pattern works for your um and ah today?
