About: Welcome to the world of Lily and Lionel, a luxury British womenswear brand creating timeless, storytelling prints in feminine silhouettes.

Lily and Lionel’s Creative Director, Alice Stone, noticed a gap in the market for bright, contemporary prints that could easily slot into a woman’s everyday wardrobe. So, in 2009, Alice launched her label, which she named after her grandparents who both worked in the textile industry. Initially, the brand focused on scarves before evolving into ready-to-wear in A/W 2015.

Now, Lily and Lionel produces four collections a year – with a mix of printed dresses, shirts, skirts and scarves – and is stocked in more than 150 stores worldwide. The signature prints – which combine a very British sense of humour with a love of storytelling and hand-painting – are created in the brand’s London studio. At the heart of the brand is the desire to create clothes and accessories that are relevant, wearable and, ultimately, inspiring for today’s woman.
