The Weill family spirit has established a genealogy of values rooted both in tradition and innovation. Led since 2017 by Franco-Brazilian fashion designer Mathilde Castello Branco, the Weill brand benefits from her extensive experience from her time at Hermès, Martin Margiela, Lanvin and Azzaro.
With a keen sense of the Weill family’s heritage and of the richness of its history, Mathilde brings the promise of new inspiration to its collections. Her signature is a feminine, delicate fashion with a subtle break from conventions: “I like surprises: the unexpected detail, the original reinvention in the cut of a garment, surprising inventive mixes that give character to the silhouette.”
The Weill client is the epitome of the modern Parisian woman, the kind of muse who distinguishes herself with a startlingly je-ne-sais-quoi, a subtle blend of sophistication and casualness that is so typically French.
Generations of Style
Weill is a family story intertwined with the world of fashion. Created In 1892, the brand is the brainchild of Albert Weill who arrived in Paris to set up a small womenswear workshop. Two generations later, in 1950, his grandchild propelled the family business into the modern era, and into the pages of fashion magazines. Moving to mass-produced ready-to-wear, Jean-Claude Weill transformed the brand into what it still is to this day: designer clothes for demanding women.
