A former fashion buyer, Racil Chalhoub is au fait with what women really want – and need – in their wardrobes. Inspired by the smoking jackets she fell in love with as a girl, the London-based designer marries Parisian tailoring with a Lebanese sensibility to create sleek, exceptionally tailored pieces. Launched in 2015, her debut collection showcased variations of tuxedos that could be worn separately or together depending on the occasion. This was the introduction of ‘Le Smoking’ – a world where elegance is first and foremost an attitude. Every collection since then has followed this theme, created to be worn in a multitude of ways for day-to-night styling and season-transcending longevity. Expect immaculate shirting and sumptuous slip dresses, all with a feminine, nonchalant air worn by the likes of Camille Charrière and Leandra Medine.
