Fabienne Chapot: the eponymous label
Fabienne Chapot is a Dutch fashion brand who create ultra-feminine, colourful womenswear, footwear, and accessories. This Amsterdam-based label finds the fun in fashion, so expect to see surprising prints, vivid colour options and contemporary shapes with an eclectic edge. Fabienne Chapot loves to introduce playful, easy-to-wear pieces into their lines and encourages women to be daring with their style. The label’s collections are always in high demand; consistently popular with editors and stylists, they have cemented their name as an IT-girl brand and created such a buzz that when they released their iconic lobster-print shirt, it immediately sold out. They attract women who like to dress a little bolder and a little quirkier; they find pure joy in dressing up yet value the artistry in fashion. Their designers proudly produce their unique prints by hand and not by computer, giving each collection an exclusive, bespoke feel.
Dutch Fashion with a Balinese influence
Fabienne began her company as an accessory label in 2006 originally named FAB. She found her inspiration in Bali, falling in love with the colourful prints and inventive patterns. The accessory world was rather bland at the time, so Fabienne focused on bringing rich colour to the market. This quickly caught the attention of style-hunters and encouraged Fabienne to press forward with her dream of starting a clothing collection. In 2016, Fabienne decided to introduce her ready to wear line and rebranded to become the eponymous Fabienne Chapot. This independent brand started with a small staff of 9, which then grew into a passionate team of 45 within three years. Continuing to grow, the label has expanded into a further 1000 points of sale across the globe, owns a successful online shop, and a number of boutiques in Holland. The brand releases two collections per year, and its headquarters remain in Amsterdam.
Wearing Fabienne Chapot
This sought-after label is here to brighten up your wardrobe, adding pops of colour and clashing patterns into your everyday style. The collection of accessories would be a great way to start wearing the label – their statement bags, in particular, make a great addition to any outfit. If you tend to choose neutral palettes and want to branch out, this label encourages you to break away from your safe-zone and try a quirky print. Although they’re known for their print dresses, their blouses & tunics are just as revered. Try teaming with booties to give a feminine aesthetic and blazers for a smart-but-cool office vibe. If you prefer casual, go for T-shirts and jeans; wear high heels for date night or sneakers, jumpers & knitwear for weekend chic. Top it all off with some stylish outerwear. Their signature feminine tailoring also shines through in their coats and would be an appealing addition to any look. Whatever you choose from this playful, colourful brand, Fabienne Chapot will make you feel stylish, feminine and full of joy.
