The summer jacket. Personally, I've always loved a kimono and their versatility. Not just for the beach, they can transform an outfit in seconds adding bohemian glamour to an otherwise plain ensemble.  Style blogs are full of inspirational images showing how this floaty garment can translate into city dressing. I have a personal collection of far too many to mention, from high street to vintage, my own designs, to ones discovered at the back of my grandmothers wardobe. I can't resist a bit of fringing on a sleeve - the more tassel, the better. There are three delightful versions in our summer collection that instantly update your summer look. If you are hitting the festivals this summer, its a no brainer....

The weather was glorious this Monday and thank goodness for that, as we were on location for the latest Ell & Cee photoshoot - which of course was outside (nothing like a bit of stressful weather watching). We recently stumbled across Bloomsburys in Biddenden which offers luxury camping in the form of yurts, soul pads and the majestic Sioux teepee, as well as a  rather tempting menu at the Terrace restaurant and decided it was the perfect location for our bohemian inspired shoot. Images and new pieces from our haute hippy inspired collection will be on the website very soon but in the meantime, here are some of our behind the scenes pics The stunning Marike Wessels at FM London It was...

It's that time of year again where I feel incredibly lucky to call this a job, I get to start planning the summer shoot. I have always favoured the summer collections over winter, and the shoots are no different. The Ell & Cee signature look is relaxed, free and feminine with flowing fabrics in sheer, volumous shapes and summers carefree mood lends perfectly. Especially early summer where the anticipation for warmer temperatures gets us excited. Whether that materialises in this country however, is another matter. So what's inspiring us this time round... Sun bleached locks, gypsy tanned skin (fake obvs), layers of delicate fabrics trimmed with tassles and crochet, all topped off with a huge felt hat We've got our...

Accessorised with Astrid & Miyu simple gold pieces Take one hot blonde, a sheer kaftan, a camera and an open field and this is what you get. Free spirited and provoctative, our model Serina captured the 70's hippy vibe we were hoping to create perfectly. With Bardot like sexiness, she skipped and danced in the early evening sunlight... Wearing the Ell & Cee Bardot Maxi in Sorbet & Cream Crochet, we just had to name it after the goddess herself Both these styles are also available in shorter versions as well as the Maxi length and are available as part of our Bohemia Collection The Bardot Collection prices £97.50 - £125.00

                          Get naked this Spring...well almost, in Nude underwear you'll want to wear. Nude underwear is the staple of any successful summer outfit but it's not exactly known for being the most attractive of styles. Flesh toned lycra isn't exactly at the top of every girls wish list when you are dreaming of luxury lingerie. The new Ell & Cee Naked collection hopes to banish such illusions with streamlined shapes, sexy cut outs and gold touches. Made from super soft jersey and microfibre, its both practical and comfortable. Also available in Black.  The thong is super minimal offering just a touch of coverage where you need it. Designed...

For years Boudoir photography has been hugely popular in the US and now it seems us Brits just can't get enough of it either. A strictly women only territory, female photographers are setting up studios styled as bedrooms all over the country, with the most decadent of surroundings - think Pastel Velvets and French furniture. Tacky this is not. Women are choosing to bare all (remember Samantha's naked shoot in Sex and The City?) or dress in fabulous lingerie or loungewear. Designed to capture you at you very best and boost confidence, take these images to the grave with you as proof of how fabulous you once looked when everything has gone slightly south. Bridal Boudoir is on the increase and...

Ell & Cee began way back in 2002 making small handmade collections for London's chicest lifestyle boutiques. With the help of some lovely press and some fashion darlings, these delicate fancies soon found their way to London Fashion Week and Ell & Cee began dressing fashionable derrieres everywhere..
