The Amsterdam-based Les Coyotes de Paris brand was created in 2015. The brand's founder Marieke Meulendijks was a seasoned designer, with experience mostly in creating men's clothing for Scotch & Soda. Many years of working for an international company made Marieke want to create her own women's and girls' fashion brand. As Marieke says herself, the name Les Coyotes de Paris emerged spontaneously, inspired by Parisian street life. Marieke was watching French women running on a major Paris street and thought they looked like fast, clever and beautiful coyotes - so she decided to name her women's and girls' brand inspired by the observation.
Les Coyotes de Paris is defined by styles that revive the silhouettes from days gone by, mostly the classic and cult cuts from the 1960's and 1970's. The clothes are made with meticulous attention to detail and from top-quality fabrics, with nothing left to chance. Les Coyotes de Paris, despite being a new brand, has gained a worldwide recognition. Each collection can be bought from online luxury clothing retailers and from renowned departments stores such as Le Bon Marché in Paris, Isetan in Tokio and Harrods in London.
Les Coyotes de Paris girls' clothes combine classic cuts with unique and very distinctive details. The brand's motto is the famous Oscar Wilde quote: "To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance." The designer wants her beautiful, feminine clothes to inspire the girls who wear them to use fashion to discover and express their inner beauty through individual style. The spring/summer 2018 Les Coyotes de Paris collection contains dresses, tops, skirts, shorts and jackets. On sunny days you can throw on the airy Ava dress in white and blue stripes with dyed flax yarn. The dress has special elastic straps on the shoulders with the "Les Coyotes de Paris” label. Erika - a flared cotton dress in horizontal white and blue stripes, with a small embroidered logo on the chest and rib knits at the neckline and sleeves. Florence - a romantic, vintage-style inspired dress with beautiful embroidery details, made of 100% cotton voile in white.
Depending on your mood, you can also pick the romantic sleeveless Laila blouse, featuring a collar and double-layered ruffles. The short sleeved Claudia top, in white and navy stripes, with a rib knit at the neck. Stripy Josee blouse, made from a viscose knit: a comfortable close fit, long sleeves with flared cuffs and a high collar. The long-sleeved Romie blouse is a basic must-have of this season. The jersey knit makes this top fit closely to the body while vivid white and red stripes add unique character. 80's inspired Nelly sweatshirt, made from soft, comfortable cotton, with unusual ruffles on the shoulders and at the cuffs. The classic pink sweatshirt Patti and the Sam hoodie in grey marl will make for comfortable, relaxed wearing. These sweatshirts will match perfectly with the retro-inspired Jenny shorts, either white with black trimming or black with white trimming.
