ALY & RACHELLE, a transatlantic brand founded in London and Hong Kong in 2011 by Central Saint Martin graduate Christine Lam, and garment manufacturer Stanley Tung.
The concept behind ALY & RACHELLE is a story about a set of twins, ALY & RACHELLE. The girls’ personalities and styles are reflected in the design of the collection to suit different moods and personalities. ‘ALY is the more confident, courageous and sexy twin. Her style appeals to the power dresser in us all, whether at work or on a night out with friends. Whilst RACHELLE has a sweeter, quaint and more feminine persona. RACHELLE has an effortless finesse in looking pretty and chic, adorned by men and women alike’.
At ALY & RACHELLE, we take pride at being an affordable luxury brand for the entry-level designer market. Our aim is simple; to create high quality and timeless pieces that are unique and beautiful. This has been achieved through attention to detail, faultless craftsmanship and the finest quality of materials.
