Wright Le Chapelain creates unique up-cycled and responsibly made clothing. We support charities and offer an alternative fashion system.
Born in Britain and France respectively, we draw on our different backgrounds to explore the notion of the familiar within the European wardrobe. We design unique and timeless pieces that are contemporary yet rooted in the everyday.
We research, develop, and manufacture our collections within the UK, reducing our carbon footprint and developing a personal relationship with the skilled tailors and seamstresses creating our garments. We source our suitings from British heritage mills, our organic cotton from Italy, and our up-cycled garments from local charities.
Since the Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, CRISIS, a London based charity working to end homelessness, became a partner in the up-cycling initiative of our label. The charity provides garments that are meticulously unpicked and re-worked into unique pieces. A percentage of each sale goes directly back to the charity.
