What do you get when you combine Parisian style with Japanese simplicity? The answer is Hellessy, the ready-to-wear line born of French/Japanese designer, Sylvie Millstein. The Paris born beauty lived in Tokyo for years before moving to NYC in 2007, and worked for esteemed fashion houses Givenchy and Chanel, as well as Harrods before using her wide experience to create her own collection. Hellessy’s effortless pieces are crafted in luxe materials that translate seamlessly into a modern, working wardrobe. This season’s collection proved no different, and included a variety of wearable items - from a perfect autumn poncho to a pair of leather bellbottoms paired down with a simple striped top. We caught up with Sylvie to get her style tips for dressing chic and maintaining a well-edited wardrobe.
