About Us

Lily and Lionel is a luxury British fashion brand steeped in family history. The real Lily was an expert seamstress, whilst her husband Lionel supplied London’s most prestigious stores with beautiful garments. They were also grandparents to Creative Director Alice Stone. Lily and Lionel have inspired not only the name of the brand, but also the dedication to producing up-lifting pieces that feel sumptuous and tell a story.

Lily and Lionel have been producing award-winning, iconic prints since 2008.  The first 6 years’ of the brand were focused exclusively on the signature scarf line, until the launch of the brand’s debut Resort and Swimwear collections in 2014. Marking a new chapter in the brand’s history, this was succeeded by its very first Ready-to-Wear range for A/W ‘15. With over 200 global stockists, the brand enjoys a strong international presence in the UK, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Europe, Japan and Australia. Lily and Lionel is also proud to be present in some of the world’s most renowned stores, including Liberty, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum & Mason, Le Bon Marché and Nordstrom.

As a print house, Lily and Lionel is constantly exploring innovative ways of creating prints and transferring them onto the finest fabrics. From hand-painted prints to digitally constructed designs, each one draws inspiration from a source close to the brand, whether a favourite artist or a photo from the family album. This is a hallmark of Lily and Lionel.
