RACIL is a London based womenswear brand set up by designer Racil Chalhoub in 2015. It’s focus and ‘tour de force’ is the Tuxedo or Le Smoking – an item of clothing that the designer first fell in love with from a young age.

Racil launched her debut collection in Paris, which comprised of a capsule centered on variations of Tuxedos that could be worn separately or together depending on the occasion. This was the designer's introduction to her own world of 'Le Smoking'. A feminine world where elegance is first and foremost an attitude, and where modern and personal style convey a cosmopolitan soul.

Every collection is created to be worn in a multitude of ways and suits the life of the RACIL woman, chic, nonchalant and versatile, from day to night and night to day.  The brand’s loyal following come to rely on the playful dress up and down magic of the RACIL tuxedo.

Each season a new chapter evolves, and Racil tells a different story. Playfully re inventing 'Le Smoking', the collections keep growing in number of items and style offering. In the last collection RACIL showed around 100 sku's which also included dresses, tops, bouses and some accessories as well- all keeping the brand DNA at heart.

The RACIL line is now stocked by prestigious retailers including MatchesFashion.com, Selfridges, Browns, Montaigne Market, Tsum, Kirna Zabete and Boutique 1 amongst others.

The RACIL studio is located in Notting Hill
