Growing up in the suburbs, LECAVALIER found respite from teenage ennui within her own imagination. Much of LECAVALIER’s design process is influenced by these acts of personal storytelling — she describes her offering of women’s separates as the clothes she would ‘dream of wearing.’ The label’s offering of women’s shirts, shirt dresses, and full wardrobe blur the boundaries between this fantasy world and reality.
While Interning at RAF SIMONS, Marie-Ève Lecavalier launched her eponymous womenswear label in 2018, following her studies in Switzerland at HEAD Genève, and her receipt of the Chloé Prize and a special mention for her Masters collection at Festival d’Hyères’. In 2019, she was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, and was also awarded the CAFA/Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent.
LECAVALIER launched exclusively worldwide with the partnership of leading e-commerce retailer SSENSE. LECAVALIER is now growing beyond its Montreal roots, spreading its ethos of inclusiveness around the globe.
