Hellessy was launched in 2012 by designer Sylvie Millstein from her Soho studio. Working alongside houses such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Harrods, she was able to gain a strong understanding of the luxury fashion industry. These experiences mixed with her multicultural French/Japanese background are the pillars behind her women's day and evening style.
The Hellessy collections are produced ethically and locally in NYC. The brand focuses on timeless pieces that can be worn over and over again.
