Designers at Symphony
Established in 1962 in the southern French city of Nîmes, Cacharel was named after founder Jean Bousquet’s favorite local bird. Over the years, a long line of designers have worked on the Cacharel collections, including Agnès B, Azzedine Alaïa, Corinne Cobson, Suzanne Clements, Inacio Ribeiro, Mark Eley, Wakako Kishimoto and Cédric Charlier. In 2011, the fashion house appointed the Chinese design duo Ling Liu and Dawei Sun as creative directors in a return to the brand’s core values: unostentatious femininity, charm and gracefulness are the two designers’ watchwords. Under their guidance, the Cacharel woman is tender, sassy and dynamic — and she’s as elegant and gentle as ever.
