Since its creation back in 1995, Comptoir des Cotonniers has been designing collections that combine modernity with timeless chic, creative flair with fashion trends. Comptoir aims to offer all free and open-minded women —across generations— an accessible and contemporary interpretation of fashion. The company attempts to appeal to both chic mothers and their fashion-forward daughters, even holding Online casting for the real-life pairs in their ad campaigns. Although the line is designed in France, the pieces are manufactured separately all over the world, in China, Bulgaria, India, Portugal, and beyond.

The silhouette combines natural femininity and refinement, the keywords for a creative approach in which everything is designed for women to feel at ease with themselves. Through constant attention paid to the cut, tonalities that subtly play with contrasts, exclusive prints every season and ultra-feminine details, the collections interpret current trends while preserving the very essence of the brand: a perfect balance between charm and style.
