Founded in 1993, on the shores of Nantua Lake, by Pierre Pernod and Raphaëlle Cavalli, Cotélac is a French brand that is renowned for its highly-distinctive positioning in “designer” ready-to-wear.
During her fine art studies in Lyon, Raphaëlle Cavalli bridged the gap between contemporary art and crafts.
Her love of working with materials has always been at the heart of Cotélac’s creative ateliers. Each
piece is pleated both manually and mechanically, in a movement that makes it unique. Rare.
At Cotélac, craftmanship has been omnipresent from the beginning. The designs, shaping,
knits, inking, and famous iconic pleats are entrusted to in-house workshops.
