Frankie Shop: The cool-girl brand that influencers are going wild for

Since launching in 2014, Frankie Shop has become a favourite with fashion’s most recognisable influencers, and even boasts celebrity fans such as British singer Rita Ora.

The label has two stores in New York and Paris as well as its own website. It was inspired by London’s local fashion markets found in places such as Portobello and Shoreditch, founder Gaelle Drevet told Grazia last year.

It’s a one-stop destination for minimal, flattering pieces that aren’t going to break the bank.

Gaelle, who previously worked for ABC News as a producer and journalist, said: ‘I’ve always loved fashion. When I was on assignment in London for long period of times, I discovered the local fashion markets like Portobello, Shoreditch, and all the independent designers that made wonderful things.’

She added that she’s got every intention of making Frankie Shop the ‘go-to place for the downtown working girl.’

Danish fashion influencer Jeanette Madsen also sported the tee this week, along with Copenhagen-based Emili Sindlev, Spanish creative María Bernad, Paris-based Estelle Chemouny, and influencer Sonia Lyson, who can often be found in London.  

Meanwhile, popstar Rita Ora has also declared herself a fan of the tee, having recently posted a picture of herself wearing the brand’s white version layered with gold jewellery on Instagram. 

While the trend has been exploding onto social media, the British high street has followed suit and is already stocking alternatives to Frankie Shop’s look, including Mango, H&M and Monki.
