About Milou & Pilou
Milou & Pilou is a vintage-flavour clothing brand for girls based in Barcelona.
The idea of Milou & Pilou started with the need to re-create the looks we used to wear in the old good times, based on the nostalgia of happy childhood memories. We offer retro-inspired pieces made in neutral colours, wide-cut lines and pinch of vintage-flavour in every garment that makes every collection unique an different.
The brand started working with denim and corduroys, two of our favourite fabrics, stone-washed and dyed with intentional irregularities that make them singular and the vintage look we love. The fabrics like light poplins, organic cotton and traditional linens where included progressively, but all our items are traditionally, locally and ethically manufactured in Barcelona, respecting craftsmanship and the traditional textile techniques. This makes every collection quite limited, pieces made to last.
In Milou & Pilou the high quality of clothing is what drives us. For that reason, all our production is made locally in Barcelona. We want to preserve a sustainable clothing activity, ethically produced and contribute to the clothing craftmanship to make every piece unique.
Who is behind the whole thing?
The brand was based on the vintage looks and retro pieces from happy childhood memories from mama Alicia. With a little team of four enthusiastic people all influenced by those same patterns, the first collection FW14 was launched exclusively online but progressively you can find our collections in some stylish online portals and media, especially in the UK, US and Australia but also in retailers around the world.
Because girls are just girls once, and because we should never resign of quality and craftsmanship for little nice things. Let them be little!
Where can you find us?
Our Headquarter is located in the beautiful city of Barcelona, so if you are nearby come and say “hello” we love visits. We have an Atelier as well as our offices. In the Atelier you can also see the “behind-the-scenes” of our pieces, so you can see how we design, cut and sew all the dresses, skirts and dresses from each collection. You can also have a look to all the different fabrics we love to work with. Please contact us here to schedule a visit. click here We love hearing from you!
We are proud to be in Barcelona as we are in a rich and long tradition area of textil industry. For that reason we love to collaborate with local and small design schools and many non-profit institutions mainly aiming at encouraging the innovation process in the knitting and sewing. Because we believe sewing is an art and we need to protect and to keep not only the good quality but also the local production to make every piece as unique. We also love to collaborate with some sewing schools, because there is challenge to keep and enhance the good quality of textil tradition.
For some of our pieces, we had the collaboration of FITEX who has become a reference centre for companies involved in R D I regarding the textile-fashion-apparel sector. The challenge is impelling innovation in a wide sense: product, process, management, knowledge of clothes. Fitex has helped us to develop some of our knitwear pieces, made in pure finest merino wool, working on an ecologic dyeing process, pieces made to last that you will not easily find everywhere.
