South London-based label KNWLS – rebranded and renamed from Charlotte Knowles in 2021 – was founded in 2017 by Charlotte Knowles and partner Alexandre Arsenault, who met while studying at Central Saint Martins.
KNWLS strives to embody an empowered but disruptive vision of femininity, dangerous and sensual. A tough, utilitarian sensibility, where pieces can feel like armour and challenges the modern feminine wardrobe.
