  You probably have heard of RAOUL and immediately thought womenswear.  You would be correct, but did you know they also create beautiful handbags that follow their philosophy of being a leader in affordable luxury and a byword for easy yet intelligent chic? We love the Miss Pogany satchel which is elegant, fresh and smart.  

Over the years, RAOUL’s accessories line has been growing and as a commitment for RAOUL’s decision to offer their customers the ideal choice of accessories to complete the Raoul look they have collaborated with accessory and footwear designer Raphael Young for Pre-Fall 2014.  Young, a French designer, who is of South Korean descent, has been touted as one of the hottest shoe and accessory designers in Paris and New York.  After lending his creative design skills to some of the best Parisian and Italian couture studios as well as creating shoes for Manish Arora, Elie Saab, Louise Goldin and Hannah Marshall, Raphael finally launched his eponymous label in 2008. In 2011 Raphael made a move to NYC to head the shoe design team at Calvin Klein Collection. Beyoncé, Lady gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry, and Rihanna have worn Raphael Young designs from Vogue Covers to Red Carpet events.

RAOUL is the homegrown fashion and leather goods brand from the house of F J Benjamin. Since its international debut at the 2010 New York and Paris Fall/Winter shows, RAOUL has been creating a buzz with its sleek take on contemporary affordable luxury womenswear.

The brainchild of Douglas and Odile Benjamin, each RAOUL collection is creatively directed personally by the dynamic husband and wife team. Singapore-based F J Benjamin is an industry leader in the development and distribution of international luxury and lifestyle brands across Asia, with a rich heritage dating back to the 1950s.

F J Benjamin launched RAOUL in Singapore in 2002 as a men’s shirt label, branching out to womenswear in response to demand for affordable tailored pieces with uncompromising standards of design and quality.

As the creative force behind the label, Odile gathers her inspiration from the RAOUL woman. She is multitasking, confident, accomplished. Fresh, witty and yet definitely a lady who curates an easy, vivid style that’s always perfectly pitched. Every collection is subject to vigorous refinement until Odile is certain that each piece has a place in the RAOUL woman’s wardrobe of hardworking favorites. 

As a testament to RAOUL’s standing in the fashion world, celebrities such as Rebecca Romijn, Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence and The Duchess of Cambridge have been seen wearing items from the brand’s collections.

International media including Vogue US, British Vogue, WWD, Harpers’ Bazaar and the New York Times have identified RAOUL as a label to watch.
