From the celebrity likes of Dua Lipa and Kourtney Kardashian to popular Instagrammers Soraya Bakhtiar and Patricia Manfield, her pieces have been worn by a smorgasbord of influential women.
She only launched her fashion label three years ago, but Central Saint Martins graduate Eleanor Balfour has already garnered an impressive roster of big-name fans.
Having attended Central Saint Martins, Eleanor went on to work for Figue and Oscar de la Renta before setting up her own eponymous label of high-end, chic, wearable pieces.
Her typical aesthetic comprises a sort of fluid formality, with tailored pieces made more every-day via soft, flowing fabrics and feminine design details.
Used to working with simpler mono-tone materials, for spring/summer Eleanor is playing more freely with fabrication, with almost tie-dye accents adding a modern edge to her collection.
Kourtney’s clean, fuss-free taste saw her drawn to a pair of high-waisted belted jeans, while Dua’s penchant for Punchier pieces meant she made a dart for the vinyl trench coat with faux fur trim.
Paricia Manfield was also spotted in the vinyl trench, as well as the new season slim-fit flared trousers in the burnt orange tie-dye.
Raised in England, New York has been her base for the past seven years but she’s now dividing her time between the two. “It will be a bit more trans-Atlantic” she told WWD. “I am really catering to the girl who I am designing for. She travels a lot. I know what she wants to wear from a hot country to a cold country, and how versatile you can make pieces.”
While prices are a tad steep – ranging from around £300 to £1500 – for an impulsive purchase, it’s well worth flagging Eleanor Balfour for your next lust-have item.
