“My look is a cocktail. I’m not as nicely turned out as the French, but I don’t care like the English.’
—Jane Birkin

ONCE UPON A TIME IN NY CITY

Since the beginning, The Frankie Shop has championed an authentic and intimate relationship with fashion.


When native Française-turned-New Yorker Gaëlle Drevet founded the brand, she did so with the intention of serving women like herself— who believe feeling good means looking like themselves. Women who didn’t necessarily subscribe to the codes and cuts of most clothes designed for them. Real women with real lives and an unapologetic sense of self. Women who work as hard as the play. Et voilà… the idea for The Frankie Shop was born. 


Just as soon as they opened their doors in New York’s Lower East Side in 2014, The Frankie Shop became synonymous with smart, oversized suiting: the trademark style of a signature aesthetic rooted in individuality and unfettered self-expression. Modern and timeless, cosmopolitan and universal, done and undone, Paris and New York, masculin-féminin…  Frankie does it all and for everyone.

This spirit proved to resonate well beyond NYC. Today, the Frankie Shop is a multinational concept store with locations in both New York and Paris and is carried in top luxury department stores across Europe. In 2022, they launched their men's and unisex lines, reaffirming their inclusive ethos and irreverent role in the global fashion marketplace.

Then and now, they’ve been guided by the belief that good style is hard to define. And so are they.
