Solène Roure is an independent designer who has worked with some of the most recognizable names in fashion, including Louis Vuitton and Hussein Chalayan.

From Paris, France, she won her first drawing contest at age five, and by 2006 had graduated first in her class at Paris’ Creapole ESDI school of design, where she was awarded the Class of 2006 Communication award.

Fresh out of school, she plunged straight into the world of corporate design.
Working around the world as an in-house designer, Solène brought her talents to powerhouses like Nike (Portland, Oregon), Toyota (Tokyo, Japan), Adidas (Nurnberg, Germany) and Puma (London, UK). While at Nike, she first began developing her passion for streetwear fashion and innovation.

At Puma, her work caught the eye of acclaimed fashion designer, Hussein Chalayan, who brought Solène into close collaboration across five seasons. Together, they won Travel +Leisure Magazine’s “best bag” award in 2011 for their hooded backpack concept.

In 2010, she set up her own design studio, having worked since then as a freelance designer, creative consultant and fashion illustrator. Along the way, she has built a high profile client, list working with brands like Levi's and The North Face and more recently Clarks.

She continues to specialize in accessory and footwear design, with a special emphasis on exploring the exciting and still-fledgling intersection of sport innovation and fashion. That focus is perhaps best exemplified in her recent innovations for Louis Vuitton’s sneaker collections, typifying the easy, minimalist grace and high functionalism that has come to characterize her work.
Solène strives in all her work to balance sleek with sporty, smart with sexy.

“I would like to provide people with highly-crafted, sustainable products that can take them from work to the gym to a social event,” she says. “Above all, I enjoy designing products that connect with people on an emotional level.”
Solène is always looking for new and challenging projects.
