Our brand name "Bilitis dix-sept ans" was inspired by the film "Bilitis" which was directed by David Hamilton, a photographer, in the 1970's. Bilitis is the name of a French girl who was the main character of Hamilton's film. In french, the phrase "dix-sept ans" means "17 years old". However, the meaning has nothing to do with our line, for our clothes are not just for teenagers. We love women who are young at heart and who have a passion for the more innocent things in life. For those women, our clothes are for you.
